This is my third time doing the A-Z blogging challenge. Both the times I did random posts from A-Z. And in 2015, I did it on two blogs.
This time though, I am planning to follow a theme.
I believe that as writers, we need to learn something new every day. We grow with every word that we write.
We need pointers to guide us in the path that we tread. We need a clear idea as to how to accomplish what we are aiming at.
Many of us lose confidence midway because we face multiple hurdles in our path.
One of the major hindrances in the path of writing a novel is that many don’t have a clear idea about how to put together a 60K-80K plus manuscript.
We all can write a short story.
But writing a novel often feels like an uphill task.
There are many aspects that help us to easily put together a good novel.
I wish to inspire aspiring writers to go on this very interesting journey of discovering the various aspects of novel writing with me.
I am sure by now you would have guessed what my theme is, still here you go. My theme is:
A-Z Journey of Writing a Novel explained with examples from Literature
Daily, I will focus on one essential element of novel writing with the help of letters of the English alphabet. I would mention other important aspects as well for each letter.
Why this theme?
I am a published writer, with an Amazon best-seller novel and a few anthologies to my credit. I took a Master’s Degree in English literature for the sheer love of it though I am qualified and worked as a Civil Engineer for more than a decade.
My second novel is in the process of getting published and I am a few chapters into my third novel.
(Another incomplete manuscript lies unattended in my word folder since last year)
So, this theme is very close to my heart. I love writing fiction. Yet, I consider myself a beginner.
