Now that I shared with you in my last post the first step you should take to write a great book I’ll share the second step. Here you want to put the information you gathered away for a day or two. When you come back to it, it should look something like this:
Once you start seeing a better landscape of other books out there you get a better idea of where to position your book. This process is about slowing down to speed up the creation of a well positioned book.
Additionally, it’s not all an intellectual journey. My husband who is also a creative and working on his second book, shared his comments from my last blog stating that I should share more about the feelings around writing a book not just the intellectual aspects. Having a process for positioning your book like the one I offer, above, does include a feeling element. I am intuitive, very intuitive many would say. I go through one reader review after another looking for reviewers who are so passionate about their opinions and share them with great insight. I always have my passion meter running and I can tell what books are engaging and inspiring and enlightening.
So, go out and discover where your book belongs . . . because it does belong. You just need to figure out where and that will make all the difference.
