you want to write a book. Becoming an author can change your life—not to mention give you the ability to impact thousands, even millions, of people.
However, writing a book is no cakewalk. As a 21-time New York Times bestselling author, I can tell you: It’s far easier to quit than to finish.
When you run out of ideas, when your own message bores you, or when you become overwhelmed by the sheer scope of the task, you’re going to be tempted to give up.
But what if you knew exactly:
Where to start…
What each step entails…
How to overcome fear, procrastination, and writer’s block…
And how to keep from feeling overwhelmed?
You can do this—and more quickly than you might think, because these days you have access to more writing tools than ever. The key is to follow a proven, straightforward, step-by-step plan.
My goal here is to offer you that plan.
I’ve used the techniques I outline below to write more than 190 books (including the Left Behind series) over the past 40 years. Yes, I realize averaging over four books per year is more than you may have thought humanly possible. But trust me—with a reliable blueprint, you can get unstuck and finish your book.
This is my personal approach to how to write a book. I’m confident you’ll find something here that can change the game for you. So, let’s jump in.
