I’ve actually done it! After weeks of thinking about it then days of trying to sort out the technical side of things, I’ve started writing my Kindle book and it feels GREAT! The funny thing is, I got stuck trying to write it the “proper” way, the traditional way of starting at the beginning. What worked for me was putting all of the chapter titles down and then flitting between them, writing whatever came into my mind at that moment. O.K., this probably won’t work if you’re writing a novel (though that is the way films are made so maybe I should try it when I get around to doing my novel) but it does work if you’re writing a self-help book. When I tried doing it from the beginning, my writing was stilted and it wasn’t working. It was laborious, a chore and it sounded false. Writing bits and pieces, flitting from one thing to another, made my writing flow with one idea sparking another and it was FUN. 🙂 If I can manage to be disciplined enough to do this for half an hour every day, I will actually get it finished and instead of having one book completed by the end of the year, I might well have several.
Now that WOULD be an achievement!
