WHAT TO WRITE AND WHEN TO WRITE?
So the other day I got a question from some of you about what to write and when to write.
When having a dream about becoming an author and publishing a book, doesn’t always equals that you know exactly what to write about or when to write it - and that is okay!
The most important part of the process is to plant a seed and thereby grow a dream. Because, everything in this wild world (almost) starts with having a dream, that eventually can take root and grow into what you have imagined it to be.
But here’s my advice for you on that:
1. Try different book ideas out. Write them down, work on them, pitch them, be open about them and start a dialogue with relevant people about them (ex publishers and so on) Because by trying different ideas out and going for them, will lead you in the right direction of what the right book idea will be for you. Because you gain experience by trying and therefore getting more awareness on what’s working and what’s not working.
2. See if you can sell the book idea to a publisher house and sign the contract based on the IDEA and not the whole script. Your time is precious and you better use it right. When you have a signed contract, you can start a dialogue with your publisher house which will help you out with the ‘when’ to write it.
This is my opinion and what I’ve done with both of my books, but that doesn’t mean that’s the final and correct approach.
What’s your approach on this?
