   First Lines

 
The only
purpose of
the first line
of anything
you write is to
get the reader
to read the
second line.

   

   Outlining

    
Always outline
    your book before
    you start to
   write. This will
  eliminate writers
   block and create
   a template for
 your book.



  Writing

     Write your first
   draft all the way
     through. Do not
     stop to edit or
    change anything.
  Do not read
 what you
  just wrote.



   Stories

     Use stories
    in all of your
     non-fiction
  writing to create
 the emotional
 impact that sells
 your ideas and
   products.



   The Lesson

    Always end your
     book with a
   lesson or call to
   action. Tell your
 readers what
  to do with the information
 they just learned.

 


   Kinds of
   Writing

 
There are only
two kinds of
 writing.

Boring
and
Interesting


   First Drafts

   
Give yourself
   permission to
   write a very bad
   first draft. You
will fix it when
you write the
second draft.
 


     Repurposing

   
Use blog posts,
   articles, posts
   on Twitter,
   and newsletters
   as the basis
   for chapters
    in your book.
 


   Personalize

 
  Make sure your
   personality
   comes through
   in your book.
   The reader wants
  your opinions on
  the material
   you present.


   Audiences

 
  Write to the
  targeted
  audience of
  your choice.
 They will be the
 most receptive
 and may become
 your clients.
