Do you want to write a book?
It’s not an easy question.
Many of us would love to jot down our fondest stories and our tallest tales to preserve forever in written form. Whether you’re a born storyteller or need a little assistance from spellcheck and the thesaurus, Lauren Bingham is here to help you decide whether the time is “write” to make your author’s dreams a reality. How to Write a Book: A Book for Anyone Who Has Never Written a Book (But Wants to) is Lauren’s most personal work, providing insight into what makes writers tick and how to bring the passion out on paper.
Writing a book may come easily to you, or it may be the most painful endeavor of your life. Unfortunately, there’s no way to know unless you give it a try. Thankfully, Lauren is here with a very candid look into the writing process.
From determining why you should even bother writing a book in the first place to determining whether you have what it takes to complete your first volume, Lauren helps you evaluate what your personal writing process will look like. Next, she will guide you through the pre-work of formulating your book and share practical—if not brutally honest—advice for remaining calm and focused throughout the writing process. You’ll learn about the emotional toll editing can take on you, and how a good sense of humor and an open mind can help you learn plenty about yourself while setting your first book up for success.
Whether you aspire to become a bestseller or just want to commemorate a few thoughts before it’s too late, this is the book for anyone who is a determined and dedicated fledgling writer, procrastinator, excuse-maker, or anyone who is a little of each. From navigating the myriad of roadblocks that can occur when making dreams reality to getting your words to the masses, Lauren Bingham is an informal yet essential look at the writing process.
