I don't know if anyone has ever said this or even heard this before, but I'm here to tell you...There is NO right way to write a book. I know there will be many people out there who beg to differ. Many of you may even say that "she's only ever written one book, so what could she know," right?! WRONG! I've WRITTEN many books, but have only just taken the initiative to publish them. So contrary to popular opinion, I have some knowledge of writing and I stand by what I previously stated. There is NO right way to write a book! Many people would say that you have to have a beginning, a middle and an end. I laugh at that. I believe your story could have a beginning, a middle, a short intermission, a few cliffhangers and maybe sprinkle a few razzle dazzles of pure nonsense to throw your readers into a frenzy. Listen, when you read a book, the point is to immerse yourself into another world, become the character, maybe even learn something new. As a writer it is our job to use our creativity to give the reader that opportunity. If every writer wrote in the same manner, we would lose our originality, lose our readers and ultimately lose ourselves. My point here is this, whatever way you decide to write your book, let your audience guide you, not "Writing for Dummies." Tell your story! Tell your story so good that YOU lose yourself in it. Make sure that somewhere within that beginning, middle and end, there's A LOT of razzle dazzle to leave your readers in a frenzy. BE COURAGEOUS, BE SPONTANEOUS, BE WILD!
