3 Reasons you’re procrastinating on your book.

Lighting a fire to get the job done.

For years you’ve had this dream of finally writing the book of your dreams, getting it published, and becoming the next New York Times Bestseller. You sit down to write, make some real progress this time, but you can’t move forward? Sound like you?

This feeling of being stuck and not getting the book written is a story most writer’s tell me. Truth to tell, I’ve had writers tell me they’re shocked at how many words I write a year. I write over 100,000 words a year, just on this blog. That isn’t counting what I do for other organizations or my own books.

Know your 'why' before your write!

Every book has a unique goal in mind. That goal should be the driving force behind why you’re writing the book. If we don’t have an end in mind, our book will fall down flat. This is why I encourage people to create a propositional statement for why they are writing their book.

When I wrote, “Grace: What’s So Amazing About It?” I wanted to narrow down my focus so that I knew why I was wanting to write this book. I wanted to make sure I was on target as I began writing that first chapter.
