3 Things I Wish Someone Told Me

Before we get started, I want to let you know that ROAD TO GRIMPAITRA is available! You can read the first 3 chapters today and order the e-book or paperback on AmazonGoogle Play, or Books2Read.

Often times we begin projects and get so far in that we can’t find a way out or a solution. I’m going to go over 3 things I wish someone told me before becoming a published author.

  1. Read your book in other formats.
    This would have helped a lot when reading Road to Grimpaitra. It gives you a fresh set of eyes so you can see things you can’t see in one format. So if you write you manuscript on paper, read it digitally and vice versa. For my current project, I will be printing it. I noticed that after gettings prints of RTG, I spotted things a lot easier.

  2. Those filter words.
    I didn’t know about filler words really. I learned about them more recently, but I realized that most of the time they aren’t needed. You think they are, by try removing them and then coming back. Filler words are words like: that, look, but, so, walk, glance, eye, hand, etc.
  3. Pace.
    I’m notorious for not taking my time and it would have helped a lot when editing RTG if I just did it write the first time. Slow the pace by showing not telling during emotional scenes and speed up the pace by telling not showing during action scenes.

This is a fairly short blog and I hope you learned something to help you!
