Author of ‘The Secret’, Katerina Diamond shares her writing tips for aspiring authors. Write all the time, for ten minutes or ten hours it doesn’t matter. Also read books on story structure and things like that, there are some excellent books out there and they can really help.
Stamina, without a doubt. You can have all the writing advice and classes you want but they’re worth nothing if you haven’t got the discipline and stamina to sit down and actually write day after day after day until finally you’ve got a book.
I’m wary of offering advice because every writer has a different approach and a different set of rules, but the one thing I would suggest is quite simply –to read. Read as much as you can in as many genres as you can. Read fact, fiction, history, biography, the classics, children’s etc. Eventually, you’ll find the one that appeals to you most.
Dialogue. Dialogue makes the world go round, or at least a book come to life. I believe there should be lots of it and it should feel natural, so that’s what I’d recommend nailing.
