Writing your first novel - How I did it!

Updated: Jan 21

Writing my first novel was the easiest bit. Editing and proofreading over and over again was the hardest part of the process.


When I decided to write my first novel back in 2005, It took me a few years to complete and eventually I managed to complete the story in 2009. My book remained on my computer for nearly 12 years before I looked at it again during the first lockdown in March 2020. But my question was? What should I do with it now.

Was my story good enough to print?

Who can edit it for me?

Who will proofread it?

Would anyone want to read my book?

How do I get it published?


These were questions I couldn't answer, because I really did not know.


Spending days googling the questions, it was a minefield out there, with people saying different things and although some of the advice was good, the majority of what I was reading confused the hell out of me. So my question was, who was right and who was wrong?


Follow me and I will take you through my journey and believe me, if I can write, edit and proofread my own book ready to self publish, then anyone can do it if you just believe in yourself.
