Getting published in today’s world is a daunting task. Self publishing might seem like the easiest route, but it requires just as much work, if not more, to get noticed. Matt Banner from OnBlastBlog offers some tips and strategies for becoming a better and more efficient writer.
We’ve all been there: it’s late, your eyes feel like they’re going to sink back into your skull, and you’re on a third cup of coffee staring at a blank page. Maybe you work a day job while you get your writing career off the ground? I did that too, but hang in there, it gets better.
Keep building your online business as an author. With these tips, you’ll be able to improve your skills and your productivity:
● Try asking more questions in your writing, even if it’s something you do outside the books. You might find that the answers help you come up with new ideas.
● Start with the ending, sometimes it’s easier to work backward instead of chasing an end point.
● Write what you know, and put aside time for research on the things you don’t.
● Don’t be afraid to look at what other successful authors are saying.
Combine these tips with the additional help in the infographic below and you’ll have a winning recipe for success.
