You might think that writing and publishing an eBook is a difficult process but it’s not. In fact, the journey to becoming a published author can be fun and enjoyable if you know what to do. Here’s how to get started…

Week 1 - Determine the Goal for Your Book 11 Lessons

What you want to accomplish?

Before you write a single word or start researching your topic.

Choose your Topic

Once you know what you want to achieve with your book, it’s time to get ready to create it. This part trips up many people. You have dozens of ideas until you sit down to write then it feels like they all evaporate at once.

How to outline your content?

Once you’ve finished your research, you’ll probably have dozens or even hundreds of ideas.

Sources for Inspiration

It’s not unusual to get stuck during in the outline or mind mapping phases of your book. This happens because you’ve exhausted your own idea well. Fortunately, you can refill this well at any time. Here are a few techniques to help you with that…

Podcasts

If you prefer audio to text, you don’t have to be stuck using tools like Google Books.

Social Groups

When it comes to getting new ideas, you don’t have to lean into meaty resources.

News and Journalism

Sometimes, looking at your topic in a new way can be exactly what you need to give you fresh eyes for your outline.

News and Journalism Videos

Videos can be another great source of inspiration when you’re not sure what else to put in your outline.

Surveys

If you’re stumped with your outline and you already have access to a large audience like a big mailing list or a huge blog following, use that to your advantage.

You might be tempted to skip the research week.

Method 4 - Dictate Your Content

Method 5 - Write It Out

Brain-dumping is like a first draft with no formatting or punctuation.  It helps you to get everything on paper so the process or refining can begin. 

Method 6 – Hire a Ghostwriter

Don't think you have to write it all.  Some of the best writers and politicians in the world use a ghostwriter.

Method 7 - Partner with Someone Else

A writing buddy can be the one thing that hold you accountable to writing regularly.
