How can I Write a BookCan I write a book?
Like writing a book: Mystery of a super-fast first draft
I will teach you the skills and skills to create 36,000 words in two short periods of a week, saving you valuable learning experience and achieving up to 180 words per second. I will also cover strategy to move you forward, so type your text quickly without grappling. We' re testing a new poster layout, and we're using a 2015 tutorial to test and review the first design of your work.
I have always struggled to get books written. Continue reading to see how I wrote over 36,000 words in the first two words of 2015, which I have been using with great interest ever since. I will also give you a utility that will save me so much of my own valuable working hours and help me reach up to 180 words per second.
It' such a big work. It' really fun, because I can post a 3,000 or 4,000 words post in just a few lessons, but when it comes to composing a textbook, I fight a heap. So I have a few blank pages on my computer, in Scrivener, which is the tools I use to help me compose them.
It' a great instrument - the why these ledgers weren't ready was because I just couldn't do it. I' d be blocking four or five hour daytime, just sitting in front of my computer and finishing my script or at least working on it, resulting in an additional 300 words for four-hour work.
Many of you I also know, like me, the feeling that you have a whole bunch of textbooks in you. So, I'm going to show you a book-writing technology that has transformed my lifestyle in the area of production. I' ve used it to create my work Will Itly? I' ve adopted this technology from many other people' s strategy and advice for authoring and it' s something that many other have used: it's a great technique:
Me-mail-it notes. Because you can postpone and do it. I will show you how to create your next notebook using Post-it Notes and how you can reach unbelievable words per minutes in relation to the speed at which you are writing your work.
I' ll also show you some utilities I've used with my Post-it memos, as well as some specific things you can do when it comes to where your Post-it memos are that will help you create a book like no other. First thing to do is get some post-it notices. Because you' re only gonna put a word or two on it.
You want to choose a colour - I begin with neongreen and simply begin to use it. Simply begin with everything that comes to your minds when it comes to the books you want to type, put them down and glue them to the surfaces you are working on, whether it's a desktop, a white board or some other one.
One thing I always speak about on the blogs is flying, and that's something I know a little about. I will show you how to begin compiling my theoretical guide using the example of flying. You' ll see, when you begin to put all your thoughts on this plank you're working on with these Post-it notes, you can move things.
Then, the sections and sub-sections begin to be formed that will help to establish what becomes your outlines. That' s why I like Post-it notes, because you can move them to different places. Well, fly-fishing. I' ll choose a rose touch and put "fly fishing" on it. This is the best way to make sure you are writing everything that comes to your minds; there are no regulations here.
Who else do you think you're talking about? I also know different kinds of angling, i.e. brown-fishing and bassfishing. "I know a little about insect hunting, but I'm not a shyster. As I was composing my last volume, the desk was full of notices. "What else does it matter?
Let's see, "fly fish for children" and maybe "target areas". Obviously I shouldn't do this on insect angling, and I'm not going to be releasing a cover on insect angling any day soon, but you'll get what I'm doing here briefly. "I' m going to do it again. Here you should have a whole plank or a whole desktop full of Post-it notes.
Next you want to start looking at all so you can begin to bind them together. Remove and move them to different locations by organising them into groups that make a difference to you. You will see that your mind is just beginning to organise it. And then I have behavior patterns like "etiquette" and "time flying" and maybe "throwing techniques" over here.
" I can then begin to build a hierarchical structure to see that this is "equipment" and "clothing" here, and then things to take with you when you go, and then more "fishing equipment" here that you need before you go out. I can already see a section here, and then the sub-chapters that happen in this section.
I' m getting organized again; I' m beginning to shape my work. What about "fishing equipment" like "rods" and "reels" and "flies"? What you can then do is extract a different colour and begin to build a second or third layer within it. Here, too, you begin to write your section on "Flying", and then there are perhaps two different "nymph" under "Nymph".
There are also two different types of fly, so I'll make one for "dry" ones - those are flying that swim - and then "wet" flying - those are the ones that sank. I will then use a different colour to make another layer and "when to use it".
You' ll see how I begin to organize everything; I begin at the very top. I' m gonna pack things up, and then I' m gonna get something out of here. This will help me determine what my sections are, in which order everything should be, what my sub-sections and my sub-sections are.
What I usually do when I begin to build this sequence of occurrences here and organise them in a sequence is to begin from above. I' m pulling out these Post-it memos and putting them on my other table. That' when I begin to write about this particular subject.
Anything else on the first table is still there, but I don't focus on it because I only write this small part. That'?s something I fought with when I was typing my own work. So I imagined the whole thing and thought about every other part of the script and how it would behave.
You add more words every now and then you will have got over all those post-it notices. You' re starting to make headway, and that's absolutely motivational. You' ve made your Post-it memos, and you' ve begun to see what happens in your textbook in relation to the structure and chapter, subsections and small parts in each of these parts.
It' now it is to begin to write. As I said, you'll extract small pieces. For example, I could extract the section on "Fishing Tournaments", and there is probably another tournament hierarchical structure within that tournament. And now that you know that you are concentrating on this subject, you can begin to write about it, and your brain is only concentrating on this subject.
Well, for me it would still be a fight to write and type all that at this point. I' m a little more concentrated than before, but my brain still gets into edit modus when I'm in front of a computer. This works for blogs, but when I write a script, it gets a lot more difficult for me in the ment.
Well, the best thing I know if you want to improve your typing performance is to "puke" what's in your skull. Later you can come in and work and move things around, and you're probably not going to use much what you record, but what comes out when your mind is in active modus is going to be extremely good for your work.
Well, the big ploy I use and the application I use to get very high words per minutes is Rev. In the last two years I was able to finish the first cerebral dive of each of my textbooks.
They can' t even really be called sketches, because they are all in my head about those particular subjects, about those post-it notes, all of which are dictio. Actually, they are 95 per cent dicted because I begin to write on the computer, but then I go to Rev what changed the world. I then go through the story a second times, with a little edit modus in my head, and I can form and move things and create these tales in a way that makes perfect sense when reading a work.
It won't make sence for a textbook if it comes from your own voices, but you can get so many astonishing tales and songs out of your textbook through your oration. Get all your brains about your idea about your books on Post-it Notes. Slide them, organise them, form them and arrange them to look like a chapter or subchapter or part of a chapter and so on.
Extract single tracks and speak about these things, then take them in. It' all right if you don't want to; you can do it. Have that post-it notice there that you're concentrating on is gonna help a lot. Happy birthday, and I trust it will be useful for those of you who are working on your first (or next) work!
