Indie writing – Crafting Creative Fiction
Where to raise the curtain, Hook, Point of View, Story goal, Three Acts, Characterization, Dialogue and Marketing Head Start
Creative fiction is different from all other forms of writing. It isn’t just all about spelling and punctuation and telling a story. Readers want to escape, live vicariously through the characters in a novel, and experience places and adventures they might never have the opportunity to outside the pages of a good book. Learn how to give them what they want.
So you’ve written “The End.” Now what do you do? This step can be the difference in failure or success for the Indie Author. Go to WordWyse!
Indie Editing – Crucial Steps prior to Indie Publishing
Editing, Beta Readers, Editing, Proof Reading, Editing, Platform, Branding, and Marketing Head Start
You have completed your manuscript, now what do you need to do to be sure it’s ready for readers? The worst possible thing you can do for your work and your name is to rush to publication with an inferior product. This step may be the hardest to get through because it involves patience and lots of outside help to get that story ready for the marketplace and into the hands of readers! Traditional publishers offer readers clean, error free novels. Do not settle for less!
Now how to get the story you’ve written and edited on your computer to the formats need to create both print and eBooks ready for readers? Get help from WordWyse!

Build a strong foundation, avoid pitfalls, and profit from the knowledge of those who have gone before.

Founded as a service oriented, not-for-profit company, the heart of WordWyse is to help those independently published or Indie Authors. Indeed, a rare breed because though many folks think about writing a book, only a very few actually get around to accomplishing that feat, and even fewer to achieve being an Indie published success. So, kudos and congratulations are due to each and every one of you. Our hope is to assist you on your road to success.
