Book Writing Tips for the Weekend Warrior
by: Earma Brown

7 Simple Ways to Promote Your Book With Your WritingAre you only able to work on your book dream on the weekend or in small blocks of time? No worries; you are a weekend warrior in book writing. Welcome to the Weekend Warrior Book Writing Club! No, you don't have to pay dues to join. You need only be a person struggling to fit book writing into a small block of time.

First think about all the benefits you are missing by not fulfilling your book dream. Let's put a time table to that thought. What would happen if you didn't get your short book written in the next 90 days? You'd miss having a book to make your business stand out in the crowd. Your business would definitely take longer to build to a whopper success.

You wouldn't have the competitive edge you'd have as an expert with a book. You'd miss out on the adventures and opportunities waiting for you on the other side of getting your book done. And worst of all, you'd miss the extra profits you could make by charging up to 400% more on your fees as author.

Now that you are properly motivated to cash in on all that you are missing by not getting your book done. Here are 5 simple strategies to get your book written using your weekends or any small blocks of time.

1. Write your book and make it easy on yourself. Remove the pressure to complete a big book. Instead choose to write a short book. Divide your monster book into 2 books. Use shorter sentences and paragraphs. Your copy is more compelling when you are succinct and to the point. Write shorter chapters; shorten your stories and examples. Make your book an easy read. If you have a fairly complex topic, spread out your stats and tables. Section your details and develop your book into several parts.

2. Write your book with an intention statement. Do you have a plan in place? Write on purpose. Don't set yourself up to fail by not planning. Even if it's a simple intention goal like "I complete my book (title of book) this year by (date and year.) I educate myself and do what it takes to complete it." Set one and write it down so you can hit the mark.

3. Write your book as a top priority. Commit to a writing schedule. Think about your priorities right now. Can you arrange to write at least 7-10 hours a week? If you have to let something go that is not high on your priority list, do it. Now is your time to succeed in writing your book. Later is not better. Set yourself up for success. Write a book this year by making your book goal a top priority.


4. Write your book the easy way to finish fast. Five of the top ways to speed write your book includes: 1.Act Now. Action will paralyze fear each and every time. 2. Avoid marathon writing. Know you don't have to become a hermit to write and complete a successful book. 3. Commit to the tracking approach. Doing a set amount –even if it's only 30 minutes to an hour- each day builds a cumulative effect. 4. Know you don't have to write chapters in order. You can jump around and fill in the blanks to gain momentum. 5. Maintain your momentum. Don't give in to writers block. Move on to work on the chapter you feel passion bubbling for at that moment.

5. Write your book using laser focus. Apply laser focus to complete your book writing project faster. For example, if you look at a 40 watt bulb, the light is soft. It's not even strong enough to light an average room sufficiently. Yet you can take the same 40 watts; put it in a laser gun and get a totally different output. In the laser gun, the same 40 watts become a focused beam of light that can cut through different objects like a sharp knife through paper. Same amount of energy but different focus. To use laser focus in your book project, prioritize, do only one project at a time and complete one project before you start another.

If you don't use these techniques to finish fast using the time you have, you may be this time next year working on the same book project. Remember to make it easier on yourself, make your book dream a top priority in your life, write an intention goal, learn to write the easy way and use laser focus. Using the above simple tips you can easily write and complete your book. Even if it's only on the weekend, finish fast; finish strong and sell sooner.
