1. Write everyday even if it’s only an hour a day, you’ll get further ahead than if you try and wait until you have “more time,” which never seems to happen with our busy lives.
2. Write an outline, do a step by step, chapter by chapter list of what happens
3. Read, read and read other novels in similar genres to what you want to write
4. Don’t edit yourself in the first draft, finessing will come later and you will get better with practice.
5. Finish The Book.
