The smart way to do it is to get assistance from someone who has already done it before. Our publishing agency has been in the service for ten years, and this is why we can save you from the headache of diving deep into the process on your own. If you are ready to start writing your book, then keep scrolling down.
You can write your own book in 7 easy steps, and here is how to do it in the simplest way.
It all starts with an idea and imagination. It takes the same to write a book. If you haven’t figured out one, you wouldn’t even get past the first page of your book. You should be clear about what you want to write in your book, why you feel it is important to write about it and what impact you want to create on the reader through it.
If you have accurate answers to the above-listed queries, then you are good to go. If not, then find your answers first, as it will help you to narrow down your options and simplify the process. These questions can make you wander clueless if you don’t have an idea. Keeping your purpose at the topmost priority will make the book writing process smoother and quicker for you.
The next step is to research the topic you are going to write a book about. Start by reading the popular book in that specific genre. This is the best way to learn about your target audience, their taste, and their preference in that particular niche.
After this, proceed with your market research. Use online book platforms like Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Ingram Spark to find out the most popular books in your genre and analyze their content, blurbs, writing style, number of pages, illustrations, and book covers. Make notes for things that you find in common in all of them. Now you have “what really sells” written in front of you.
Now go for step three, which is formulating an outline. The amount of content, even in the shortest book, is huge. An outline helps you to keep your material organized, so you know what comes next after writing one chapter. It serves as a blueprint for you not to get stuck or lost during the process.
Write down your plot. Decide about the beginning and end of the book and then start filling the gaps before joining the dots, listing down the conflict point separately. It will help you to organize all of them throughout the book. After completing it, make notes on your protagonist and antagonist. This will help you in character development.
As you pen all this down, mention a date in front of each chapter or section as your deadline. Remember to hold yourself accountable for it. It’s actually important; otherwise, the process is long enough to make a sane person lazy.
Here comes the part when research can help you the most. Look at the book with a similar genre and look at the word count, page count, and the number of chapters. Then, break your book plot in a similar way. This will also help you at the time of formatting it. Now you are already on the right track.
Here is some general information for you to help with.
Plan your day and whenever you are free and light-headed, choose that time to compile your thoughts and start writing. Organize a special place where you can relax, think and focus on your work for writing. It can be your room, kitchen table, or restaurant table. It helps you to commit to your book. Make two or three dedicated hours for it and set a daily target for word count to reach your goal. Remember, consistency is the key!
Compiling tons of information in a book is a LONG process. By this, we would like to emphasize the time it takes. As you pen it down, you can easily move from your subject and objectives since you are in writing inflow. So, remember to stick to your purpose. It will help you to develop characters and scenarios in the right time and manner. Otherwise, you will mess it up.
Tip: Keep reviewing your outline after completing 500 words.
Impressive vocabulary, elaborate sentences, and figurative language transform your script into a killer book, but there is a big picture you need to focus on. Sometimes, even the simplest work leaves its marks on the readers, so before finalizing anything, give it a read. You have to be sure about the content because it is your identity in front of the reader. If you don’t find it consistent, interesting, and pacing up, how will it appear to the readers? Be your own judge!
