Read online: Are you a fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants writer? Hungry for a book that shows you how to write and revise your novel without an outline? Discover.   Put the book away for a week. (It should be two weeks, but who has two weeks?) Read as someone else. Then start reading it. But here’s the key. Read it as if you didn’t write it. I do that by pretending I’m someone else. You know how when you hit “send” to deliver a manuscript to your editor or reader? And as soon as you do, you think.

You can write a book—and more quickly than you might think, because these days you have access to more writing tools than ever. The key is to follow a proven, straightforward, step-by-step plan. My goal here is to offer you that book-writing plan.   “If you want to be a writer, you must do two things above all others: read a lot and write a lot,” he says. Read widely, and constantly work to refine and redefine your own work as you do so. 2.

  Rushing through the read only hurts you as the writer. Listeners need time to process your prose, your story, your setting, and your characters. Trying to read twenty five pages in twenty minutes will leave you with bewildered listeners and wasted opportunity. Most people can comfortably read a manuscript page a minute. That’s words a page.   Read in: 4 minutes. Favorite quote from the author: Lately, I’ve been fascinated with the metaphysics of reading and writing, for example speed reading and analytical reading. Although the title of this book suggests it’s aimed at people, who want to write literature themselves, it’s also beneficial for readers, since it can help you.
