  1. That is so strange to me, timing yourself. I wrote my first book in one summer, because it was all I could think about. I was so obsessed with it that I was constantly writing, weather it was in my head or on my computer.

  2. write out my idea. don't care about spelling. as long as you can read it. no worry just write away and make it bleed with emotion.

  3. Not only was this incredibly helpful and uplifting because I'm writing two novels (under two different pennames) at the same time, but also because you are absolutely fascinating to watch speak. You emote SO much, it's really wonderful. I feel as if you are genuinely trying to help out those who are watching your video, rather than just spewing some information that may or may not work. You're point of view is helpful and the way you are expressing yourself is warm, and I really needed this. Thank you.

  4. I'm currently writing a book my self it includes

    1. Political strife
    2. The setting is fantasy so magic and swords
    3. The main character is more of an neutral (only just mind you any lower he would probably be the villain instead)
    4. There is a lot of morale grey

  5. What happened with my novel was:
    I thought of some, and said "Hey that'd be a cool book"
    Then I opened up google docs. Just made the book up as I was writing it. While I wasn't writing it I was usually thinking of where my story could go. I didn't know when the book was going to end until it ended. I didn't schedule my writing, I just wrote whenever I wanted to [which was most of the time], and my revision was scarce, I didn't change any plots. All I did was make my words flow, and grammatically sound. I also did not pay for an editor.
    The novel's currently being published, not released yet. Only took about a year to write it.

  6. GReat tips. You can add what Aaron Sorkin says: You don't have a story if you don't have the "But, And Then, and except." I am looking forward to Nanowrimo 2016.

  7. I like to listen to music that goes with the theme of what I right while I right also I am currently writing a book calls The old Kingdom that is a midevil fantasy with war betrayal and more

  8. Thanks so much for making this vid! I already have a great storyline (in my opinion) but don't have the time or really, confidence to start writing, what should I do?

  9. For beginners try to start writing books on Wattpad. You can read others books too! It's a really good site for beginners.

  10. how do books end up in the library? do they have to aquire a certain amount of recognition first? what if I just gave my public library a few copies for free? I just want to see myself near Tolstoy.
