Hello there.

Hope y'all had a good weekend. I decided to start my first Novel Writing post on this lovely Sunday evening.

So you want to write a book?

Writing and finishing a book feels so, so rewarding. The hard part is keeping motivated to practice the art. I'll go into motivation in another chapter.

I want to start from the beginning of the beginning.

Q: How do you start a book?
A: You'll need inspiration.

Q: What is inspiration?
A: From wikipedia "Inspiration (from the Latin inspirare, meaning 'to breathe into') refers to an unconscious burst of creativity in a literary, musical, or other artistic endeavour."

Evidently, we're going to need a lot of inspiration to write an entire novel. Do not fear, as inspiration can come from anywhere.

Q: Where does inspiration come from?
A: Inspiration comes from

» good music (try instrumental movie scores)
» movies
» books
» Weheartit images

» quotes
» conversations you have or overhear
» experiences and memories
» the interactions you have with others
» your own past, present, and future

Honestly, if you look around you, you'll your whole whole world can function as your inspiration for novel writing.

You can make your world your inspiration.

Thank you for reading. See you next time ♡
