Like a forger, use your pen to carve a weapon. With intoxicating prose. Etch new life. Your words, your message should captivate, it allures. People will attack with negative comments, you have to get back up, keep writing. After all, you are the wordsmith! This is your story.
Loyalty is better than royalty. Find yourself a team, have them read or spread your message by word of mouth. Make sure everyone goals are align then achieve it!
Find the Gnre
(Yes, people will just as fast point out he/she spelled genre wrong, Your the wordsmith, you wanted something different. Just continue..)
Another way to find your genre. There is a car crash on 31st St. Say the book is a mystery/thriller. Instantly what comes to mind? Was the car tampered with? You want to find clues. You want to know why or how. Say we change it to romance, or family life. Are you crying yet? No? okay, say a family just got back from a wonderful evening event. How badly do you want your audience to weep? Lets test it... A family driving back home after celebrating at an art exhibit, the mother decided to surprise her beloved husband after he sacrificed something he truly loved. Then the accident happens. This time direct the audience... is the family okay? I hope nobody got hurt. Then add this, “Syble, Syble honey. Yes this is an emergency. Yes...a collision.” Six Year Black a short story coming soon!
My goal is to leave my fans craving for more? What I hope to achieve is a story where the audience picks an outcome. That right there is a virus. It leaves them with various questions: Are they going to reunite, will she live, or why did the novel end that way? This virus spreads like a uhm...a disease.
Fans will share the enticing tale they just read. Questions that linger they spread on to a family member or maybe close buddy. "So how do you interpret this part? How/Why did the author do that? Let me know when you finish reading!" There only one answer...Comment if you have an answer?!
