The Process of Writing A Book
By Cheval John
I had made a commitment that 2014 was going to be a break out year.
Along the way, I had a strong desire to write a book because it was a worthy challenge.
I can see why that is.
According to a New York Times article by Joseph Epstein, 81% of Americans dream of writing a book.
Only a few fulfill their book writing goals and I wanted to be among them.
So I made a commitment to Suitcase Entrepreneur, Natalie Sisson in her workshop that I was going to have a book written by the summer of 2014.
I was able to fulfill my promise and released the book, “8 Things You Need To Do Before Quitting Your Job” in April of this year.
Though it was a huge accomplishment to become an author, the book did not do well because I failed to do a book launch and market the book.
I even got a brutal feedback by a publicist who said that the book was not ready for prime time.
To make sure that I do not experience that failure again, I decided to take part in Nina Amir’s “Write NonFiction In November Challenge.”
A person who takes part in the challenge will have to blog their manuscript of their book and get it finished by November 30th.
Though I am a couple of days late to the challenge, I can get the book done because I have already written the manuscript on paper called, “8 Lessons Every Podcaster Needs To Learn.”
I will be starting the challenge tomorrow with the introduction of the book and you will be seeing “chapters” every Thursday, Friday and Saturday in addition to the posts relating to sports and travel.
I feel that it will be fun to let the readers see the process of writing a book and also leave their feedback on the book.
Have you ever thought about writing a book?
