How To Write A Book
Writing a book can be a slow, arduous task that takes years. Or you could crank out a
book -- even your very first one -- in a matter of days. The end result is the same. You have a completed product
ready to take to market. And hopefully, if you've done your homework, your efforts will earn you income for many
months and years to come.
But if it takes you years, the payoff may seem comparatively
small for all that effort you put forth. On the other hand, there's no greater reward than using speed writing
techniques to crank out a project quickly and having it earn money indefinitely. When you write productively, you
leverage your time; you're getting the best possible return from your intentions and effort to turn words into
Find a problem in need of a solution. Problems are everywhere - you don't have to
look very far. And if by chance you don't readily notice problems yourself, strike up a conversation with anyone
and you can quickly uncover a problem or two. Keep a notebook of the problems you've noticed and that others
Hear about a problem frequently and you could be sitting on a
goldmine. Of course, it's not the problem that's going to deliver the cash payoff to you; it's the solution that
you provide. But it all begins with somebody's problem and as the great philosopher, Napoleon Hill once said "Every
adversity, every failure, every heartache carries with it the seed of an equal or greater benefit". The problem is
your starting point and the solutions you create the foundation of your book.

Once you've identified a problem in the marketplace and you're
confident that you can develop a solution, it's time to decide on your topic and the angle you're going to take.
For example, if the problem you want to take on is "arthritis" and you've identified 5 alternative remedies, you
might choose to target a specific niche with your solution. "5 Natural Ways Women Over 50 Can Beat Arthritis Every
Time" gives your book idea a direction, a focus. And if you've done your homework, you have discovered a niche
market just waiting for your kind of book to appear.
When you're considering your book's topic and focus, ask
yourself -- "What would make someone pay good money for my book?" Keep in mind that your target market's problem is
like a weight on their shoulders. It's an annoyance that often interrupts their life. Your task in writing about
the solution is to provide helpful advice that works so readers feel justified in buying your book and will gladly
recommend it to anyone they know with a similar problem.
It's important to choose the right angle from the start. No
sense in writing for days only to discover that you've missed the mark. That's why it's important to carefully
examine your book's subject. Restate the topic. Refine it further. Rewrite it a couple of different ways. Recast it
in a way that's even more compelling and you'll enjoy even greater rewards upon completion.
Now that you've got your topic and carved out a specific angle,
it's time to identify all the major subtopics you want to cover in your book. Set a timer and brainstorm non-stop
for 5 minutes. During that time, simply write or record your voice as you generate a huge list of key words,
concepts or ideas related to your main topic. The only rule is to not edit yourself and don't stop to
Whatever comes to mind, you need to capture immediately. After
this simple 5 minute exercise, you should have a bunch of ideas. Now you can go back and select those you want and
delete the ones that don't fit in with the concept of your book.
The idea of the brainstorm exercise is to generate a large
initial list. You'll undoubtedly add to it and further refine some of the ideas you've recorded. Your huge list
makes it much easier to choose the key concepts you want to discuss. From a page or two of possibilities, it should
be relatively easy to choose the top 10 - 25 subtopics. Each of these subtopics will then become a chapter on its
own, with each adding value and important detail to your book.
Next, take out a blank sheet of paper for each proposed chapter.
Write the chapter subject at the top of the page. Next, brainstorm one chapter at a time to create the basic detail
you'll write about. Write or record everything you can think of that is related to this particular chapter. Include
every keyword and concept that enters your consciousness. Once you have a list, choose the best 10 - 20 thoughts,
ideas, or concepts and place them into a logical sequence.
Do this for each of your chapter headings. Once you've done that, gather all the
sheets, including your list of main chapters, and staple them together. This is your outline or blueprint. Guard
it. Protect it. Value it. This single document is the whole key to writing a successful book fast.
The value of this chapter outlining system is that it makes writing you book so easy
that anyone could do it. You do all the heavy thinking upfront at the outline stage. Then when it's time to write,
you simply take one concept at a time write freely, unencumbered by the uncertainty that plagues many beginning
writers. Everything is mapped out for you so the actual writing of your book is pure pleasure.
Think it through. Organize your book into a logical sequence and then write it fast.
It's a guaranteed formula to book writing success.
