So, you’ve decided to become a writer. Great! Wonderful! Supervious! This world is always in need of more storytellers. Whether you fancy writing science fiction, romance, non-fiction, children’s, history, horror, or fantasy, being a writer is an endless adventure. One of my favorite quotes of all times is said by Toni Morrion:
“If there’s a book that you want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.”
Now, that you’ve established that you’re a writer, you go ahead and craft out your first book. It’s done. Congratulants! Writing out an entire book takes discipline, determination, and devotion. Most importantly it proves your seriousness to the trade.
Right. You’ve written your book, now what? Publish it? With Amazon’s free self-publishing option, publishing has become so simple, it’s only a few clicks away. But wait! Before you go off and press that publish button, ask yourself these questions:
. I wrote this book, but I have truly learned all there is to know about the art or writing?
. Will my book be able to stand up with other high quality novels already out there?
. Is my book ready for the world to read?
. Am I ready to be a published author?
If you’re asking yourself any of these questions, than consider what you need to do in order to improve.
Being a writer is much more than simply putting pen to paper, it’s a learning experience. Just the same as any other subject in life, it pays to learn a thing or two about the craft and understand its techniques. Yes, there is a technique to writing, it’s not just putting one word in front of the other. Even if you have your book edited, chances are as a new writer you haven’t learned the methods of writing. So, how do you learn? The answer is easier than you think. Just enroll yourself into the Wolf Pirate Project! This nonprofit organization is an online writer’s workshop program geared towards helping aspiring authors sharpen their skills and become bona fide writers. You mentor will work with you throughout your entire book, editing your work and teaching you the important fundamentals of storytelling.
The founder of Wolf Pirate Project, Catherine Rudy, and her scurvy crew are on a quest to bring more quality written stories into the world of literature one book at a time. I know firsthand just how well they can advance you as an author. In 2008, Wolf Pirate took me under their wing and turned my book, The Warning, into a five star rate novel! They again assisted me in 2011 with Atlantic Pyramid, which earned a spot on the Best Books of 2014 list! I can honestly say that without the guidance of Wolf Pirate I’d most likely have never reached such limits.
If you really care for your book and becoming a genuine storyteller than take your writing farther and watch it blossom with the help of this wonderful group. Join the crew today!
