From dissertation to book
If you still decide to write from dissertation to book, guides or stories, then you should accept and understand one simple fact – errors in the text will always be. This is an axiom that does not require proof. While studying at the Institute at the Physics Faculty, I often ran to the girls at the philological faculty and without even expecting it, I got carried away by lectures on the Russian language and literature. After a while, I was noticed by the professor who led these lectures, and allowed me to attend, despite the fact that I did not study there. So he told me that even he has two or three errors for every five pages of the text. But at the moment of writing the text, our imagination also works to its fullest.
When you come up with a good idea, which should be written down – focus exclusively on those pictures that draw imagination. At this moment, try to write down everything that you see, feel and think. Write on the machine, not caring about the correctness of the phrases and sentences, commas, dashes, the formulation of direct speech. And only then, when everything is written down, return to this part of the text and begin to correct mistakes, style. The writer’s brain during the writing of the text is heavily loaded, especially if it is accompanied by inspiration, and mistakes in the text and style are inevitable. But, it’s not scary, the main thing is to write down everything, and mistakes can be corrected later, from dissertation to book.
The way to deal with errors is fairly simple, and at the same time extremely tedious and boring. You write a review. Write a day, a week, a month. At some point you sit down at the computer with a firm intention to finish the next chapter, but the text is not written. Well, that’s not all gone, the mood is not right, my head hurts, spring, I want to walk, etc. In this case, you need to read what you wrote earlier. Reading the previously written text, you find in it errors – unnecessary or missing commas, incorrectly written words, sentences that are poorly perceived. The golden rule of any writer – in any incomprehensible situation read the previously written text. This helps to significantly improve the quality of the text itself, as well as get rid of errors.
