I set out to write a book at the beginning of the year. It’s something that I’ve wanted to do for some time now. The problem was…. where would I start? What topic will I discuss? What population would I target? After 40 days of gathering information, my early concerns have all but gone.
I simply started where I have a passion…the thoughts of key influencers under the age of 40. There is so much potential in my generation I wanted to share what I’ve discovered (and discovering) with the world.
Here are a few tips that I’ve discovered:
1. Start writing and gathering information. That’s it…just start.
2. Set a target date for completion….this will keep you from wondering aimlessly.
3. Be consistent-period.
4. Stay focused on your book. There are thousands of books already in print and digital format. Pursue your God-given idea with diligence.
5. Visit your local bookstore to get ideas about formatting. Holding other written works will ignite what’s in you. Gather other ideas from writers before you. Remember to glean, but avoid copyright infringements.
