I have always wanted to have some published pieces of writing – mostly I thought of poetry – but lately I have been thinking of writing a book or a novel. I have so many ideas, and found that when brainstorming what I would write about I often tried to focus on motherhood, children and other family friendly type topics. Although I would love to write a family friend novel, my passion appears to be in romance or something that would be more of an adult label than a family friendly label.

I have always enjoyed writing, because it is my outlet. After having a bad day, an argument with a loved one or children who would not listen all day I can sit down and write, allowing my mind to become clear so I can move forward in a positive direction and start the next day off fresh. Writing is an amazing tool; it can help others, help yourself and make you money if you are good at it.

I have seen so many other bloggers who have written books as well as some of my Twitter friends. I am currently reading a couple of books from my Twitter friends, and hope to have the reviews written up for you soon. I love to support writers and I hope that once I finally have my novel written and find a publisher you will review my book on your website or blog.

It may take me years to write my book, but I hope it only takes a few months. I plan to record my thoughts when the idea is there and then listen to the audio so I can transcribe it in a Word document.

I can write a book, no problem, but promoting it, submitting it to publishers, trying to find a way to get it printed and accepted to go out for sale is where I am lost. I have been asking on Twitter but don’t get much for a response. If you are reading this and have any tips please let me know. Also, if you are looking to write a book but have no time to write it please let me know. I would love to chat while I type and get your book typed up for your faster than maybe you have time for. I work with a contract so your piece of writing work would not be stolen, besides I have morals and would never steal someone else idea or work of art anyways.

    I have the opposite problem. The publishing and promoting I have waiting but the writing just won’t come to me. I know exactly what I’m SUPPOSED to be writing, but I can’t get it started. I’m thinking of just starting in the middle and working my way to the beginning. Good luck, I can’t wait to read yours!

    Best of luck!

    Perhaps the most important thing that first time novel writers need to know is that you have to be very patient. Writing a novel isn’t a sprint; it’s more like a marathon. You say you hope that you might get it done in a few months — and maybe you will — but you should probably expect it will take a couple of years.

    As for learning more about the publishing side of things, you might start visiting the blogs of literary agents. Nathan Bransford’s blog is probably the most widely read, but there are many others who can offer you some advice and insight.

    I have been planning to write this book on multilingual parenting but so far it is still in it’s conceptual stage as I keep on getting sidetracked by work/ home and other stuff around the house.

    Must really work on it.

    First I want to say that J. M. Reep is correct. After being accepted by a publisher, if that’s the route you take, it takes about 1 year for your book to publish and be released. After that, it’s a lot of work keeping it going and promoting. BUT – it’s worth every minute of your time spent. Follow your dream and don’t give up on it.
