How to Write a Best Book

In this high tech advanced world that we live in now, it appears many may have forgotten books, or at least lost touch with them for entertainment. We have television with multitudes of channels and devices that allow you to record programs and view them whenever you want so you can basically have an unlimited supply of entertainment to view.

Author of Best Selling BooksIn a generation where virtually every household has a computer with an internet connection, we can email, visit chat rooms and more. There are chat rooms and websites on every topic you can think of. So where does that leave books in our lives?

What role do books play in your everyday life? Are they dust-collectors on a library shelf? Do you pull them down when you need to look for something or to find the definition of unfamiliar text?

They say that everyone has a book in them. Whether this is true or not, I don’t know, but the difference is that very often people talk about their desire to write a book, but never seem to make the time, and constantly make excuses as to why they never seem to get around to it.

Others act on their desire, opening themselves up to receiving ideas or inspiration and hey presto, before they know it they are writing their masterpiece. Whether you start writing your book right now or at a future date is immaterial, although it is better to act on your idea and start right away.

First of all you need to decide what you are going to write about, and what sort of a book it is going to be. Will research be required or is it a subject that you are familiar with? Is it information that is going to be of interest to the reader? What niche are you targeting? Is there a market out there who will purchase your book? Do you have people interested enough in your subject and willing to part with their hard earned cash?

Is it going to be regular books in which case you may need a Publisher or will you write an e-Book or self publish? Perhaps you should spend time doing your own research to determine if there is room for another book like yours on the market. How can you make your book different to all of the others? What will your unique selling point be? Check out resources to see the type of books people are buying as this will give you a good indication of what your potential market is likely to be and if it will be a popular choice.

It’s better to choose a subject matter that you know about and can write about easily. If your subject is your passion like writing a best selling romance books, then the better, you will find that when you are in the zone and writing about your passion, then the inspiration will flow whenever you are immersed in your writing. Whether you are writing as a hobby or for a living, it doesn’t matter. What matters is that you are happy with what you are doing. You may even make a lot of money from your hobby which could be the start of a new project or lucrative lifestyle for you.

After you have decided upon the topic of your book, start collecting ideas for it. When something grabs your attention, no matter where you are, write it down and capture as much information as you can. Thoughts could come to you at any time. You might be grocery shopping or at your son’s soccer game. The best thing is to be prepared and always keep a pad of paper and pen with you. Or, even better, you can have a small hand-held voice recorder.

You’ll be amazed at where inspiration can strike. For example, as you are sitting at your child’s outdoor sporting event, focus on things going on around you. Perhaps you see a child playing off by himself in the dirt and you watch as another child around the same age slowly and shyly approaches, wanting to be friends. Before long, they have bonded and are now sharing their toys or reading good books for children. Write the scenario down and think later, about ways you could use that story to illustrate a point when you are writing your book. A pad of paper and pen or the voice recorder will soon become your greatest companion!

The “ideas” you collect don’t necessarily have to apply to your current writing project. Keep the collected ideas on hand for the right moment or project. When you need ideas, simply refer to your idea collection to draw something new from it, and something fresh to spawn more ideas!
