You are on your way to writing an e-book. Good for you! If you had no problem coming up with a topic
and getting the research done, that’s great! But if now you find yourself suddenly stuck and not sure how to go about your first draft, we can help. First of all, you are not alone. It’s a common place for writers to reach a stumbling block. We’ll give you 3 tips that can help you get your e-book first draft done and see you moving on to the next stage. Are you ready?
Tip #1 Put Your Outline Together
The very first thing you should do is put your outline together. It’s one of the simplest tasks you will have and it will give you clear direction before you begin. Your outline needs to include a title for each one of the chapters. Don’t spend a great deal of time on this, because you can change them later to fit the actual copy better. However, creating these titles helps you to better visualize how things should be broken down. Make sure to also create subheadings for each of your chapters. Under each you will need to create your points that you are going to cover in detail.
#2 Find a Quiet Place
You need to find a space to writer where you will be free from distractions. Writing is a highly demanding undertaking and it requires a great deal of energy. Distractions can really make it difficult to stay focused and on track. Avoid temptations that can cause you to become distracted. Turn your phone off, forget about Facebook, Skype, Twitter, etc. They can eat away the time you should be focused on working.
#3 Visualize That You are Writing a Simple Email
If you find you are suddenly left sitting at your desk staring at your screen because your mind has gone completely blank, stop struggling, it will only make things worse. One little trick that seems to help many is to just imagine or visualize that you are writing a simple email to your friend. Just start typing and see what comes out of you later on.
You can grab your outline if you like and pretend that you are being asked a question for every title, subtitle and topic by a friend and then start writing like you are replying to that question with the answer.
Writing an e-book can be very rewarding, but it also requires dedication from you if you want it to be a success. These 3 simple tips will help you to get that first draft onto paper. After that it gets easier.
