How to Write An eBook in a Week

June 11, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 159

Before I give you the steps to writing an eBook in a week, I want to state that there are 3 limitations. If you want to write an eBook in a week, you MUST solve these limitations. If you cannot, your eBook writing time will be prolonged by the extent that you do not address and solve these limitations.

1) You must know what you are going to write about. Meaning that if you are writing about something you don't know anything about, you will have to add research time to your time frame. That means that if it takes you one month to learn what you are going to write, then it will take you one month + 1 week to write your eBook, not just one week.

2) You must be able to type at 20 words per minute, yielding 1200 words per hour.

3) You must be able to write for 10 hours at 1200 words per hour to write a 12,000 word eBook. If you want to write a 24,000 word eBook, you will have to work 20 hours. And if you type at 40 words per minute, and work for 20 hours, then you can write a 48,000 word eBook.

This understanding of your writing speed and time you put in is critical for getting to a certain amount of writing per week. It is kind of like if you are going to drive 500 miles. If you drive 50 miles per hour, you can get there is 10 hours. If you drive 5 miles an hour (like on a bicycle) it will take you 100 hours. It is the same thing with writing. If you type slow, your eBook will take longer. If you type less than 20 words per minute, I suggest taking a typing class. It will pay off in huge multiples in the long run.

So now that we have the limitations out of the way, let's talk about actually writing the book.

The first step is an outline. I suggest writing out 10 - 12 topics that you want to include in your eBook. Then under each topic, write 10 - 12 steps or ideas that you want to teach on for each topic. This will give you a total of 100 - 144 steps or ideas to write about. If you write just 1 page per step, you will have 100 pages. If each page is 250 words, you will have 25,000 words. At 20 words per minute, that is about 22 hours of writing, plain and simple.

It is key that you break this into these small steps. Think about it - once you have your 100 ideas to write about - this gets really easy. Because you can easily write 250 words about any idea, right? Think about this article - one idea, 492 words. Just think about writing 100 articles, 250 words at a time.
