The Busy Woman's Guide to Writing a World-Changing Book (Paperback)
A book is a passion shared. It says, "Here's my stake in the world. Here's what I believe. Here's what I want to give to the world." Writing a book is a bold undertaking, and during the process, no one escapes fear and self-doubt about their work. No matter how smart and accomplished you are, you'll be asking yourself, "Can I do this? Will it be good enough?"
Believe it or not, your book can make a difference--even change the world--but only if you write it. The Busy Woman's Guide to Writing a World-Changing Book will help you navigate the emotional labor of committing your ideas to paper.
Other books may try to tell you how to "do" your book: you must complete A, B and C in a specific way, on a certain schedule. But rigid approaches don't work for busy women immersed in running businesses, building art careers, caring for families and loved ones...or all of the above. Structure and flexibility are required.
This book is different. It will show you how to set up a writing practice so you can write your book on your schedule, no matter how busy you are. Cynthia shows you the ins and outs of writing a non-fiction book including how to:
Gather your focus so you can drop into your writing easily
Pull your ideas into an outline that will help you write
Stay on track, even when the process becomes overwhelming
Get back in the groove when life interrupts your flow
Overcome the obstacles waiting just before the finish line
Enjoy the process, in your way, in your time.
