Essential Tips For New Writers: Keep It Simple & Find Your Tribe

tips for new writers

Recently, I had the opportunity to be interviewed on the BookTribe Podcast and we discussed some essential tips for new writers. I met the host, Erica Birtles, on Instagram and was impressed with what she has been doing for the book world.

Not only is she a dynamic podcast host, but she has also been building a community for readers and authors, called The BookTribe, a one-stop shop for all things fiction. It’s a community app that connects authors and readers through fun activities, groups, and exciting events. You can find out more about that via her website and linktree.

For the podcast, she interviews seasoned authors and literary experts to discover the secrets to writing and publishing a good book.

During my interview, we discussed various aspects of the writing process and provided valuable advice for authors. I shared my  journey into fiction writing and explained how I transitioned into providing support and guidance for other authors. 

Here are a few of the tips we delved into:

  • Surround yourself with other writers and join writing communities for support and guidance.
  • Read extensively in the genre you are writing to learn from well-written books.
  • Seek feedback from critique partners or beta readers to improve your writing.
  • Do thorough research and consult experts when writing about diverse characters or unfamiliar topics.
  • Focus on continuous learning and find mentors who resonate with you.

We also talked about common mistakes, developing a positive mindset, balancing writing with lifestyle, tools for writers, authentic representation of diverse characters, and much more.
