Stephen King’s

On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft

I hear this is the bible for writers trying to become an author. Although it is written from Stephen King, it is not about horror but how to write properly and how he does it. Take the time and give it a read some day.

On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft by Stephen King

  • Published in October 3, 2000
  • Is a memoir of the author’s experiences as a writer
  • Serves as a guide book for those who choose to enter the craft.

Awards:

  • International Horror Guild Award
  • Bram Stoker Award for Best Non-Fiction

What is NaNoWriMo anyways?

NaNoWriMo is free to join. What you do at NaNoWriMo is that you write a novel in 30 days or try to at least. No editing your work, just write. The Goal is to get 50,000 words in a month. Wow 50,000 words is a lot. That overwhelmed me as well but since I am giving writing a try, I took on the challenge too. I first heard of NaNoWriMo from a writers workshop in Fort St. John, BC. They nagged and nagged me to join. So I looked around to see if it would help me. They told me to use Scrivener, but I do everything on my own so I don’t need that program. You do the 50,000 in small bits at a time. The scale is so small that you can write as much or as little as you like. Could be for an hour a day to the full day if you please. The standard is 1,667 words a day but that is exactly 50,000 words. For one page is 250 words, so that is about 6-7 pages. You can donate if you want to but it is not required. They have a forums to help both new writers and experienced writers out. They keep you informed what is modern and what is popular. Depending on your book type theme there is always someone there to help you with your ‘Writers Block’. They can give you ideas that you have never thought of so you can keep writing.

99 Designs

This Post is Directed for Authors getting ready to Publish.

If you are an Author. You have typed many hours and now your book is done. Well, not quite, you may need a Book Cover or some illustrations first. Have a good talk with your editor / publisher first before doing this next step. If you need any Illustrations of any kind, this post is for you. Who knows you may be close to be done or just inquiring about this post. If your not good with art or needing assistance with a Book Cover Layout. You will need a Book Cover sooner or later. In a recent writing workshop I took for writing. They told me about this website. If you want your Book Cover to look Professional and look Appealing to yourself and the customer.

People at 99 Designs have hundreds of Illustrators / Professional Designers. They don’t get paid until you like their design. All packages come with a 100% money-back guarantee and full copyright ownership of the final design. The more detailed your description is, the more detailed the image will be. With that said sometimes less is more but that is up to the author. Everything thing is copyrighted to the buyer. If you really like their work you can even hire them for your next 3 books lets say for an example. Staying in touch with the Illustrator that you picked will build friendship and loyalty both ways. They may be willing to work under your terms. You do not have to worry about royalties because you paid for the image. If you want to make t-shirts or products other than what was ordered please refer to the conditions or talk to the Illustrators limitations.Who knows there may be nothing but giving them recognition. To an artist or graphic designer word of mouth means the world to them. It feeds their families and more you give out their name more they will help you out in the end. So it pays to advertise for your Illustrator any way possible.

Cover your ass and understand what your are getting yourself into, when hiring someone. I do not know much about hiring the Illustrator for using your paid design for other purposes. I can draw very well and do my own Book Designs. I will be using 99 Designs for some of my books just because I cannot draw certain things and will ask the same questions for the Book Series. At 99 Designs, they do more then just Book Cover Designs. Don’t let the Pricing fool you. Depending on how detailed your information is better the design will be.
