How to Write a Book in 90 Days (or Less)
How would you like to impact the world by sharing your message? People could read your words over and over again for you to realize that you had a major impact on their life. It does sound surreal to most, but I know that you have a message worth sharing with the world. Therefore, it’s time to put it to paper. My clients pay me a lot for this information alone— since, just like you— they want to share their message to have a major impact, and your message is no different. It deserves all the attention that it can get, which is why I will help you get it out within a ninety-day period, so, you can impact more people in less time.
Writing a book is an art on its own, ready to be read by thousands of people, even millions at times. The impact it has on our world is utmost positive. Seth Godin once said, “art is what it is to be human” (Godin 1). So, sharing your message is an art, especially since it needs to be transcribed in a book. Therefore, before we move forward, I’d like for you to think about your current outcome and your desired outcome, so that we can bridge the gap from having an idea to turning it into a book.
Start by Visualizing the Outcome
You want to have a major impact but you don’t know how to start, don't worry, you’re not alone, and there are ways to get around it. The most prominent technique you can use to get started is to visualize your ideal situation. What would it take for you to be living the life of an author? It would be great having people reach out to you because you have your own book, right? Well, before having your own book, you need to become an author and be ready for it, of course. You need to visualize the experiences that authors are currently living with: reading, writing, editing, publishing, taking major decisions for their brand, speaking to their audience via interview or on stages. Visualize the author’s process and get ready for it.
Visualizing your desired outcome is a power that will enable you to reinforce your dream of becoming an author. In Genevieve Behrend’s Your Invisible Power, she states that “when your understanding grasps the power to visualize your heart’s desire and you hold it with your will, it attracts to you all things requisite to the fulfillment of that picture by the harmonious vibrations of the law of attraction. You realize that since Order is Heaven’s first law and visualization places things in their natural order, then it must be a heavenly thing to visualize” (Behrend 11). And in doing so, you are well on your way to becoming an author, even if you are yet to write a single word. At least, now, you are prepared to become an author more than ever before. You have the vision, the mindset, and the will to get started by conquering your fears, no matter what obstacle may come your way. Moreover, even with the right vision, you still need to know how you will be able to transform lives through the art and power of transcribing your book. However, what’s missing is the topic of discussion— the one that will transform people’s lives forever— including your own.
Writing a book is quite a task
Many coaches, speakers, and influencers have so much to share online, but when it comes time to sit down in front of a blank canvas, they freak out. What they know seems to be gone, but why?
In this article, you will go through the easiest ways of writing a nonfiction book and it’s not what you think. This isn’t based off a Q&A practice that many ghostwriters use. Even though that’s a great technique, you’ll be able to learn more strategies.
Turn an E-book into a Workbook
This is by far the easiest strategy of becoming a published author. If you’ve already written an e-book, which you may have since your amazing at teaching your audience new strategies within your niche, you will be able to add exercise to get your book out to print. It’s that simple. Don’t overcomplicate the process. If your ebook is already written, turning it into a workbook is as easy as adding additional sections within the book, editing and formatting it, along with having a marketable book cover designed. Then, it’s off to KDP for you to upload your files.
Social Media Has Your Best Content
I know you’re either a LinkedIn, Facebook, or Instagram junkie. And that’s fine. No one is judging you. However, since you released so much content on your favourite platforms, you possibly have many chapters or sections written for a full-length book. Once again, since you love coaching your audience on the best practices within your niche, content has been distributed many times, and it’s now the time to add it in a book.
Get inspired by the content you already have. Most times, it’s powerful enough to help you find inspiration. The reason it is recommended is that you were once proud of it. So now is the time to refine it.
Know Your Word Count
Know how many words you need to write on a daily basis. Say you have nothing but an idea and in 90 days your work must be complete, start doing the math.
Here are a few different examples depending on your ideal book length:
75,000 Words / 90 Days = 833.33 Words Per Day
50,000 Words / 90 Days = 555.55 Words Per Day
35,000 Words / 90 Days = 388.88 Words Per Day
By deconstructing the amount of time it takes to write your book, you’ll be more at ease with the task. If you don’t meet your daily word count any day, make sure to write it down and then work for an hour or more during the weekend. While everyone does have a different schedule, I recommend writing sixty minutes per day. You’ll have more than enough time to complete your book on time if you set the same amount of time every day.
