One of the most important things in life is to have a say in it. If you’re one of those independent and strong-willed people who love to have an opinion of your own, you’d definitely have striking words to storm our minds with. Speaking of which, if the said words are in the form of a blog, perhaps then you might as well earn a name with your words rather than having it up on the web among the million other sites where it might just be doomed to remain invisible for the rest of its life. If you’re up for it, scroll down and discover some amazingly constructive tips which will talk you into transforming your blog into an entire book!
Pick a Genre
A genre is an important aspect of your book. It gives your book a strong base to stand on. One feature that classical literature owes its immense popularity to is its well-developed sense of genre. In order to know what to write on, you need to know what category your writing falls into, for instance, romance, fiction, horror, mystery, suspense, historical fiction or non-fiction. This is something that gained ancient literature the recognition it now receives. May it be the blissful romance of Twelfth Night or the tragic story of Macbeth, after getting acquainted with the diction, style and language of the plays, we have no doubts about what exactly the English Playwright was famous for! Your genre is, thus, an indispensable element of your book and something that speaks volumes about how well you know your text.
Give a Unique Outlook to your Book
Most bloggers are intensely roguish while others are specifically niched. The rogues are not afraid to go against the rules and they write at what they call their ‘will’. If they write about leather jackets today, who knows they’ll end up editing a piece on ‘Ice Skating Guidelines’ tomorrow! If you’re one of the Rogues, that might work against you if you’re planning to transform the roguishly written text into a book that demands systematic cohesion. Since it’s very crucial to remain focused on your ideas, you need to build a strong theme and a center point around which your book revolves.
Talk About a Content Plan
A project without a mind map lacks coherence and proper planning. An important step is to draft a plan that covers all important points that you want to be in your book. Jot down the important ideas that need to be formed into chapters or sub topics in your book; the ones that you are confident will generate good market. Don’t confuse these points with all the content that is already published your site- these may or may not be the ones you’re really looking for.
Check Web for Similar Ideas
Double check your content plan with other sites to ensure you’ve delete all monotonous ideas before getting your book out. A useful tip to produce content worth marketing for will perhaps ask you to adopt different and unique ideas and give them a completely unorthodox twist so as to attract a good audience.
DIG your Blog for the Pieces that Best Fit your Book Idea
If your blog already has something that you know will make your book come across as the ultimate master of the idea, then you might as well pick out those engaging pieces and shortlist them for your best seller.
A plus point of this exercise is that you get to know just how much more content you need to come up with, what other content ideas need to be covered and what else in line for rectification. This activity is useful when it comes to creating your manuscript.
Fill up the Missing Pages
Once you have your manuscript at hand, you’re probably more confident than ever. This is when you know you’re just an edit away from your book! Although this is the stage that you feel you’re in close proximity to your book, you might not even remotely be there. This is because there is bound to be a whole lot of missing text that you need to fill up to get a decent word count for your manuscript.
Design your Book Cover
One of the most engaging projects of your Book Publishing journey is the cover of your book. But this isn’t something that is in your control. If you get lucky, you might land yourself with the most artistic of designers who will end up designing you an appealing and a meaningful book cover. Oh and no matter how clichéd it sounds, they ALWAYS judge your book by its cover. So, make sure you get yourself some amazing designers who do complete justice to your words.
Edit Your Manuscript
Admit it or not, you detest editing! Editing, the least favorite of your writing journeys is in fact a very useful tool you can make thorough use of when working to get your manuscript published. A wise man once said, ‘The first draft of anything is shit’. Take Hemingway’s words and turn your literary journey into a success through rigorous checking of your work. We know you want it out as soon as you’re done writing it. But a few minutes of editing is definitely better than a lifetime of regret. Because nothing’s worse than wanting to change a word and being utterly helpless about it because your book is already published.
