Tis the Season to Write a Book blog series continues as we countdown our way to Christmas. Would you like help writing your book? Today is Day 12 of 24, here are 15 writing tips to get your book done, let's dive right in.
Set up your writing desk or another area where you feel inspired to write.
Schedule time to write. I recommend at least thirty minutes a day during the thirty-day writing challenge or two hours and thirty minutes a week.
Take a break from the first chapter and move forward. Don’t get stuck in perfectionism. Take one day or one week if needed, then go back to revise chapters.
Don’t be afraid to skip around. Some people write the introduction last.
Get a notebook or small journal and keep it with you. I call this a writer’s journal because you never know when inspiration will hit.
Push through the urge to procrastinate. Change your environment if needed to get inspiration. Visit a bookstore or library and write.
Check-in with your accountability partner twice a week when writing a book. Yes, you need accountability, first to God and yourself but also to someone else. If you have a community, that helps as well.
Set a start date and completion date for your book.
Use Google Docs on your phone to add to your book when you are not home or in front of your laptop.
Start before you’re ready; do it scared.
Move forward to the next chapter. Do not get stuck on finishing or perfecting and remember it’s a rough draft.
If you can take time off or write during the summer, that’s the best time.
Freewriting is your best friend. Just write and get it out.
Think about your reader and put yourself in your reader’s shoes.
Write the beginning, middle, and end. The beginning is the hook, and the middle is the main solution to the problem you solve, at the end is the time to give readers the next steps and congratulate them for finishing.
