Writing the Wrong Book

Donna Kozik, Guest Author

What Do I Mean by “Writing the Wrong Book?”

There’s nothing worse than spending tons of time, energy and money on writing your book, only to find that it’s useless as a “big business card.” How could this happen?

wrongbookUnfortunately, it can be really easy. Here are some of the situations and how to solve them.

1. Writing about a subject your market has no interest in. This is probably the biggest mistake business book authors make.

They fall in love with their subject and think the world will, too. The thing is, it’s hard to use your book as a lead generator if no one is interested in what you have to say.

The solution: think like the people you want to attract. What kind of questions are they asking you? What do they want to know about? You can start there and then expand “an inch wide and a mile deep” to show off your expertise.

2. Putting the wrong title on your cover. And I don’t mean a typo (although I’ve seen it happen!). Generic titles, just like generic marketing messages, don’t pique interest. Instead, get as specific as you can in what your book is about (easier if you follow step one) in your title.

Another effective option is to use a catchy 2, 3 or 4 word title and then use your subhead to call out to your target audience. Examples of this include Timothy Ferriss and his book: “The 4 Hour Work Week: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere and Join the New Rich.”

My favorite is friend Michael Katz: “It Sure Beats Working: 29 Quirky Stories and Practical Business Lessons for the First Time, Mid-Life Solo Professional.” He actually names his “target reader” in his title. That Michael is so clever!

3. Blame the book for lack of promotion efforts. Sometimes it’s not the book’s fault, but the author’s for lack of follow through in promotion. Remember, writing the book is one thing, but then promoting it is a whole new area needing time, energy and attention.

Think about how you’re going to market yourself and your book as much as, if not more, than what your book will contain.

Ready to throw up your hands in despair and forget the whole thing? DON’T!

I’ve heard it time and time again from the experts, and it’s something I know for myself: there is no better vehicle than a book for establishing expertise and generating leads.

Write your book but put some thought and effort on the front end to make sure you write the right book.

8 Things I’ve Learned from Writing My First Book

Filed under: Author Tips,How to Write — Larry James @ 8:30 am
Tags: , , ,

Patti Johnson, Guest Author

Chances are, you have a story to tell. Or maybe there’s a message you’re dying to share with the world. Research says that 81% of us want to write a book someday; I am one of them. I’m getting closer to crossing this goal off of my bucket list in May 2014.

I pictured myself sitting in a cozy coffee shop finding the perfect words to tell my story. I’ve had those magical days, along with many very late nights, rewriting a chapter to meet a looming deadline.

FirstBookAn author friend compared writing a book to giving birth – one of the best things you’ll ever do, but painful just before you finish. She said it often takes at least one year afterward before you’d consider bringing another book into the world. I’m still a little over four months away from my first book birth and I get it.

I am writing a ‘business casual’ book called Make Waves: Be the One to Start Change at Work and in Life. In it, I share how changes in organizations and communities can start because of the decisions and actions of just one person.

Here are the highlights and “must-knows” of what I’ve learned so far in writing a book, in case you are in that 81 percent too.

1. Know the why. You’ll need it. ~ Know the real reason why you want to write. Is it to share a family story, demonstrate your expertise, grow your business or transition to a career as an author? These answers will influence your timing, if you self-publish or go to a more traditional publisher, the time required, and the financial commitments. Also, knowing your ‘why’ will help you stay with it when it gets hard – and it will.

2. Decide the time and financial investment that you are willing to make. ~ At first, when I was told how much time it would take, I naively thought, ‘I’m always busy. I know how to juggle.’ This is different. Before my major manuscript deadline, it felt like a recurring repeat of finals week. Remember the movie Groundhog Day? Also, understand the extra costs that an author may cover, such as a website, additional marketing support, and assistance in your ‘day job’ to pull it off regardless of how you publish.

3. Dabble and experiment to find your voice. ~ No matter how or what you write, give yourself time and avenues to experiment and find your footing. Start a blog. Write a chapter or two and invite others to give you frank feedback. Allow time for your ideas to percolate and assimilate. My agent helped me shape up my final proposal.

4. Understand the new rules. ~ Book writing and publishing work by different rules. So, if you have no experience, talk to those who do – a lot of them. It’s not just about writing, but building a community around you who’ll be interested in buying your book. Talk to those who have gone before you and use the many online resources.

5. Publishing is a business. What’s your ROI? ~ Think of agents and publishers as investors and you as an entrepreneur. Do you have compelling content and a platform to share it so that they want to invest their time and resources in you? If you go the self-publishing route, then you are making that investment in yourself. The return on investment matters regardless of how you publish.

6. Not everyone will be interested in your baby. ~ You spend months writing this wonderful book, yet some won’t be interested and when you publish some won’t like it. You are putting yourself out there and that’s why it’s amazing! Learn, listen and adapt, but then let it go and hope that your writing will influence the right person or people rather than everyone.

7. Authors are in sales. ~ You are ultimately responsible for selling the book. Yes, you may have wonderful partnerships and support, but it is ultimately up to you. You’ll have to ask for help and support often. If you don’t like this idea, consider this right up front.

8. You don’t have to publish to write. ~ Books are the historical gold standard on sharing your thoughts. But today there are so many other possibilities. Start your own blog or ask to contribute to others’ blogs. Many authors started writing their book through a series of blog posts that became essential content. You’ll soon learn if you have the passion for writing a book.

If you know your “why” and have the commitment to do it, then get started. Find your first step, even if it’s setting up your first blog. You can do that today.

Authors: Maintain a “Thought Starter” File

Today I’m going point you in the direction of an article by Henneke Duistermaat from Enchanting Marketing. Henneke lives in the UK. She shows you when originality is good and when it’s bad, and she also gives you a strategy for exactly how to do it right. Enjoy.

First read: The Sin of Originality (and the Truth about Building a Popular Blog). Note: This article opens in a new browser window so can easily come back here to read the rest of this article.

ThoughtStarter1I use a similar technique. Henneke calls it a “Swipe File,” I call it a “Thought Starter” file. It’s a great place to gather your thoughts. That is where I store my good and not-so-good ideas. It’s one of the ways to overcome what some people call writers block. I rarely have this dis-ease. It’s fun to polish a not-so-good idea into something refreshing and new.

Where do ideas come from? Everywhere! They are everywhere. To find them, you must be receptive to recognize them when they show up. When they do… immediately write the compelling ideas down or they will most likely disappear.

“You get ideas from daydreaming. You get ideas from being bored. You get ideas all the time. The only difference between writers and other people is we notice when we’re doing it.” ~ Neil Gaiman

When an idea comes and you automatically discard it as not good enough or think that no one would be interested in it, that is a mistake. A good writer can make it interesting. I write down some of the most silly things thinking that perhaps later – in a different frame of mind – I might be able to reshape the idea to fit what I am writing about currently. Sometimes that idea reveals itself in a totally different way and from it springs a totally different idea. Therefore a long-dormant idea inspires a totally new one.

“People struggling with writer’s block aren’t at a loss for ideas. Many are merely dismissing their own good ideas (often because they aren’t perceived as original enough) or they don’t want to put a lot of effort into looking for ideas.” ~ Melissa Donovan

In my “Thought Starter” file, I write (in my own words) my impression of what Henneke says she puts in her “Swipe File.” That way I can never be accused of plagiarism. On occasion you may see similarities, but never a direct quote unless I credit the author. I may not use these ideas until – at some point in the future – the thought reoccurs, however the ideas are always there until I need them.

ThoughtStarter2I write something every day. I have 5 Websites and 4 blogs. Something new goes up on each of my blogs every 4th day, so I must write something everyday. Sometimes I may sit and wonder what to write about. That’s when I look over the ideas that I started in my “thought starter” file but never finished. That file kick-starts my thinking and creativity. I often cannot wait for inspiration. I have to get inspired.

I especially like what Henneke says: “No treasure of blogging jewels lies waiting to be heisted. You need to know where to look.” And you have to stop reading purely for pleasure. I agree. Instead you need to begin to “study” content. Studying refreshing content is one of the keys! So is originality! Authors need to learn to use their creative imagination more often. That’s where new, fresh and exciting ideas come from. Sometime deadlines are quite enough inspiration. 😉 Other times the proverbial “aha moment” just happens. That’s when something clicks and I must quickly return to my keyboard.

“For me, a combination of two words on a billboard, or even two colors together, or a photo, or a comment overheard in the grocery checkout aisle – all fodder for blogging. Seriously, I’ve gotten more ideas from tacky casino ads as I drive across the bridge from PA to NJ… the blog never has anything to do with the billboard itself, just a couple of the words on it. It’s odd how the strangest combination of things can turn into a new blog post. But I have to write it down quickly, ideas are ‘easy come, easy go!'” ~ Nancy

Inspiration often comes from people watching. Leo Babauta once said, “People watching. This is an interesting activity for any writer. Go to a busy public place and just sit and watch people. They’ll amuse you, inspire you, fascinate you. There’s nothing more inspiring than humanity.”

“Prodigious writers aren’t simply lucky writers. They’re active writers. They search, they think long and hard, and they write their way through dead-ends in order to arrive at promising starts.” ~ Aaron Gilbreath

Some writers write their ideas for their thought starter. I have a file in my computer labeled, “Thought Starters” and refer to it often sometimes to write a new thought and other times to retrieve an old one. I got the idea for this article after I read Henneke’s article (Hmmm, studying content again). Hope this was helpful.

Writing a Book: Where Do You Begin?

Filed under: Author Tips,Blogging Tips,Creativity,How to Write — Larry James @ 7:30 am
Tags: ,

Are you ever afraid you will run out of ideas when writing?

If you’re tired of skimming your community newspaper or trolling the shelves of your public library for article ideas, you’re a pretty typical writer. Ideas to write about are everywhere. Try observing, reading, listening and paying attention to life in general. You must be committed to writing and to never running out of ideas if you want to write a book.

MessyDeskWhen I wrote my first book, I decided it should have 10 chapters. I started by titling each chapter then started writing in the chapter that I knew would be the easiest to start. My second book became total of 333 different topics about relationships. Some topic were long some were short but when it came time to put them all together I had enough topics for a 310 page relationship book.

“Don’t be afraid to start somewhere in the middle. Write the pieces that are flowing for you. That may not be the introduction or chapter one. It might be chapter twelve. Trust your flow and write what’s coming.” ~ Marnie Pehrson

Because people love to find easy-to-follow instructions and “how to” books to help them accomplish something, the relationship book became my best seller. There was something there for everyone. It got the attention of a producer on ABC TV’s “The View.” Four months later Barbara Walters interviewed me and the book went national.

I have a special file in my computer labeled, “Fresh Ideas.” There you will find anywhere from a couple of lines or a paragraph or two of an idea about another topic to write about. Whenever I need an idea I pop open that file. Usually there are quite a few ideas and perhaps a couple of lines to get me started on something new. Often I will nurture these ideas, maybe writing an additional line or thought about them, then let the idea go again to stumble across it at a later date.

ideaI also have a file basket on my computer desk. Mooch from magazines. Often I can be seen at a fast-food joint skip-reading a few magazines that I seem to never have time to read at my office. Keep your notepad handy when reading magazines and newspapers. Use a voice recorder. I always take notes while reading, these quick ideas which may seem unimportant at first will be invaluable in the future.

When an idea comes, I scribble some notes and toss it in the file basket on my computer desk. I will often revisit a story I’ve already written and come up with new angles for other markets. I will re-slant the article accordingly. Use your own creative imagination. I will also often get an idea from driving past a billboard. Sometimes just a few words will pop out at me. I make notes for later. I never run out of ideas.

Read bumper stickers. Pay attention to advertisements. Advertisements tell a story in a few short words. Restate the idea in your own words, then expand it. Again, the ads show the current trends. Read a variety of magazines, because you never know what may hit you.

A trip down the Hallmark or American Greetings aisle promises to generate ideas about the range of human emotions. You don’t have to buy them to get ideas from the text and artwork. Making ideas happen isn’t easy and requires patience, determination and hard work.

Join an authors group. Brainstorm with other writers. Jotting down even two words is usually enough to trigger the idea when you’re ready to start working on an article later. When I read something that someone else has written about the topic I am pursuing, ideas of my own pop into my head; sometimes they are my interpretation of what I just read, but are in my own words. Because something similar has already existed, doesn’t mean you can’t make an improvement on it.

“While most people complain about standing in line or waiting for the doctor or dentist, I consider waiting an opportunity. The next time you find yourself waiting for something, instead of pacing and griping, tune into your own thoughts. It’s amazing what can occur to you if you’ll just quiet your mind. Pay attention to what’s going on around you. In other words, eaves drop.” ~ Patricia Fry

If you are committed to writing, you will need a constant flow of new ideas for articles. Write what you know best or about things you want to know more about. You need only to take a look at your own life to find ideas. If what you’re reading, watching, or listening to doesn’t directly relate to what your looking for for a blog or article, you should always try to find a way to relate it to your business or to the topic at hand.

You can use the same formula for books. Write enough articles on the same subject and after a while you will have enough material for a book! Things I’ve blogged about can be put together to form a book.

Scribble, Scribble… Write, Write!

Filed under: How to Write,Writers Block — Larry James @ 9:00 am
Tags:

I rarely have writer’s block because I “think” about writing all the time. When an idea comes to me… I write. The photo below shows a recent flash of inspiration that hit me while I was having a snack at a fast food restaurant. It’s not so important that you can see the words I scribbled, it’s important that you can see that I wrote. This is one of my peculiar and unconventional techniques to get my mind going in the right direction.

writerNOTESWhile snacking, I got an idea for my business networking blog. I was catching up on reading some mail and had a magazine nearby. I opened the magazine and began looking for something to write on. I removed the APC tear-out ad and began making some notes. When I had made notes on both sides of the card, I tore out a page and kept writing.

When I returned to my office I began to put all these scribbles together to form a new article. If I had waited until I got back to my office I probably would have lost the inspiration and most of what I jotted in my notes.

TIP: When previewing websites, magazines, billboards, newspapers, etc., look for words that trigger new thoughts (about what you are writing) and new ways to express what you need to say… in your own words, of course.

“You don’t always need to be a professional with a degree to write. All you need to start is a book of blank paper and a pen, mixed with a little emotion, inspiration and motivation anyone can use writing as a therapeutic release.” ~ Ally Hart

I have 4 blogs and something new goes up on each blog every forth day. That’s a commitment I made when I began blogging. Fresh content is king! I write every day! I have a passion for writing. I love to write. So… I write.

It takes discipline to be a writer. Commitment to being a writer makes you a writer. Stop using energy thinking about it. It takes a lot of energy to remain confused! Redirect your energy into doing it. Just do it. Walk into your office; open your computer and begin. When the ideas come you must be prepare to write them down.

“The important thing is that there should be a space of time, say four hours a day at least, when a professional writer doesn’t do anything else but write. He doesn’t have to write, and if he doesn’t feel like it he shouldn’t try. He can look out of the window or stand on his head or writhe on the floor, but he is not to do any other positive thing, not read, not write letters, glance at magazines, or write checks. Either write or nothing.” ~ Raymond Chandler, creator of Philip Marlowe and author of novels and screenplays, writing about how he gets himself to do things.

To me writing is an art form of the imagination. It’s a writers duty is to express that art form in words. Embrace the words you write, but – editorially speaking – don’t get to attached to them. I’ve often said that the teacher teaches what the teacher needs to learn. Writing is an adventure! In the research stage an author learns more about the topic and then expresses what he learns in his own words. Sometimes when I go back and read something that I have written 5 or more years ago, I am surprised by the words. It’s a great feeling to know that hopefully others have learned from what I have written.

“The biggest takeaway for anyone seeking to write is this: don’t go looking for the way other authors do their work. You won’t find many who are consistent enough to copy, and there are enough variations in approach that it’s obvious that it’s not like hitting home runs or swinging a golf club. There isn’t a standard approach, there’s only what works for you (and what doesn’t).” ~ Seth Godin

Don’t wait for inspiration. Just write. Take your time. You cannot rush the creative process.

“Stop using energy thinking about writing. Redirect energy into doing it. Just do it! Walk into your office; open your computer and start.” ~ Jane Northcote, author of “Making Change Happen
