Finish Your Book Faster n Sell Sooner

Aug 17, 2007
Are you wondering if you'll ever finish your book? May I be honest? You won't if you use the start and stop method I used for years. I'd start fast then life happened.

My manuscript would end up in the drawer with the rest of my unfinished projects. No more, now I finish my book projects strong and fast. I learned from my mentors who showed me the way. I even learned from my competitors who finished their books fast to sell sooner.

Here are some speedwriting tips to help you finish fast and sell sooner:

1. Put your book goals in your top 3 priorities.

Setup a regular writing schedule. Think about your priorities right now. Can you fit 7-10 hours a week in? If you have to let something go that is not high on your priority list, do it. Now is your time. Later is not better. Set yourself up for a successfully written book this year by making your book goal a top priority. After it's done, remember to reward yourself.

2. Develop an intention statement for your book.

Do you have a plan in place? Write on purpose. Don't set yourself up for failure by not planning. Even if it's a simple intention goal like "I complete my book (title of book) this year by (date and year.) I educate myself and do what it takes to complete it." Set one and write it down so you can hit the target.

3. Write your book the easy way to finish fast.

Five of the top ways to speed write your book includes: Act Now. Action will paralyze fear each and every time. Avoid marathon writing. Know you don't have to become a hermit to write and complete a successful book. Commit to the tracking approach. Doing a set amount, even if it's only 30 minutes to an hour- each day builds a cumulative effect.

Know you don't have to write chapters in order. You can jump around and fill in the blanks to gain momentum. Maintain your momentum. Don't give in to writers block. Move on to work on the chapter you feel passion bubbling for at that moment.

4. Use laser focus. Apply laser focus to complete your book writing project faster.

For example, if you look at a 40 watt bulb, the light is soft. It's not even strong enough to light an average room sufficiently. Yet you can take the same 40 watts; put it in a laser gun and get a totally different output. In the laser gun, the same 40 watts become a focused beam of light that can cut through different objects like a sharp knife through paper.

Same amount of energy but different focus. To use laser focus in your book project, prioritize, do only one project at a time and complete one project before you start another.

If you don't use these techniques to finish fast, you may be this time next year working on the same book project. Remember to put your book writing in the top 3 priorities of your life, write an intention goal, learn to write the easy way and use laser focus.

Using the above simple tips you can easily write and complete your book. Finish fast; finish strong and sell sooner.
