3 WRITING TIPS FROM A FIRST-TIME AUTHOR
By Lorenzo Petruzziello – author of The Love Fool
When I moved to Rome, I had no intention of writing a novel. But being there inspired me to attempt it. I didn’t know how to approach it, I had just decided that I’d sit down and write.
I’ve learned three most important lessons on this new venture and want to share it with aspiring writers out there:
- TIME: I was fortunate enough to have all the time in the world while I was living in Rome. I was not working, but I was forced to go out and explore, learn culinary treats of Rome and meet new people. Eventually, my funds ran out… so I was forced to come back. However that free TIME allowed me to free my mind and write. So make the time. You don’t have to take 4-5 months like me, but weekends can get you started.
- WRITE: Don’t’ be concerned about what you wrote, just write it. You can fix and edit later. Get it all out. Write it out. Not bullets points. Write passages or scenes, ideas. Just write.
- REPEAT: Think of scenes or situations and repeat them in your mind over and over and over. As you repeat them, more details pop in your mind. More ideas. This is especially good while driving or on a train. Music helped me. I created a playlist soundtrack to my story. I would listen to it over and over and think about certain scenes, etc.
