A dear friend recently asked me how to get started writing a book.

Well anybody can write a book.

The magic is in writing a book that sells.

I sent the following link to my friend in hopes that he would consider it as a way to get started quickly writing a book that sells:

I recommended rather strongly that he format his book idea into a table of contents.

Precise details at the start of the project will not only give him focus and direction, but allow him to marshal the resources that he needs to get his project completed.

I told him that he should also have two or three working book titles as well.

This is the only no nonsense approach that I know in order to start any big project like book authorship.

Even if he does not have the final versions of chapter titles, he can really benefit from the structure.

I agreed to help him refine chapter title ideas through creativity and testing i.e. Covertise business writing services and focus groups. I believe all of this should be completed before writing a single word.

The man without a purpose is like a ship without a rudder — waif, a nothing, a no man. Have a purpose in life, and, having it, throw such strength of mind and muscle into your work as God has given you. — Thomas Carlyle

This is the only way I know how to write a book that sells.

I then invited my friend to buy into the approach.

And if accepted to have the table of contents complete for our next meeting.

If this is not an option, then he should enter into a co-authorship deal with a capable, published author.
