Guest post by Nicole Weaver, author of 'Not All Americans Are Racist'
Writing is fun. I have learned the best way to get better at writing is for you to read a ton of books, and to write every day. As for ideas, I live life and the ideas come to me. I usually write the thoughts that come my way in the note section of my phone. I know it is a good idea, if the words flow easily from my mind. When I sit down to write a manuscript I can usually tell right away if I have enough to actually write an entire book, for instance, when I started writing Not All Americans Are Racist, I was able to write 1,500 words in one hour. The thoughts kept coming and I continued to write until I was done. The same is true for my next book. I have already written 10,000 words. I got the idea while driving to work and that night I sat down and wrote a couple chapters.
