you dream of a book with your name on it as author? You're not
alone, if you do. Researchers say 81% of us have a book dream
hidden in our heart. Yet many never accomplish this lofty goal,
leaving only a select portion that go on to write a saleable
If you're anything like I was, you sincerely want to write
your book but lack the focus and know-how to bring it to fruition.
For years, I stumbled around this secret (I'm about to share
with you) with little results. I used the stop and start system
that didn't work. You know the system of getting excited, starting
your book, telling everyone you know that you're writing it
and then life happens. You lose focus and stop writing the book.
The manuscript goes into a drawer along with your high hopes
and dreams of becoming an author. It's probably no news to you
but that system never helped me reach my goal of a completed
manuscript. Then one powerful day, I discovered how to write
a book in 100 days or less. I set a goal (not the 100 day goal
that came later.) But I set a goal, accomplished it and never
could choose the 30 day, 48 day, 90 or 100 day goal. Whatever
works for you will do. In my book camps, I recommend the 100
day goal, for most of my students say it doesn't feel too rushed.
Even so, we have developed camps for the six
week time frame and the ultimate success track of two day
Set your goal; then join the elite group of aspiring authors
that write their book to completion in a few short weeks. Here's
a few tips that will help you feel the power, get started and
reach your goal of a completed successful, saleable book manuscript
in 100 days or less.
Develop a plan. Remember, rarely anyone reaches a goal
without a plan. This statement is trite but true; failure to
plan is equivalent to planning to fail. Develop a plan for how
you are going to complete your book in the following weeks.
If you've never written a book before, get a plan from someone
who's been where you want to go. Sign up for a book writing
course or hire a book coach. Your plan is your roadmap to success
2. Make a commitment. Prepare your mindset.
Do a reality check. Don't believe those who say you can write
a book with little or no effort. If that were true, everyone
would be accomplishing it, right. It's a doable goal but it's
going to take some work, maybe even hard work and commitment
on your part. Write your commitment down on paper. I've found
nothing crystallizes your intentions better than writing them
down. Make a written commitment and watch the will and determination
to finish follow your action.
3. Prioritize your book project.
Take it off the back burner. Move your book's completion into
your top 3 priorities. Set up a regular time schedule to write.
Keep your commitment and allow the cumulative effect (doing
a little bit at a time) to build. Even so, unless you want it
to take years to write, you must schedule 15-20 hours writing
time each week. For example, you could write 2 pages in an hour
a day and have a short book in weeks.
4. Avoid over checking progress. An important
key to achieving your book within the 100 day goal is to not
focus on the results while you are working. It's kind of like
when one is trying to lose weight and always checking the scales.
It works against your momentum. Just keep writing each day of
your schedule until the 100 days is up or you finish. This way
there is less chance for a break in your momentum as you see
how close or how far you are from your goal.
5. Stop taking breaks too early. Don't be so
easy on yourself. As soon as one sees progress there is a natural
tendency to relax. We want to put our feet up and take a break.
No, don't do that. Your goal is not achieved yet. After the
100 days is up and your book manuscript is complete, treat yourself.
Take a few days off; celebrate. Then you can start your next
100 day project.
put it off any more. Take your dream off the shelf. If you wait,
you can be this time next year without making your dream of
writing a successful book come true. You have the plan, the
knowledge and the solution. Now write it all down. Your audience
is waiting. Use the power of a 100 day goal and write your successful
book. Make it different. Make it count. Make it yours.
