Writing a Book - The 5 Step Method Writing a novel is never exactly easy. No matter how you approach it, a great deal of time and commitment is required. Nevertheless, seeing a book through to completion need not be a grueling, laborious task. If you approach the process with a thought-out plan it, it can actually be enjoyable. When I began writing my first book a decade ago, I was overwhelmed. This principle applies to any mammoth task, including writing a novel. 1. Although this is the shortest step, it is also the most crucial. Example: An inexperienced Hobbit inherits a magic ring, and must journey to a far away land to destroy it.

Fortunately, I wasn’t the first web-developer, who was trying to find such fonts.
