1. Hire a ghostwriter. If you have the content in your head, or know what you want your book to be about – perhaps, you could hire a ghostwriter to do the writing for you. This will get the book moving along and you’ll have it completed with little effort on your part. The is the best solution if “time” is the biggest issue.
2. Put together an anthology. An anthology, like Speaking Your Truth, is a great start to entering the book world. It’s easier than writing all of the material yourself, but rest assured there’s a lot of coordination and hard work that still goes into the process. This is a great solution if “writing” seems to be the hardest part.
3. Hire support. If you have a manuscript sitting in a computer folder or stuffed away in a desk drawer, hire some help in getting it out into the world. There are many people, including ourselves, that offer services to see your book to print. This is the best option if “procrastination” is wearing your down.
4. Find a mentor or a coach. If you just need a little accountability, a few pushes and shoves in the right direction – perhaps find a trusted adviser that can keep you moving forward. This is best if “fear” is the cause of the procrastination, or if you simply feel as though don’t have the tools and resources to get your book done.
5. Join a writing group. A writing group can be a great way to stay motivated, have accountability, and also be surrounded with a group of like-minded people of similar interests. This is perfect for those that feel writing is a “lonely” job and love collaboration and community.
