By now, it’s no surprise that some of the most creative people are also the most self-conscious about their work.
So, what’s the secret to getting the most out of your writing?
And is there a way to make it as fun, entertaining and inspiring as possible?
In this installment of the WIRED Literary Trends series, I’ll share some of my personal tips and tricks for writing a better book.
Here are my top picks for writing the best book ever:1.
Be your own hero.
When I’m writing a story, it can be hard to be your own person.
But if you’re really trying, you’ll realize that it’s not so hard to make yourself feel like you’re the most important person in the story.
That’s a powerful way to connect with readers, even if it’s only a little bit.
It’s the first step toward being a better writer.2.
Don’t be afraid to make a joke.
Even if you don’t want to, you can still be funny.
I remember being on a plane, when the captain came on, and he said, “Well, are you all right?”
I said, Yes, and I laughed.
And I kept on laughing.
You can do this.
You’re funny, and you have to be funny, even in the face of adversity.3.
Be willing to take risks.
Don “walk the talk” about what you’re writing about.

It can help you understand how other people feel, and it can make you better at reading a topic that interests your readers.5.
It doesn’t matter what you write, but the best thing you can do is read it.
If your book has an easy-to-follow plot, or if you want to keep things as simple as possible, just keep reading.
That way, you get to know the reader better.6.
Ask yourself why you’re doing what you do.
You don’t have to give any particular reason for doing what YOU do.
If something makes you happy, just do it.
You know, even the best people get bored and frustrated when they spend their time writing.
Just ask yourself what it is that you like doing, and do it!7.
Be aware of your audience and how you can get them excited about your story.
People don’t care about the things you’re trying to say about them.
But they do care about what they see in your work.
Make sure that when you’re giving them your story, you also give them a reason to care about it!8.
Have a vision for your book.
If a book is a “vision” for your life, it means that you have an idea of what you want it to be.
You want to write about things that you love, and things that have meaning to you.
If there’s something in your story that you don
