Deciding a Subject Matter for Your EBook

Aug 17, 2007
This will be the hardest part of this process. The ability to write does not come naturally to most people. Due to this, we are often overwhelmed by the anxiety to write even the simplest of things. The best way to conquer this fear is to simply face it and get writing. To this end, I will discuss several tips that will help you to write your own material.

The subject you write about often determines how much you fear writing. If you are unsure about a topic, or do not simply know anything about the topic, and then you become more and more anxious trying to write about it.

The first thing we will do is break down the process into smaller parts this will help considerably during your writing. By breaking the process down, we can look at one section, work through it, and then move on to the next. This allows us to build upon each smaller success to form a larger overall bigger success.

So what are the steps involved.

Well, before you can write about something, you simply must know what that something is going to be. In other words, you have to have a subject to write about. Well, as I said earlier, we are tying to make this easier on you, so you will want to start with a topic that you are familiar with. Something you already know very well.

The topic you choose should come naturally to you. It should be something that you know very well, may have studied before, or have been doing for years, The more you know about the topic, the more you will be able o write about it.

Once you have a topic in mind, then make a list of thins that you know about that topic. This list should be as clearly defined as you can make it.

For example, say we are going to write a book on how to photograph squirrels in your backyard, we might start with a list similar to the one below:

Types of cameras for the best shot
How to get squirrels to come to you
The best background to use for subject
How to get closer without buy inexpensive lenses

These are just a few ideas. Try to make this list as long as you can. Cover any details that might be needed to complete the task that is being covered. You do not want to leave out any critical or important steps. As this will only cause confusion and frustration for the reader.

Now that you have your subject matter, and hopefully a list of potential sub topics, you will need to get started on writing the main content of your book. To do this, simply write a few paragraphs about the topic sub category. The length of each sub-topic should be between 500-700 words, If you think the topic will need more space then that, then consider breaking it down into two or more separate sub-topics. You want to make sure that your sub sections are as concise as possible.

The next step is an important one. That is editing and proofreading your material. Make sure that you spend some time making corrections and re-reading your material for clarity. If you're not that sure about it, then let someone else read it. Make sure that they give you an honest opinion, as you are trying to provide a high-quality product.

Once your product has been proofed, and you are satisfied with it, you can move on to marketing and selling your product.
