How hard is it to write a book?

Writing a book is all about discipline. The discipline to research your audience and subject before you even put pen to paper. What is the story you want to tell? Is your story something other people are interested in?

Once you have a fair idea of the story line you simply start writing. Doesn’t matter if it is good or bad, just write. Get into the habit of writing. Have a notebook with you at all times so you can write down things you see or notice that may play a part in your book (or perhaps even the next book).

Write every day – try for a set number of words each day – set a goal and stick to it. When you commit to 2000 words every day you will have the first draft of your book finished in just over a month (assuming you aim for approximately 70,000 words).

Two thousand words is not a lot. This article alone is already 160 words to this point. You can write 2000 words every day, the most important thing is to keep writing. Think of it as going to the mental gym. Rather than working out physically to improve your muscle strength, you do a daily workout of your writing muscles.
