From Document To A Fiction Book.

Post by Denv12 »

While I've been writing one book a non fiction book I got inspired by a thought when someone said to me,"You never know when a document will turn into a book".Since then I continue typing up ideas then add to them at times.Then I started writing a document about a fictional character and his life and loves.I guess its romance type novel.I add to it whenever I get ideas.I want to avoid it sounding like a primary school kid at Disneyland.You know the school holiday trip..."we did this,we did that,we went on this ride,we bought food,etc". How do you write in such away that everything sounds like what other guys would like to achieve? His life,his women,his home,his lifestyle,his work,hobbies,pets,cars,etc. I'm not feeling real inspired with it.Just need some suggestions. Thanks.

Here is my opinion and tips that I really like to share for u.
• Get an alarm with a long snooze function and set it early. Shallow-sleep dreams have been the source of many of my best ideas (sadly, small children are no respecters of prospective genius).
• The best ideas are tested by their peaks and troughs. One truly great image or scene astride a broken mess is more intriguing than a hundred well-made cliches.
• Once you have an idea, scrutinise the precedent. If no one has explored it before in any form then you're 99% likely to be making a mistake. But that 1% risk is why we do it.
• Make sure you are asking a question that is addressed both to the world around you and the world within you. It's the only way to keep going when the doubt sets in.
• I always try to reshape my ideas in other forms: dance, soap opera, Olympic competition, children's games, music, drama, pornography – anything that will keep turning them for possibilities.
• I prepare less and less as I get older, and try to lose my script in the first few days. In the collaborative arts, the more open you are to shared inspiration, the richer the work. Or maybe I'm just getting lazy.
• An idea is just a map. The ultimate landscape is only discovered when it's under foot, so don't get too bogged down in its validity.
• Love the effect over its cause.
