INTRODUCTION TO EPISODE 46
Perhaps you've been musing over your idea for a book for years now. Maybe you've spent a couple of months writing down your ideas, or you've even attempted to write the whole thing. But something is always getting in the way. When you're supposed to be writing it, you're busy with work; when you have free time, you can't find the motivation to focus. And sometimes, you don't know what to write the next chapter about. What are you going to do? How do you get your book finally on paper?
Chandler Bolt, Founder and CEO of Self-Publishing School, joins Mike in this episode of the Advance Podcast. In a treat for all aspiring authors out here, he breaks down the common roadblocks to writing or ideating a book and turns them around to create actionable steps you could follow to rid yourself of them, starting right now. He shares how to discover what to write about, why your first draft is the most significant part of the process, the benefits of writing a book for entrepreneurs and business owners, and why your book is your weapon of authority and trust.
If you think you can never go for the massive commitment of completing a book, then this episode could be your first step to breaking free of that assumption. Tune in!
EPISODE 46 SUMMARY & HIGHLIGHTS
How do you finally start writing your book?
There are three kinds of writers among us all. One group that's still thinking about whether to write a book, another group that has published a book before and doesn't consider it complicated and a third group that wants to write a book to grow their business. To those who haven't started yet, there are three steps to follow for help:
2. The second step, or the More Writing Method, involves outlining and rough draft editing for creating a mind map.
3. The next step is the Rough Draft Phase. It is where you start writing your book in chapters, outline them one at a time, and take it from there.
How do you decide what to write about?
Discover what your passion or field of expertise is. If you’re an entrepreneur, think of the many conversations you’ve had with your customers over time. Within those would lie the idea for your book. Narrow in on an idea or two and then mind map for about 15 mins to see if it could materialize.
