Ever thought about writing a book? Never thought about writing a book?
Today's guest Liz Thompson from House Style Editing is introducing us to the world of writing a book; she shares reasons why you might want to write your very own book. She takes us through the complete writing process and shares her secrets all around finding the right editor for your first book.
Takeaways from today's show:
Writing a book is a project with multiple phases, you can't skip or blend the different periods without messing up the result.
Finding the right editor for your book is essential. Talk to as many editors as you need to talk to, to find one that speaks your language, has experience in your genre and just feels like the right fit.
During the writing process, it makes sense to let members of your audience proofread your book. Make sure you give the book to people that aren't loved once that would prase your work even if it was awful.
To make the proofreading process easier give them specific questions they can answer about every chapter of the book. So you can find out where exactly you need to go in and improve your work.
