How to Write a Book

Once the idea for a good book hits you, what do you do with it? Before you jump into our Top 5 tips, keep in mind that this is a very general overview of the process that takes you from Idea to Editor. We have an entire Master Course to walk you through each step you'll read below.


Writing a book involves several steps:

  1. Identify the Reader's Outcome then create an outline to organize the book's content.

  2. Write a rough draft, focusing on getting the ideas down on paper.

  3. Revise and edit the draft, making sure the content is clear, well-organized, and free of errors.

  4. Repeat steps 3 and 4 as many times as necessary.

  5. Once the book is complete, consider hiring a professional editor or proofreader to review the final draft.

It sounds easy in theory, but only 4% of people who begin to write a manuscript, successfully complete it. Yes, four percent! Don't underestimate the importance of a consistent writing schedule, setting writing goals, and taking breaks to avoid burnout.


Think of writing a book as the literary equivalent of running a marathon. Slow and steady wins the race. Remember that writing a book is a process that will take time, so be prepared for revisions and editing, and find some support to check in with you along the way.
