    Getting It Written: Tips For The Aspiring, Busy, Novelist

    by Bob Pierce


    Bob Pierce is an artist, author and designer living in northern Vermont with his wife and cantankerous conure. He teaches seminars on publishing and does layout and design for novels and magazines. His mother’s rich Irish heritage and his own passion for history have inspired his writing in all of his novels, especially his latest release, Ascention, The Fight for the Throne of Éirin, which, along with all of his titles, is available on Amazon.com, Kindle and bookstores everywhere.


    I’ve been a writer for a number of years. To date, I have published six action-adventure novels (The Dakota Chronicles, Extant Eternal, The Journals of Elijah Browne, etc.) and have had the pleasure of interacting with a number of my readers, many of which are aspiring writers themselves who ask me how in the world I find the time. My simple response to them is that one does not “find” the time, one has to “make” the time and so from that has grown a series of seminars that I and a partner and fellow author have given to help writers to get their projects completed.

    The first part of the seminars gives tips on how to get a project organized, how to progress through the process of writing with the goal of a completed and ready-to-publish manuscript. With over thirty years of experience in the printing and publishing industry, I am able to equip them with the tools they need to put together a professional finished product.

    First of all, you need to determine if your idea is even worth pursuing. Is it original enough? Will anyone besides your relatives and closest friends be interested in buying it? In my seminars, I teach that a good novel, fiction or nonfiction, needs to have a logical, contiguous story arc. Any good book, like any good movie, needs three elements: A good story, told well, with a clear message. Everything in the book needs to contribute to that story arc in one way or another.

    If the story idea that you’ve come up with does not seem like a good one, don’t totally discard it. Scribble down some notes (if you haven’t already) and put them somewhere to refer to later. As you strike upon that golden idea, you may find that some of the other ideas that you’d come up with will make great sub-plots or red herrings for your characters. Again, just be sure that whatever you weave into the story advances it and doesn’t lead your readers down any irrevocable bunny trails.

    The next step is research. I am a stickler for accuracy and since most of my novels involve an element of historical foundation, I have to be sure to be precise. In my writing room is a fairly extensive personal library that I refer to, but often my story ideas take me to places that my library does not go so I need to turn to other sources. The easiest is, of course, the internet. But as I warn my seminar attendees, you’ve got to verify everything, especially from open-sources like Wikipedia. Corroborate any information you find and take advantage of sites like Snopes.com to check the veracity of what you find.

    Your own personal knowledge is the best source, of course. There is an old writers’ adage that says “write what you know” and this is sage advice. Set your stories in places where you have some familiarity. I’ve also found that interviewing someone who has “been there” is priceless. For my book Branagan, I spent some time with a retired police officer who gave me a wealth of insight into the practices and policies and the changing times in which my story is based.

    As you prepare to write about a cadre of people that you’ve never known or, perhaps, have just made up, you need to know them intimately. Members of my writers’ group have commented to me that my characters seem so familiar, as if we all sit around the dinner table together and know one another so well. That’s the goal. You have to know everything about your characters. I usually write a short dossier for each one.

    Keeping in mind that lengthy descriptions in your story and long, drawn out narratives are, frankly, boring, you need to advance your story through dialogue which means that your lead character needs a foil, a side-kick, someone to talk to in order to tell the story. The side-kick doesn’t have to be a lesser character, in fact, in my latest book, Ascention, the Fight for the Throne of Eirin, the lead characters have a common side-kick who is the best friend of one and later the mentor for the other; the lead characters look to him for his wisdom and insight.

    A few quick tips that I share with the folks at my seminars: Don’t over-write details, allow your readers to use their own imaginations to fill in the image of your story and your characters. Your characters’ jobs are to facilitate the story, not the other way around. Write dialogue as people naturally speak, leave out “he said, she said” as much as possible to keep the conversations flowing. Make it edgy if you like, but keep it clean; remember the adage “if you can’t be interesting without profanity then let’s face it, you’re just not that interesting.” There is always a better, more articulate way to phrase just about anything that you might fall on the crutch of profanity to express.

    The last step before getting started on the creative part is outlining. Some folks need to outline and note every detail, others just need a bare-bones list of what’s going to happen. Whatever you need to keep yourself on track, do. You want to keep the story on track and an outline can help you do that.

    One thing that you’ll have to have ready for yourself is a comfortable and stable place to work. You will not get this done in one writing session so you have to be able to get all your stuff set up and leave it set up. As the sticky-notes proliferate around your computer monitor and the stacks of research papers and books accumulate around you, you’ll see why it’s important to not have to pack it all up and then set it all up again. Nothing can kill a writing project more effectively than the inability to just sit down and work at will, when the muse strikes. So make sure that you have a good space with good lighting, music (if you so prefer), and a reasonable distance from the snacks in the kitchen.

    A writer’s tool box should include a computer, of course, as the entire publishing industry these days is digital. No longer can you submit or use hand-written or even typed manuscripts. A spell-check feature in the software you use is great, but not absolute. Have on hand a real dictionary and a thesaurus. You’ll also want to have a supply of note paper, sticky-notes and painter’s tape to post things on the walls around you so that you don’t destroy the paint when you take them down when the project is done.

    Most importantly, you’ll want to have a thumb-drive handy; dedicated to backing up your project as you progress. Avoid the heartache of losing your work with a little bit of preparation.

    So you’re ready to start work. The last thing you need is a plan; when are you going to do this. With a day-job, family, soccer practice for the kids, etc., you may be thinking that you just don’t have time. The truth is, with a little discipline on your part and cooperation from your spouse, family, etc., you can make the time by setting a fixed appointment each week during which you will sit at your computer and work at your craft. In between, you’ll be scribbling down notes and reminders to yourself because you’ll be in the “zone” of your project pretty much all the time. I spend a lot of time commuting and do so with the radio off so that I can talk to myself and work out various parts of my stories. I keep a note pad in the car and when I get home in the afternoon those notes get taped up to the wall or pinned onto the bulletin board for Friday night, my so-called “write-nite.” In a word, you will need to become a burden on your family but, eventually, they will proudly introduce you at parties as an author.

    So now you’re finally ready. On your computer you’re going to set up a folder and name it “first draft.” Then, for each chapter, each element, each separate part of the book, you will set up an individual file, save it to the folder for your first draft and then start a new file for the next. For example, you’ll have a separate file for chapter one, for chapter two, and so on, as well as for the introduction, the dedication page, the table of contents…you get the idea. As you finish each writing session, you’ll copy all of your new work onto your thumb-drive, that is something that you’ll want to become a compulsive habit.

    As you write the first draft, the first rule is: Don’t stop. Don’t stop for anything. Keep the creative juices flowing, it’s imperative that you plow through the first draft without stopping to look up things that you either forgot to research or had just come up as your mind processed the story while you were writing. Keep a note pad handy and, when that happens, flag the spot and make a note of what it is that you need to research. This just takes a moment and then press on. The first draft is the most creative part of the process; each successive draft enhances and fleshes out what you establish at this point. Don’t stop.

    When you’ve finished with your first draft, it’s time to move on to draft number two which you want to do relatively quickly while things are still fresh in your mind. Take some time first to look up the various things that you made notes about and have that information on hand as you get started. Set up a new folder, label it as the second draft, and then one-by-one, copy each chapter file from the previous folder into the new folder, open it, edit it, save it, and then repeat the process for the next chapter.

    Typically, I’ll go through three or four drafts and then I’ll take my back-up thumb-drive to the local copy shop and print out the entire book. I’ll make two copies, one for myself and one for someone to read it for me and give me feedback and notes. After so many years in this business, I have found that despite how screen-oriented our lives have become, we are still more likely to find typos, bad grammar and other things that we want to change on a paper copy. So, with a red pen in hand and a legal pad, I go through my book page by page.

    This, too, becomes my so-called “walkabout” phase. Once I’ve finished marking up my hardcopy, I take some time away from the process to work on other parts of the book. This often includes writing the dedication page, the table of contents and other front or back matter. It’s also the time, since I do all of my own design and layout work, to work on the cover and various illustrations. I’ll be building props for photos and, perhaps, work with a model and a photographer for cover and other promotional photos. A lot of time in Photoshop is spent during this time, too, but the main goal is to get my brain far away from the story-line of the book for a while so that I can come back to it with a fresh perspective as I attack the next draft.

    After another draft or two, I’m finally at the nominally-final version. I say “nominally” as this is the point when it goes to the editor to review. That’s when we find out just how finished we really are. Some publishers can be more insistent than others but you have to remember that their goal is to help you create a sellable product.

    And, finally, after the editor has had their way with your baby and you’ve made whatever adjustments may be necessary. It’s time to put a bow on it, you’ve done it: your manuscript is ready to publish.

    Everybody Writes: Your Go-To Guide to Creating Ridiculously Good Content,


    In Everybody Writes: Your Go-To Guide to Creating Ridiculously Good Content, top marketing veteran Ann Handley gives expert guidance and insight into the process and strategy of content creation, production and publishing, with actionable, how-to advice designed to get results. Because in a content-driven world, everyone is, in fact, a writer.

    “If you have a web site, you are a publisher. If you are on social media, you are in marketing. And that means that we are all relying on our words to carry our marketing messages,” explains Handley.

    Handley explores how the lessons and rules of creating good content apply across all of online assets —web pages, home page, landing pages, blogs, email, marketing offers, and on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and other social media. Handley deconstructs the strategy and delivers a practical approach to create ridiculously compelling and competent content - whether a big brand or small and solo.

    Ann discusses six different dimension of content, including:

    · How to Write Better (and How to Hate Writing Less)
    · Grammar and Usage
    · Story Rules
    · Publishing Rules (Part 4)
    · 13 Things Marketers Write
    · Content Tools

    “Our writing can make us look smart or it can make us look stupid. It can make us seem fun, or warm, or competent, or trustworthy. But it can also make us seem humdrum or discombobulated or flat-out boring,” Handley adds. “That means we’ve got to choose words well, and write with economy and the style and honest empathy for our customers. And it means you put a new value on an often-overlooked skill in content marketing: How to write, and how to tell a true story really, really well.”
