How to gain reputation as a writer.
On my offline career as a young writer they said that I was successful. What was that success?
I wrote my first book when I was 16. It was an introduction to astronomy and cosmology for my friends (The exact title was “Creation, evolution and death of our Universe”. Somehow ambitious I confess!). When I printed and published it (with my parents paying of course!) I came up with something that I would never predict. Some people read it, they liked it and mouth-to-mouth many learned about my book and I ended giving teenage-lectures about my project to the high schools of my town. Not something bad for a teenage guy, just starting his writing career!
The second book I wrote when I 18, was a study between the scientific thinking and the Theology of Eastern Orthodox Church. (Exact title: “The scientific thinking in the Orthodox Paterical Theology”). Instead of publishing it, I submitted it to my university (to Faculty of Physics to be precise). It was given the mark of Excellent and many teachers either asked to read the book or to discuss with me the ideas I exposed.
Did you saw the two methods of success my fellow writer? The first – which I learned at my 16 – is to write such a good thing, so as to be known mouth-to-mouth. Believe me it was so good for my self-esteem to give lectures at schools, presenting my own work.The other is to have your work read by the proper people. They will judge – and improve you – and they will open you the door to success.
Good luck co-writer!
My best thoughts are with you!
