How to write a book

Today is “Speak in Complete Sentences” day. So, in honor of that, here’s my take on how to write a book.

For years and years I have assured aspiring authors wanting to write a book, first-time authors wanting to write a sequel, and other authors simply wanting to get a backlist out there, that there is only one way to write a book. BICFOK.
Butt In Chair, Fingers On Keyboard.

It doesn’t matter if you write a sentence, a paragraph, a page, or a thousand words. You are that sentence, paragraph, page or thousand words closer to achieving your goal.

Today I read the most amazing article that explains everything so much better than I ever could.
Read it. Absorb it. Follow its advice.
And get that book written!
