Writing Hack #15 of 33 Writing Hacks for Aspiring Authors Craving to Publish
This writing hack is based on the famous quote, “How do you eat an elephant?” You eat it one bite at a time. How do you write a book? You write it one chapter at a time. Now that you have created a table of contents and have thought of some great ideas for chapters, you will easily be inspired to write a chapter or two.
Sometimes a chapter can be found out of nowhere! You may have written an article or an entry in a journal or something else that can be transformed into a chapter to fit into your table of contents. Often, one chapter will naturally lead to the next and will give you an idea and inspiration for the chapter that should follow. And before you know it, if you continue to write daily and stimulate your creative juices, your book will be complete.
Simply by writing that first chapter, you are now in the process of writing a book. As soon as you successfully complete one chapter, repeat the process as soon as possible, and make it a habit. This is where all well-known published authors started their writing career. Congratulations! You have started to write that book you have always dreamed of writing!
