someone hops a train to start writing a book. Unfortunately
as one person gets on the train to write a book there are several
people who decide that it's hopeless, they'll never complete
their book and get off the train.
My hope is that you will be the one who starts
the journey of writing a book and stays on to completion. Staying
on track to write a book is not without effort and diligence;
even so you can do it with an easy road map (a system.) If you're
reading this article, I'm almost certain you'll have to change
your priorities, the times that you write and the amount that
you write. This is why writing a book is so difficult for some
because it requires you to change your priorities. Or at the
least it requires you to move your book writing project to one
of the top 3 priorities in your day.
Most of us, don't want to change, we put our
goal of writing a book at the bottom of our list and think voila,
and someday soon I'll have a book! In reality, this way it could
be years before we reach our goal.
The people who get off the train of writing
a book are most likely the ones who didn't use a roadmap for
success. They did not sit down and create a book writing plan.
You must have a plan for your book writing; if you don't then
there's no point in starting. You might be on a program that
brings you close to finishing your book but because you didn't
have a plan or a practical goal you abandon it and say it was
The road map for success in your book writing
program is to have a specific, but sensible goal. Be specific
about your book writing goal. Do not tell yourself that you
would like to write a book by the end of this year. That is
not a specific goal. You have not set a start date, you have
not set an end date and you have not stated what book you would
like to write.
specific book writing goal is stating that you are going to
start your book writing program on January 28th at 5:00 a.m.
during which time you want to complete your 156-page book '10
Ways to Stop Divorce Before It's Too Late' and it will end at
midnight on June 30. Be as precise as you can. Now you have
the beginning of the road map to start your book writing journey.
next step in this plan is to be practical. Your goals have to
consist of a goal that can be achieved. If you state that you
would like to write a book in the next few weeks working a couple
of hours a week, you are setting yourself up for failure. Not
only will you not achieve this goal but also it will cause you
to possibly give up because your plan was unrealistic.
your book writing plan with a goal that you know you will be
able to achieve if you just challenge yourself to achieve. Writing
a book in 6 weeks working at least 20 hours a week is something
you can do and you will not have to say good-bye to your family
and become a hermit to achieve it.
wait any longer; begin your book writing journey with a road
map. Start seeing yourself writing and completing a book by
your end date. Before you know it, you'll have a finished book
in your hand all because you started with a road map to guide
you to the finish line.
