Write A Good Book

Have you ever thought of writing a book - a good one?

If you have never thought of it you should seriously consider writing one. It could be your life story. This is especially so if you have gone through much hardship or adversity. Writing about it has healing effects for your self. It could be the only outlet for you if you are not disposed to counseling.

Secondly, you can earn royalties which are a form of passive income. When you write you can reach a wider audience and believe me people are interested in the nitty-gritty of other people's lives. It is essentially because of this interest that people gossip.

Thirdly, you get to leave something of yourself behind - a form of legacy. You establish yourself as an expert and build your brand name. As you write you find meaning in your life even if you did not understand it earlier.

Fourthly, you learn many new things and skills when you write and get your book published. At the same time you touch people's hearts with your life story.

However, before you embark on your writing journey, you need to learn the tricks of the trade. You need to learn it from people who have actually walked that road and know all the ins and outs. In this way, you will not stumble. Above all you will not need to fork out a large sum of money. He may even help you get it published and autograph your book as well. This will increase your sales dramatically especially if he is a well known figure.

You see nowadays, publishers have developed a method known as self-publishing which means that they will publish anything at all you want. The snag is that you have to bear with the full costs. You have to find a way of going round this so that publishers will accept your manuscript without charging you anything and you share the royalties depending on the percentage agreed between you and the publisher. In this way, you will not be overloaded with an expense which can run into the thousands.

So while getting a book published is indeed a viable way of projecting yourself how you go about it is equally important because you do not want to come out of it broke. If you pay for self-publishing and your book does not sell, it will be a tremendous headache for you.

So it is advisable to learn from people who have successfully published countless numbers of books. Secondly, write for a specific audience. Thirdly, write in simple conversational style and address the reader as ‘you’. Above all, your contents should never be self-glorifying or condescending. There should be enough substance to touch people's hearts. You also have to decide if it will be an e-book or a traditional book.

It is easy to give the salient points like this but the actual work of writing and producing the book requires the professional touch. So don't forget to arm yourself with a good mentor and an equally good dictionary.
