I am often asked the question: “How did you write your book?”

When I began my journey to feature the stories of 10 entrepreneurial women, I considered the book stats and was surprised that 80% of the population would like to write a book; but only 2% actually publish and sell more than 5,000 copies.

Never-the-less, there are some amazing inspirational stories about authors who despite rejection after rejection keep pushing forward with the drive, determination and discipline to publish and succeed!

My objective: tell the stories of “ordinary women who do extra ordinary things.” Sharing their journey to inspire others so that you too can pursue your dreams by starting a new career or business and perhaps take that leap of faith and enjoy the risk and reward of being self-employed.

To quote Audrey Hepburn: “nothing is impossible, the word itself says “I’m possible.”

So with a clear focus, here are a few things to consider:

  1. How much time do you have to devote to writing?
    – there will be opportunity costs to consider
  2. What do you want to write about?
    – this is where you decide on both genre and subject matter
  3. When do you want to publish? One year, two?
    – depends on #1 – how much time is available to write
  4. Are you going to self-publish or find a publisher?
    – I’ve tried both – pros and cons for each
  5. Create the outline
    – I used a goal setting technique to develop a schedule for completion
  6. Create a formula for interest and consistency; below is my formula:
    – develop a questionnaire, then interview, write the chapter, and confirm content
  7. Compile the chapters and reconfirm your message
    -ask a trusted colleague or friend for feedback
  8. Edit
    – find an editor who can scrub the words and check grammar
  9. Make the changes and rewrite if necessary
    -keep you published date in mind; then…
  10. Manuscript is ready to publish!

Now, the PR, marketing, advertising, layout and visual image begin and that is a whole other segment in your chapter of the journey to become a published author.

My three words of advice: “pursue your dreams” – become part of the 2%.

It is truly a very rewarding experience.
