Step one, write a good book. Step two, take our advice!
I am a teen writer and I currently have several books that I have written over the years that I have stopped in the middle of them but somehow keep coming up with new ideas and topics… which leads to a start of a new book and, yet again, unable to finish. One thing that holds me back from finishing my books is that I cannot come up with a title for any of them. I don’t know how I want them to end, just that I go with the flow and write in them whenever I get an idea then stop again. All my books range in topics, but mainly paranormal. I’m thinking about waiting until I finish these books/series before coming up with titles but if I cant sit down and write a book start to finish without stopping, how can I ever finish what I have? I need help, please!!!
Want to write a book? So did I...
I had decided to write a book “about what!?” I thought but I didn’t know.
I had pondered for years, constantly searching for a topic.
One day I witnessed a horrible murder, the police had crept into my back yard and were lying in wait for my elderly grandfather who was tending his opium plants, creeping up through the underbrush they leaped out of a tree with their automatic shotguns blazing – and my grandpa was killed in a hail of bullets.
Suddenly a topic popped into my head, I would write a book about talking daisies.
