if you discovered there was one little word that stood between
your book dream being realized in the next 100 days or not?
Would you want to know that one word? Yes, great! Before I tell
you, think about this. There are thousands of people that die
each year with their book dream never realized. You may wonder,
what's the difference between the ones that die with a book
inside them and the ones that put pen to paper to write a book?
Some say book authors have more smarts and more time. Perhaps
they have a bigger brain or were born with a silver spoon in
their mouth. None of the above is true. In fact, there's very
little difference between the two groups. That little difference
can be boiled down to one word, ACTION.
Both groups receive great ideas and inspired messages. One group
receives the idea but never ACTS on it. They never develop it
and it eventually fades away. The group that fulfills their
dream of becoming an author receives the idea, ACTS on it, develops
it and completes it. Won't you join the group that acts on their
ideas? Here are 5 tips that will help you write a book in the
next 60 days or less:
Move your book dream up to the top 3 priorities. No,
you don't have to sell your soul anymore to write a saleable
book. Use the cumulative effect of doing a little bit at a time.
Even so, unless you want it to take years to write, you must
schedule writing time each week. For example, you could write
2 pages a day and have a short book in weeks.
Develop a regular writing schedule. Think about your priorities
right now. Can you fit 7-10 hours a week in? If you have to
let something go that is not high on your priority list, do
it. Now is your time. Next year is not better. Set yourself
up for a successfully written book in the next 100 days by making
your book goal a top priority.
2. Stump out the fear of failure. Many writers
tremble in their tracks with fear that their book won't sell.
Don't be afraid. Your book will sell if its presents useful
information, answers important readers questions, and impacts
people for the good. If it presents entertaining or humorous
information it could go farther than you imagined.
If it creates a deeper understanding of humanity, animals of
this world its worth reading. With one to three of these elements
your book is worth writing. More than three, it has potential
of making great sales –even to best seller status. Go
ahead, write your book and make the world a better place.
3. Avoid re-inventing the wheel.
Use the information you already have. Your audience is looking
for solutions to their problems. They are looking to you for
encouragement to overcome their challenges. Mine your background,
your files, and your speeches for the gold called your knowledge.
Use speedy book writing techniques and finish your book faster
to sell sooner. Stay with what you know.
You're the expert. To have the best chance to get your book
done in the next 100 days, use what you have already written.
Use your speeches, your seminars, your notes and experiences.
Fill your book with your stories, case studies and examples.
4. Choose your target audience.
Then write your book for them. When you give your book a target,
it will resonate with your audience. To be honest, your book
will not interest everyone. When you target one audience at
a time, each tip, each story or how-to will be more effective.
Aim your message and you will have a competitive edge on most
For many just shoot their message out into the dark and hope
it connects with someone. When targeting your potential readers,
create an audience profile. Are your potential readers male
or female? How old are they? Are they interested in self-help,
mystery, romance, how-to books? What problems do they face?
Are they business people or professionals? Are they techies
or non-techies? Are they willing to spend $15-30 on your book....
let one word keep you from realizing your book dream in less
than 100 days. Act now; you can do it. Remember to put your
book writing in the top 3 priorities of your life, stump out
fear of failure, avoid re-inventing the wheel, choose your target
audience and make an educated choice about your publishing options.

your book in a 100 days or less. Act now and use your ideas
before they fade. Here's to your best success as Author.
