It comes up a lot… how to go from idea to book. There’s really only one answer:
You write it!
Sorry for the tongue in cheek but you know it’s true!
But that doesn’t answer the question: how do you find time to write?
1. Make a Decision
This isn’t as easy as it seems! But the first thing you need to do is make the decision that your writing is important. Decide it’s worth your time, energy, creativity, and effort. Decide that it’s something you need to focus on – and that you are going to focus on it.
While it seems like “make a decision” is a once-and-done choice, it really isn’t. You have to keep deciding that your writing is important – every day if need be.
2. Set a Timer for 15 Minutes
I call this a mini-goal: you’re going to write for 15 minutes every day. EVERY.DAY. And then do it.
