Over the last few months during the launch of Bold, Fierce and Transformed, I have been asked on numerous occasion what I did to finish the book. This question has come up so often I thought maybe there are hundreds if not thousands of people wanting to write a book but unable to get it done. I want to help you! Here are a few of my suggestions: (FYI: I am NOT an expert, this is my first book, just my suggestions...proceed)
1.) VOMIT ON THE PAPER: I know that sounds completely gross, but seriously. Don't worry about the spelling and grammar right now, just get out what you want to say. Don't even worry about the flow, just write until you have nothing else to say.
2.) Write until your fingers fall off. Not literally, but it's a continuation of the vomiting process that I spoke about above.
3.) Make an outline. When I started writing, I started with an outline, then I vomited on the paper. So I guess the number one should be 1a. ;-)
4.) Set a day and time that you will write and STICK TO IT! For me, I set aside Wednesday nights. I normally would go to bible study, but for a while, I got bible study on DVD and let this be the night God spoke to me through writing.
5.) Edit, Edit, Edit.....did I say EDIT!! Once you are done writing, edit the book until perfection. My book went through 2 professional edits and 3 personal edits. Even after all that, I still think it could have gone through more edits. Don't slack in this area....make it right!! Write? ;-/
6.) Make sure that GOD is getting the glory in the book and not yourself. It's about Him at the end of the day.
That's all for now...I'll post more later! Love ya'll!
