About once a week a would-be writer approaches me to ask for my pearls of wisdom for how to write a book. The answer is simple: start, finish, edit, rewrite, edit, share, rewrite, and stop short of being totally satisfied. (Tip: You will never be completely satisfied.)
The first step, "Start!" is the most difficult. After that the Finish step is the most difficult, followed by the edit step… you get the picture. Writing is work folks.
I stumbled upon 50 Strategies For Making Yourself Work, an article by Jerry Oltion. It offers great advice for getting the writing process started. These 50 strategies are accurate and spiced with humor.
So read (oh, yes, and apply) Jerry Oltion's advice. Surely, there is at least one of these strategies to get your book started sooner rather than later. So now you know how to write a book – easy wasn't it?
How to sell a book? First, the writing is the easy part. Need I say more?
