Another key about writing a novel is pace. Rome was not built in a day, and an author can not expect the novel to be written in a short time period as well. That said, the author may have deadlines to meet and can not take his or her time. The key is going at a pace that the author is comfortable with. This helps with the overall flow of the work. If the piece seems rushed, the author leaves out details and loses some important details in the stories plot, which could be crucial.
The final part of writing a book is the publishing. This is where the author takes his or her work, and sends it to an editor. The Editor then checks the book for any errors such as spelling, grammatical errors, and any other minor things that could be missing. After this step, the manuscript is sent to a publishing company such as Scholastic. After writing, this is the longest step in the process. The publisher may feel as if the author needs to develop the book better. They may see errors with the story or find that the storyline simply is not good or does not make sense. There are a plethora of reasons a novel can be denied. What happens next? Well the author tries again. Many great publication companies have denied a work multiple times by the same author. Veronica Roth, the author of the Divergent series, had her work denied over 40 times before her now best selling book was realised. That may sound like a lot of resubmitting, but many authors have sent in their works many more times than that. It is becoming easier to self publish due to the internet though. Amazon for instance allows you to purchase an ISBN number and publish your work online. There are pros and cons to this though. For instance, even though the work is technically published, that is not enough. Most likely the author is looking to sell their work. Unless they have the money or resources to get the novel noticed, it is very hard for an individual's work to gain recognition. Another downfall with self publication is the fact that you either only have a digital library without any paperback or hardback versions of the book,. This means the book will not be sold at major retailers who don't have an immersive online book store. This can also limit the amount the author sells.
Making a screenplay, or movie, is a different animal though. The director, the studio, and the producer must come together and agree on what they will make a movie about. At first the process of writing a screenplay and a novel appear the same. They must come up with an antagonist, a protagonist, supporting characters , a plot, and settings for the movie. Generally though, the screenplay for the movie is shorter than a novel.
The director must first find a producer, or someone willing to fund the movie. The producer is responsible for providing the money for the movie’s production. He or she pays the bills so to speak, including paying the cast members and getting the movie onto the big screen.
After the producer is hired,...
