In this, technology-driven world creating your own identity is a very decent way to get known to an audience who will buzz around for you. Getting known for your work not only gives you a unique identity to cherish but can also earn you a steady stream of side income. The previous line reminds me of a quote by famous American magnate Warren Buffet.
“Never depend on single income make the investment to create a second source”
Not everyone in the world out there is lucky enough to get paid for what they really love to do. If you are passionate about something, the feeling of getting paid for the piece of art you created is indescribable. This feeling keeps you organized and helps you grow within your passionate niche. You fill motivated, and the urge of doing better and better keeps pumping.
One such a feeling for a writer would be getting his/her 1st eBook published. Writing an eBook is a great gig producer if you can do it just right. The popularity of every eBook on the web today depends on the idea the writer has penned to sell or the experience he/she have to share.
Well, a dream of getting your eBook popularized needs a support of right steps. Thus this article here is penned for the same reason. Hence to any beginner out there who is not sure from where to being, or is worried about anything else, should read this article till the end.
The article here will talk about simple steps every writer must consider if he/she wants to end up writing a great eBook.
Don’t just follow the money
Often beginners make blunders while choosing the niche they will be writing about. Choosing a topic which has a great market out there is a very wrong decision until you are versed about the same. Just like creating your own space is better than adjusting is someone else’s space. Similarly, creating your own niche is better than diving into those saturated and overpopulated niches.
Make sure you choose a topic you can write 1,000 pages without ending up with the content. When writing about something you know ideas get brewed up instantly. Also, a unique niche is more likely to get popular and also saves up a lot of your research time as you already know a lot about it.
Think about what you read lately
As a beginner, if you are still confused with what topic you should begin with, then a great solution to the problem is to think about what you have been reading lately. Turn the pages of those magazines or scroll through the blogs you often visit. Doing this should give you some healthy clues to proceed with.
Once you are done with choosing a topic, go deeper into it and spend time researching the positives and negatives of it. You will certainly find a lot of articles and related posts to gaze your eyes at.
Use your Blog if you have one
If you have your own active running blog, then this is a huge investment you made in the past, and now you will be enjoying the sweet fruits produced. As you have already created an audience for your content, the promotion process for any of your new work becomes simple.
In addition, you can take help from the audience whenever in doubt. A simple way to do is interact with the readers in the comment section. They will always have something to share you can work on.
Give proper time to research
Ignore researching every now and then. Instead, schedule a proper time for research. Bits and pieces of research can often confuse you, and this is where you will end up writing anything and everything which is not even required.
Set aside two weeks only for research before beginning with the writing work. Or you can research before you proceed with a new chapter for your eBook. The second option is what I will recommend, as a research after a certain point of time is more effective altogether.
Get the format sorted
One of the simplest ways to make your writing easy and structured is deciding the format in advance. When you will have a clear outline before beginning with the actual writing part, you will always have an idea of what is coming next.
Your outline must include the title of every chapter which will be the part of your eBook. It’s ok if the title is not exactly what it will be at the time of publishing but a glimpse of the title is important. Plus, also include subheadings or subsections for each chapter. A short summary of the content of the chapter will also help you.
A peaceful Environment
Writers often like it calm and quiet. A place where they can get their thoughts together and can pen them in the best way possible. An environment which supports them, forces them to think, and often takes them miles away from distraction.
Roam around and choose a spot where you feel most comfortable. A spot where your thoughts come to life. Turn off anything which might distract you like, your cell phone or any other device.
Write like you are writing an Email
There might be instances when you will struggle at some point when you will sit down to write all the thoughts you have been storing lately. Well, that’s ok, everyone gets stuck at some point, and when you get stuck, all you need to do is imagine that you are writing an email. Simply type what you say to someone and words will brew up instantly.
To make things simpler, you could take things further by using questions for your subheadings. “How do I get my CDR reviewed?” might make an easier section to describe. If you don’t like the question format for subheadings, you can simply rephrase them at the end.
As a beginner, getting a hold of these few points will give a positive sail to you and your eBook. All you need to do is; write for yourself like every popular writer does. Write without the expectations of hitting to the top of the charts. Write what makes you happy and everything will get sorted.
