You have an idea for a book. Now What? Let's explore what it takes to write a book. Keep in mind that there are many different ways to begin writing a book and there have been many books written on the subject. So if my article hits home in even a little way. . . research what's out there for more information and start today. . . following your dream!

Here are a few beginning tips to writing your book:

1. What are your strengths, creating, developing, writing, editing, or slaes and marketing. Take your best strength and begin there and figure out how to get the rest done through other vendor services.

2. Pick the type of book you'll write:

-Non-fiction: how to books, self improvement, hobbies, psychology, coaching, tips

-Fiction: mystery, who-done-it, fantasy, science fiction, romance

3. Pick a subject that is interesting to you, something that others will be interested in learning more about and make it tightly focused for best results. Maybe you have a business service you want to promote or a new profession you are learning about and want to share the knowledge you are learning.

4. Create an outline of frequently asked or interesting questions. This becomes your table of contents that you'll write into.

5. Start collecting all types of information that relates to your outlined points. One of the best ways I've used is to create a three ring binder with divider pages that have pockets or use plastic sleeves and start organizing your clippings or notes you take as thoughts come to you.

6. Now determine if you are going to be the one to do the actual writing or are you going to hire an assistant. This is the first step for creating your final manuscript. Whether you are the one who will do the writing, or someone else, start that process once you have gathered enough research to fill a chapter. Don't worry yet about writing in sequence unless this is important to you, the flow paragraphs can come at a later version.

These are just a few beginning tips to get you started. While you are in this creation mode, be sure to keep an eye out for possible titles and subtitle opportunities as well as design elements you like that other authors have taken advantage of. . . these are all input you can relate to your book cover designer when the time comes to design your book.

AND if you want to discuss your project with a professional Book Designer concerning how to's about self publishing, book design, title development, interiors or general consulting on PR and promotion. . . .
