How To Write Your eBook


If you're going to create an eBook, then sooner or later it's likely (not necessarily required) that you are going to have to do some writing.

Now, the best approach to writing is going to depend on you.

Personally I find the best way is to research everything before hand, plan out roughly (an outline) what I'm going to write, and then just sit down and start writing - and keep writing until I'm either exhausted or I've finished.

If you follow my approach, then I can pretty much guarantee that you can finish, just keep going.
  • When writing your first draft, just write as much as you can as quickly as you can.

  • Don't worry about grammar, phrasing, repetition, etc. Just keep going. If you don't know what to write - don't stop - just type "I don't know what to write" until you do - it won't be long before your mind forces you to start writing something else.

  • Don't worry at all about layout or getting stuff into the right program - just write in your word processor or whichever program you can use most easily.

  • When you're done with your first draft - there's a massive sense of achievement. Actually, you're probably only half way through the project, as you will need to spend a lot of type editing, rephrasing etc., but the sense of achievement gives you a big morale boost that will motivate you to keep going.

  • Once you have all the text of the first draft, the rest is fairly straightforward, just gradually organize and edit the text (if you're making an HTML eBook you can copy it from your Word Processor to your HTML documents bit by bit as you edit).
You can do it - the trick is to be motivated and stay motivated - and for me at least, a fast pace helps.

At some point in the process (in the second half if you do it the same way as me), you will need to make sure the text is clear and readable:
  • Use your Word Processor's spell checker.

  • Check your grammar.

  • Use dictionaries.

  • Try to use short sentences.

  • The more complex an idea, the simpler terms you should use to explain it.

  • Don't forget you can use pictures, etc.

  • After you finished editing, leave it for a couple of days, then proof read the eBook all the way through. You'll be surprised at the number of mistakes you'll spot.

  • Ask a friend, family member, or business associate to proof-read your work as well.
