Some people think being a best=selling author suggest that the writing process is simple for anyone who holds the title. Ha! That’s far from the truth! That may sound kinda crazy, but it’s actually more common than you would think. I recently put a poll on social media asking people who are in the writing process, “What’s the most frustrating part about writing a book?” The results across different platforms were consistent. Then I polled over a dozen author friends of mine. They shared similar issues as the aspiring authors. The comments and correspondence went something like this…
Q: What’s the most frustrating part about writing a book?
- I’m busy and just can’t seem to find TIME
- I’m creative and have trouble with ORGANIZATION.
Story of my life.
What is organization?
- Where do I start to piece together my thoughts to form an OUTLINE?
The Big 3: Time, Organization, and the Outline
I remember thinking the same sentiments. It took a while to put together a system to actually get the book done. To be exact, the idea of seriously being an author sparked in 2011 and didn’t happen until 5 years later! Truth is, once I really decided to make it happen it only took 10 months from idea to launch. Today, my process is even shorter than that! (We will chat about that later.)
Taking the time to craft a winning book proposal will enable you to organize, outline, and save time writing your book. But wait! What goes in a winning book proposal? I was fortunate to be given 3 winning book proposals from a major traditional publishing company. I took every element of goodness from each of the proposals to craft a master proposal. With this insite I was able to land two major publishing deals. However, I turned both of them down to start my own publishing company and produce a best-selling book! Are you interested in getting your hands on my proposal? LOL… I bet you are:)
