Sorry about the title but I couldn’t think of a more descriptive way of describing what I want to do.
I am in the very early stages of planning a novel I have called ‘The Impact of History’ which is part historical, part thriller and part …well you’ll have to wait and see.
The non-fiction book that I will be blogging as I write will run concurrently with the novel and will use the novel for its examples and screenshots to illustrate the various sections of the book. I’m a little stuck on what to call it as I feel it is a different approach to the normal ‘how to write a novel’ books. For the moment I’ll call it ‘From the beginning to The End’.
I want to go through the entire process that I use, from the idea to the finished product and beyond to the marketing and promotion of the book. Each part of the process will be chapter length and offer idea’s, screenshots of my work in progress and a look at the resources on offer to make the writing process as streamlined and uncluttered as possible.
The first section is on the origin of your work of fiction and how you can develope a simple idea into a strong multi-faceted novel. This project will begin next Monday and I will post each week on my progress on both books and share where I’m up to and how the process is going. I look forward to sharing this experiment with you.

Commerce produces a veritable blizzard of content— reports, mailshots, brochure, leaflets, advertising copy and web content. It has to be as perfect as possible.

Products and services beautifully photographed or illustrated, engaging content to lure us in and stimulate our acquisitive natures; we are bombarded with it every hour of every day. It has to be as perfect as possible.

The millions of words that are created, written and used by the corporate world, every minute of every day often miss a vital step in their journey from conception to publication — editing and proofreading.
