Make it small and attainable so that you can hit your goal each day and start building momentum. Consistency makes creativity easier. Feel free to take a day off, if you want, but schedule that ahead of time. It just needs to be different from where you do other activities. It should remind you of your commitment to finish this book. Again, the goal here is to not think and just start writing.

Hi, I’m Jeff. Can I send you something?

Here, we are going to focus on the next three tips to help you get the book done:. Begin with the end in mind. Think in terms of thousand work increments and break each chapter into roughly equal lengths. Here are some general guiding principles:. You need a weekly goal. Make it a word count to keep things objective. You need to have something to aim for and a way to measure yourself.

This is the only way I ever get any work done: with a deadline. These can be friends, editors, family. Not really. No matter what, finish the book. Set a deadline or have one set for you. Then release it to the world. Send it to the publisher, release it on Amazon, do whatever you need to do to get it in front of people. The worst thing would be for you to quit once this thing is written. As you approach the end of this project, know that this will be hard and you will most certainly mess up.

Just be okay with failing, and give yourself grace.

Most authors are embarrassed by their first book. I certainly was. But without that first book, you will never learn the lessons you might otherwise miss out on. So, put your work out there, fail early, and try again. This is the only way you get better. You have to practice, which means you have to keep writing.

Every writer started somewhere, and most of them started by squeezing their writing into the cracks of their daily lives. The ones who make it are the ones who show up day after day. You can do the same.

But they never came to be. And in one way or another, the reason is always the same: the author quit. Worse yet, you wrote a book, but nobody cared about it. Nobody bought or read it. Tweet This. Just sit down and write. They are far more intentional than simply sitting and letting the words flow.

Every great writer needs a system they can trust. You and I are no different. This is the part that I never learned in any English class. Producing work that sells is not just about writing what you think is good. In other words, the writing process matters. It matters a lot. You have to not only finish your book but write one worthy of being sold.

And if you want to maximize your chances of finishing your book, you need a proven plan. Writing books has changed my life. If you need some help staying motivated, here are another 10 tips to help you keep going in the process:. Write and publish a novel, one chapter at a time, using Amazon Kindle Singles, Wattpad, or sharing with your email list subscribers. The idea of writing a page masterpiece can be paralyzing. Instead, write a short book of poems or stories.

Long projects are daunting.

Start small. Getting feedback early and often helps break up the overwhelm. Start a website on WordPress or Tumblr and use it to write your book a chapter or scene at a time. Then eventually publish all the posts in a hardcopy book. This is a little different than tradition blogging, but the same concepts apply. We created a free tool to help you know when your blog posts are ready to publish. You need it in order to keep fresh ideas flowing. I use Evernote , but use a system that works for you. Then, rewrite the entries in a much more polished book format, but use some photocopies or scans of the journal pages as illustrations in the book.

The truth is: inspiration is merely a byproduct of your hard work. After all, skills can be learned, practiced and improved; and surely anything which requires an act of effort must be less than something which comes fully formed, scrawled in its perfect entirety onto the nearest sheet of paper while some fuller, brighter version of life rages onwards. I am awake by , tipped into the morning by the enthusiastic rousing of my children, who come to each day as if it were the only one they had, and by 7am I am at work, still in my pyjamas, in whatever corner of the house is quiet.

My partner brings me coffee. Without set hours, without external demands on my time, while I might seem more free, I think it would be at the expense of everything, because I would get nothing done at all. I would drift, and wait, and time would pass, and I would feel, increasingly, as though I had failed. Besides, I love the pattern days have, the way they turn. At the moment my days have the rhythm of nursery runs and naptimes, lost shoes and park trips, and it is not only that the things are necessary in and of themselves, but that I find them, or some version of them, necessary to my work; and, more, at times they are a joy.

Sometimes, stood down the garden with the washing waiting to be pegged, knowing where I will be at each hour of the day, I feel myself rise. The church bell rings across the road. The baby cries. Twenty miles south of here, and thirteen centuries ago, Eadfrith of Lindsfarne illuminated a text of the gospels.

I imagine, sometimes, the labor involved, and how it must have been fitted to a routine of prayer and daylight. I think of each pigment made from scratch, each page prepared, pricked out, and how slowly the letters must have grown across the sheets of vellum. For the ten years or so it took to make, he would have risen each morning the same and set about his day, his work a consecrated act and its product given value by the time it took, his routine and his productivity entwined.
