How to Write a Book

It’s astonishing just how many people I speak to on a daily basis know with certainty that they have the next bestseller—if only they knew how to write a book. For some, time never seems to allow them the right to hit the keys and pour out the visions in their minds onto the computer screen.

Others haven’t a clue on how to get started. Whatever the reason, the $64,000 question still remains. How do you write a book when there’s not enough time? Know-how…? What most people don’t realize is that getting a book written is NOT as daunting as it seems at first glance.

The solution to this dilemma of “How do I write my book?” begins to unravel when we refine this approach to, “How do I get my book written?” Though this is subtle, the differences between the two perspectives are vast. The first stands from how you yourself are going to personally type out every word on the page. The second looks at how your book can be written otherwise.

From my own personal experience, at best, one in a thousand people ever see the fruition of their book ideas. This problem is so common solely because of the “first person” perspective; which is very limiting, by the way.

If you think about it for a minute, in the real world of book publishing. A book is a product, something produced that other people will want to buy and use. For all you purists out there, this in no way takes away from the creative aspect and beauty of what a well-written book is—it is art first and foremost.

But just as beautiful paintings are bought and sold every day, so too must books be viewed as products just like anything else. That is, if you ever want anyone to actually find and read yours. That said, where have you ever seen a single individual develop, produce, market, promote, sell … a product all on their own? It doesn’t happen, at least not by anyone who is successful. The expert knowledge and abilities of others are always brought in to get the job done while the inventor/creator oversees everything from above.

The point here is that if you have a desire to write a book but can’t get it written for whatever reasons, take a fresh, new, realistic perspective and find someone who can write it for you under your guidance. To achieve this dream is an incredible experience. There is such personal satisfaction, a feeling of self accomplishment and often great therapeutic relief from the creative process.

And this can all be yours simply by taking on the slightly different viewpoint from “how to write your book” to “how to get your book written.”

High quality, professional book writers can be found. Keyword searches with “ghost writer for hire” or “writer needed” or “writer services” will pull up plenty to consider for your project.
