Here’s another ebook question from last month’s mailbag.
It was Bruce who asked me…
I have always had tons of ideas that I would love to put into eBooks. However when I sit down to do it I find that it is way to tedious for me. Any information on how to streamline and easily put together ebooks would be great.
Bruce, I understand what you mean.
Any time you start a new project, you stand at the edge of it, look out across your big dreams and plans, and marvel at how big a project it is.
How are you EVER going to write 100 pages of great, compelling information on your topic? Where’s all that information going to come from? How are you ever going to tackle such a BIG JOB?
Well, I’ve got an answer for you.
But let me ask you a question, first.
Bruce, I’m guessing that since you have so many ideas about which ebook you can write, you’ve got a lot of experience…and a lot of knowledge about all of them.
Imagine for a moment you’ve picked one…something you’re passionate about.
Thinking about "writing to all those people who are going to read my ebook" about your passion has got to be overwhelming. And intimidating.
So let me ask YOU a question.
What if instead of your writing to "all those people," you wrote to just one person?
And what if instead of you writing to one stranger, you actually just imagined you were speaking to a good friend?
What would you tell a good friend about your passion?
And how would you talk to him or her?
When I think about my projects this way, any stress I have about my topic either disappears immediately, or gets reduced dramatically.
And I’ll tell you something else…your writing is going to be much better, too.
There’s a huge difference between "expert-speak" — the PhD-level, jargon-filled, exclusive-sounding writing style that bad ebooks are written in (like you’re speaking the law from the top of the mountain) — and "conversational" language, which is how you’d talk to a friend…
… and how I’m writing to you right now.
Get the difference?
And one last thing, Bruce…
Before you start writing, start first by putting yourself in the shoes of your friend — the person who doesn’t know your topic yet — and just imagine all the questions he or she would be asking you.
Write them all down.
And now, rather than trying to figure out what to write, just ask and answer your friend’s questions.
That’s how I write all my ebooks, and how you can write ebooks, too, without the stress you seem to be starting with, and the tedium that you’re trying to avoid.
I hope so.
To Your Success,
