How To Start Writing a Book? 

Explore Your Idea

The first and foremost step is to have an interesting story, idea or topic on which you want to write a book. You need to explore ideas and ask yourself what is the one thing that interests you the most, and you can invest your time writing on it without backing out.


Once you have finalised the idea on which you’ll be writing a book, conducting research is a mandatory part of it. You can gather information by watching several interviews and meeting people related to that profession or if they are working in the concerned field or domain. Also, you can find book research methods in other books available in the market.

Outline Your Content

Have a brief idea of what table of contents you want to include in your book. This will make the task easy to understand, and you can focus on one topic at a time. Also, it will improve the book’s content structure.

Remove Your Distractions

For writing a book, you need a space that does not distract you in any way. It depends on different individuals and what might distract them. In general, you can find yourself a place that is quiet and soothes your mind so that you can stay focused

Divide Your Content 

Dividing your content helps you get an idea of the time, speed, and content you are writing. Divide your content into several drafts. After you finish the first draft, you might feel demotivated and need inspiration. You have to edit and revise the content. Do not have high expectations from your book, as it may lead to disappointment, and take one step at a time. Try not to procrastinate your work, as it will break the flow of the story and the content.

Think Like A Reader

While you start writing your book, think of yourself as a reader. This will allow you to cater for the readers and how they will think and feel when they read your book. It will provide you with numerous suggestions and improve your content writing skills. While writing dialogue for books, try to be creative and let your readers feel as if the characters are speaking out in real life.

Once you have finished writing your book, you’ll know it’s the right time to publish it. There are a lot of platforms out there that offer you services and allow you to self-publish your book. You don’t need to go to different publication houses to get the task done. One such platform is the Kindle, where people can publish and read online. 

Self-Publishing Tips

Here are some of the self-publishing tips that will help you save time, money and energy as well. Also, this will make your book a hit.

  • Editing your book makes it look more professional. You can hire a professional copy editor, or you can edit the grammatical errors and fix spelling mistakes by yourself.
  • The cover design of your book makes a huge difference. People say, ‘Don’t judge a book by its cover’ but it creates a first and lasting impression on the reader. Also, it becomes the identity of the story and the book. There are a lot of applications and tools available on the web through which you can design the cover of your book or hire a designer as well.
  • Promotion of the book is very crucial, as many of the books remain underrated because people don’t know about them and haven’t seen them on various platforms. You can promote your book on different social media platforms or use guerilla marketing techniques to boost sales and publicise the book.

Final Thoughts

Writing a book is a beautiful journey that takes a lot of effort, emotions and time. Apart from thinking of boosting sales or writing content for monetary benefits, you must be real and expressive. This will provide quality to the readers, and they will stick to you. The readers don’t just read the books; they connect with the author as well. Write books to create an impact and make them worth reading for the reader. Following the above-mentioned steps will help write the books the right way. However, a writer has his or her own style and methods to complete the book and cater to its readers, but this article might help you write better.
