How to Make Writing a Book Easy
If you’re ready to finally write that book you’ve been thinking about your probably wondering what the easiest way is to do it.
After all, you don’t want to create more work for yourself than needed. If you are looking for a traditional publisher, you may be wondering what books are easiest to get published. And no matter what publishing option you’re thinking of you’ll want to know what books sell best
When it comes to determining what type of books are easier to get published or which sell better, the answer may not be as straight forward as you were hoping. In all honesty, publishing any book, whether it be a children’s book or a romance novel, isn’t necessarily “easy.”
A lot of time, hard work, determination, and research go into getting a book written, published and promoted. With that said, there are several steps that you can take to make the process as quick and smooth as possible.
Here are four steps to make writing a book easy
1. Think passion not dollars
For starters, it is essential to choose a topic that you feel passionate about writing enough to fill a book. You may be thinking that this is obvious, but there are thousands of authors that struggle through the process (and some that never finish) because they chose a topic that they thought would be easy to get published or would be easy to sell lots of copies.
The truth is the “easy” will come from your passion and not from the topic.
2. Get better results
Not only will choosing a topic that you are interested in make it much easier for you to write your book, but it will also assist with getting your book published. If you have a vested interest in what you are writing about or if you are passionate about the words that you write, you are more likely to produce better results.
You are also more likely to take the time to properly proofread and edit your book, as opposed to other authors who are just hoping to make as much money and as quickly as possible.
3. Research gets you ready
Regardless of what type of book are you interested in writing, you should do a little bit of research first. As important as it is to write on a topic or great a story that you feel passionate about, it is also important to know what publishers want and what is selling well right now.
For example, did you know that mysteries are popular stories for chapter books and early adult books? Or that vegan, paleo and Keto are popular in Cooking books?
You will find helpful information like this if you take the time to research what is selling well right now. This research is easy to do online by going to Amazon or your local book store.
When you write a book that focuses on a story or topic that you have an invested passion in, as well one that focuses on a topic or a story that people are buying, your chances of getting your book published and purchased by readers increases significantly.
4. Write with ease
It is also important to note the ease of writing. When you know what you should write about, in addition to what you want to write about, the words will flow off of your fingers in no time at all.
When you’re in these beginning stages of writing your book remember to think of what you are passionate about, what publishers are publishing and what readers are buying before you type that first word.
If you can find a balance of each of these things writing your book just might seem easy.
