How to Know What You Don't Know


How can we find out what we need to learn in order to succeed?

The fact is, it's a process. When it comes to writing a book, there are many things to know about creating a novel and getting published. Authors have to become proficient in telling an engaging story, the rules for writing, (show don't tell, don't shift point of view...), contacting agents and publishers, marketing, and more.

Here's what I found helped me learn what I needed to know about writing a book;
-be open to learning and accept criticism
-search and do research online about everything from grammar to marketing
-read about how others achieved this goal
-work with professionals in the industry, (for example editors and other writers)

This information is very general but if you have any questions or would like me to write about something in more depth, let me know!
