What you need to Write a Book

All you need to write a book

It is also important to have a sense of how the novel should read. This is the episode for you if you ever felt you should write a book. Bestselling author Michael Port shows you how it works!

Q103 Should you be writing a book? {\a6} (If You Answer Your Do It. Here's How You Do It.)

00:02 Michael Port: I penned Beyond Booked Solids in 2005, I followed him with Beyond Booked Solids and The Contrarian Effect, then Think Big Manifesto, then a second issue of Books Yourself Solids, then a third issue of Books Yourself Solids, which was a completely different story named Books Yourself Solids Illustrated.

I' ve adopted the main ideas in Books Yourself Solids and worked with Jocelyn Wallace, a visionist, to turn them into illustration, so that I could edit about half the text and substitute pictures to make the footage even simpler to use. This was really a separate textbook in and of itself.

01:21 Michael Port: So in this installment I will do my best to say if you need a good audiobook to be a good talker, and I'll also talk about how to design, organize, distribute, and even promo. So, does it take a good read to be a succesful pro orator?

03:42 Michael Port: I don't think it makes much good to make a calling cards out of the way in which a person writes a big one, because I mean a really big one, a really big one, a really big one. A really big one.

So, a notebook never made much sense to me, a notebook on a week-end never made much difference to me. So why am I doing this script? Do I write this because I want to use it to create the plattform so that I can create more in-bound listings for those who want to buy my inboxes?

Does the businessmodel I'm creating build on what's in this one? It is a work I write because I want to get my mind or because I want to have a catholic adventure to write about my history? 05:30 Michael Port: So how do you design the structuring, publication and marketing of a bestseller?

Imagining a work is like beginning a talk. 06:40 Michael Port: There are a number of different frames that are often used in self-help and corporate helpers. They are not the only framework used, they are not the end of all the framework, but they are the framework with which you can start.

You can take them into the contents creation stage of the processes. 07:44 Michael Port: So one of the frames you often see is the numeric frame. It was Stephen Covey who composed a beautiful novel entitled The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. 08:30 Michael Port: You will often see timeline frames.

Her pregnancies every single fortnight is a chronicle. They really don't want to spend one of the third quarter reading before you start reading about the first quarter of the year. However, if you go away weekly, you will develop the skills you need to cope with your particular circumstances.

09:18 Michael Port: The modular frame is where you get a set of contents that you need to organise into a few different blocks. Helping to unravel some very big things that eventually work together, but to consum or digest them, it really does help to part them.

The structure of Beech Wood is based on a module. It has four add-ons in Booking Yourself Solids, and it is also in a sequential state. In this way you can create a combination of frames. 10:04 Michael Port: There is also a comparison and contrasting frame. It was Jim Collins who created a good to great title, a beautiful title, one of the best-selling accounts of our age.

10:52 Michael Port: There is also a problem-solving frame, another simple one. Well, a fellow of mine, Mitch Meyerson, years ago was writing a novel named Why Parents Love Too Much. Within each of these books you can use all these different frames. However, the actual volume will have a basic frame, and then perhaps a second one.

12:06 Michael Port: Well, the next thing you ask yourself is, how do you do it? 13:05 Michael Port: The next big thing is: In which line of work are you an writer? Because when you ask people, they usually say, "Well, I write a book.

" Usually, this is the best way to do this, but this date and time for most poeple in our profession, if you are an writer, you are really in the trade of product commerce, not type. Though of course authoring the script is part of this whole thing. This is how we have to think like experts in the market from the very beginning.

Part of this branding and sales proces is the decision what kind of publishing house you will be. 14:24 Michael Port: Like when I began to write in 2005, it was a completely different scenery, self-publishers weren't taken seriously for the most part, you either posted or you died. Mike Michalowicz, my boyfriend with whom I run a annual spiritual retreat, did both, but now he is publishing his work first.

He actually did publish his last volume himself, made it a smash and subsequently resold it to a publishing house and reissued it. 15:41 Michael Port: Number two: You are not tied to a treaty or a time limit, and therefore it will probably take longer for you to finish writing the script, and you can reprint it without it being your turn.

There is no one to keep you on course and force you to enhance the standard of the work, no doorman, like a conventional publishers where you have an editorial staff who says: "No, no, no, you have to close this one. are you the manufacturer, the author, the publisher, you are the issuer, the marketing specialist, the whole thing, then you might want to think about where your strength lies and ask if self-publication is the best choice.

If you ask yourself, you will be able to thoroughly succeed without having to sign a deal with someone who has prepaid you for the books and is awaiting the books to be shipped to you that date, and if you do not ship to the books that date, there will be repercussions.

17:11 Michael Port: I run several shops, I guess I'm quite full, the timetable and authoring a script take me a long while, so it will take me a few lessons a day to spend six or eight month typing. 18:23 Michael Port: But there are also dangers in the field of publication.

Perhaps you have a disagreement with your publishers or publishers regarding your styles, tones, material contents, styles of typing, mock-up. Often, when you work with a publishing company, you have to go through a vivid creation to make a front page for yourself and yourself, if you don't like it, you have to show them why it should be different.

19:39 Michael Port: I often need these external powers to show why my thoughts are the ones we should be following. You may need assistance now. So you' re going to need an editor, you' re going to need a development journalist, you' re going to need a proof reader, an interiors lay-out expert, a coversigner, a printing co-ordinator, a mailroom manager, a journalist, maybe, although I generally don't suggest a journalist for writers, unless you have the best journalist in the game.

21:29 Michael Port: If you want to be published by a specialist publishing house, you probably need a substitute. So there are a bunch of issues that should be addressed before delving deeply into the whole thing, because we haven't even reached the point of market. It was also to be handmade.

This should be integrated into the entire authoring experience, because if you're in the authoring industry, you're really in the market. How does your marketing-plan look like? You' re probably gonna want to begin with a year. When you promote the textbook, what kind of freebies will you make?

23:00 Michael Port: Probably 10 guys working on this one. I did so at my first start when I was still..... In 2005 I was only in the shop for two years at that age. 25:13 Michael Port: So it is a little like this, and it often takes longer to bear a books than a baby, but there are many things in common.

" This is an alibi we often use because we do not want to do it now, we do not want to do the work, we are scared of the work, we do not even know whether we can deal with the work, or we do not really know how to do it, we are not prepared to take the associated dangers.

26:22 Michael Port: So the reply to the first one at the beginning is still the same. There''s no way to do it, and no, you don't have to have a script to be a pro but it can certainly be very useful, especially if your script is actually a bestseller, and when I say bestseller I mean on the New York Times mailing lists, the Wall Street Journal mailing lists, USA Today mailing lists, Publishers Weekly mailing lists, etc.).

26:57 Michael Port: Thank you for your tim. If you want to make a good booking yourself, it's a great reading for you.
