How To Write A Book Fast With A Plan!
by: Earma Brown

Write a Book Fast TipsAre you wondering how to get your book written fast? You've conquered the giant called procrastination. You've taken the time to learn about book writing. You're ready to put action to your dreams. All you need now is a plan to get it done. I have good news for you! With a personalized plan or a step by step guide, you can get organized and write your book faster than ever. Here are seven organizational plans to write a book fast.

1. Use the "Ten Chapters with Ten Points" plan. With this plan, you take the topical information that you have gathered for the book. You divide this information into ten sub-topics. You use your existing information first; then you do research to fill in any holes. Create an outline from your list of topics. Write your table of contents from your outline. Take each sub-topic, write a chapter introduction, create ten points and a summary. Then you write your front and back matter including the book's introduction. With the "Ten Chapter - Ten Point" plan, you will have at least 100 points to angle and use to sell your book.

2. Hire a ghostwriter. If you don't have the time, the know-how or the desire to write a book yourself, consider hiring a ghostwriter. Celebrities are not the only ones that can do this. Anyone from business owners to emerging solopreneneurs are passing the book writing task on to a professional writer. If this plan fits you, you might try or I don't personally endorse either of these sites. But I have heard good reports about them from others.

3. Supply a Q/A session. This guide is simple for the one who has tons of experience, credentials or degrees. You already eat, drink and live your topic. Simply, create a list of questions most frequently asked in your field. List at least ten; then answer each one in great detail. Include your stories, examples and illustrations to amplify your solutions. Make sure they are the questions your readers want to know and not just what you think they want to know. One way to find out is to ask them. For example, you could conduct a survey of a group from your audience and use the top twenty-one questions. A variation of this plan would be to interview the top gurus in your field. Put your introduction, summary and the interviews inside your book.


4. Compile top mistakes or secrets. Everyone hates making mistakes. In this plan, you can compile the top mistakes in your industry with the solutions. List at least ten to twenty-one mistakes you see being made in the day-to-day grind of your field. Write in detail the solution or the way to avoid making each mistake. Put at least a couple of mistakes you made inside your book. Most people want to hear about you being the bug on the windshield, at least sometimes. They may tune you out, if you are the windshield all the time. A variation to this plan would be to expose the top secrets in your field inside your book.

5. Turn your talking points to teaching points. If you are a stronger speaker than writer but still want a book. You can do this; turn your speech talking points into teaching points in your book. Perhaps, you conduct a poplular workshop. Have your latest and best speech or workshop recorded. Then hire a transcriptionist to transcribe your audio. Take your transcribed audio or audios and form into a book. It might not be a good read, if you take the transcription straight to print. So, create a book outline; write an introduction and summary for each chapter. Then insert the meaty parts from your audio in each chapter to form your book.

6. Use your existing body of information. Gather all related information from your files, speeches, workshops and more. List and categorize each related body. Decide the core idea to write your book on. The best idea to develop a book on is usually the same one you have the most information for. Write your one to two sentence thesis. Develop a working title from this core idea. Create a mind map outline using every thing you gathered from your existing body of information. Your core idea keywords or working book title would be in the middle. Your sub-topic keywords would be the branches extending from the middle circle. After you are satisfied with the parts of your mind map, write your book. Write in detail from each branch.

7. Implement the 100 Day Plan. First things first, make the commitment. Write out your commitment to write your book in the next 100 days. Create a writing schedule to fit within the 100 days. Decide how long your book will be. Like, my book will be ten chapters long; so I will write one chapter each week. At the end of twelve weeks (100 days) you will have a ten chapter book. You might be asking why ten instead of twelve. In my 100 days to a book plan, I instruct my students to use first week for organizing and planning. They write for ten weeks; then the last week is for proofreading, polishing and make-up writing.

Don't wait around any longer. You could be this time next year still wondering if you can write your book. Put the doubts aside. Choose one of the book writing plans above; stop waiting and start writing. Your book writing coach sends best wishes for you and your success as author.
