“How do I write my ebook?” is a common question I hear regularly from people who want to get involved in ebook writing. There is no easy answer, but it is a simple process.Figure out what you want to write about in your ebook. Look closely at your previous experiences, both personal and business, and at what you have a passion for. When times get tough and you feel like you have been writing forever, it will be much more enjoyable if you have a passion for your topic.
Do your research and find out what people are looking for. There are millions of searches done every day and you want to find out exactly what people are searching for that is related to your topic. Sometimes you can make some small changes and end up connecting with hundreds or even thousands of people who are interested in learning more about your topic. Words that we use to describe our products, services or areas of expertise are usually slightly different from what the masses of internet users are using to find the exact information we are knowledgeable about.
Now that you know what you will write about, make an outline. You are looking for the main ideas that will become your chapter headings. Rework your outline as many times as necessary in order to have a clear vision of what each chapter in your book will contain.
Use time management to make sure you have enough time to write each day. If you are more creative and alert first thing in the morning, use that time to write. Do whatever you have to do to allow yourself to write. Turn off your television and tell people in your life that you are involved with an important project that will take some of your time each day.
Find a mentor to guide you through the process. We all perform better when we are mentored by someone who has gone through the writing process many times. This will help to alleviate some of the difficulties that writers encounter when they write their first ebook.
