Would You Like To Become An Author? I’ll Show You How.

I will tell you the secrets of writing in a few words.  I have found that almost every human being on earth can write.  They are  usually not aware of this amazing gift until they begin.

There are five easy steps to writing:

1.  Write anything off the top of your head.

2.  Use your life and the lives of those around you.

3.  Use your dreams?  Why Not?

4.  Create amazing characters. Funny, intelligent, sad, troubled.

5.  Describe your character for the reader.

The Wonders of Life

Now, did this snippet make you want to know what happens next?   The title is very important and should be inviting. Something that catches a readers eye. The first four sentences should be the “Hook.”  This should keep the reader interested, and force him to read on. most of all, the cover should be visually captivating. do you think you can do it?  Yes you can, so get busy.
