How to Go From Writing Articles to Books

 Here are some tips for writing a book:

  • Break it into pieces.  Start with an outline of the major topic and break it into small sections.  Keep breaking the smaller sections into writeable areas.
  • Do not try and write the book in a day.  Set realistic goals that align with your allowable time to focus. 
  • Find out what kind of writer you are.  Some spend a little bit of time writing while others work better when they can dedicate several hours to allow the flow of thought. 
  • If writing articles is easier, start by write several articles on the same topic and then combine them. 
  • Focus on what type of book you want to write.  Is it a self help guide? Is it a fiction novel? Is it an autobiography?  Make sure that you understand what you want to write and stay focused on that theme.  
  • If it is nonfiction or self help, add personal experiences to your book or guide.  It adds personality and others can relate better if it’s real rather than researched.
  • Save the preface, introductory remarks and concluding paragraphs for last.  It makes it easier to think of these areas once you have the content established.
  • Do not stop.  It’s easy to get caught up in other things, but learn to finish a project once you start it.  If you feel burdened or frustrated take a break, but go back to it.

Happy Publishing.
