Have you been guilty of procrastinating on your book project, lately? Like the author, many writers get hung up with wrong thinking about writing and completing their books. Knowledge and know-how can be formed into nine easy steps that will destroy the power of procrastination.


Write your best book now! Have you been guilty of procrastinating on your book project, lately? Like the author, many writers get hung up with wrong thinking about writing and completing their books.

Knowledge and know-how can be formed into nine easy steps that will destroy the power of procrastination. Using the amazingly easy steps below writers can conquer the giant procrastination and speedily write their best book now:

1. Act Now. Action will paralyze fear each and every time. Too many of us for too long have hid behind the words, "It's too hard." Now is the time to take charge of our fears and conquer them. First things first, to overcome procrastination (the fear of failure) is to act now. Most times the bottom line of procrastination is fear of failure.

2. Avoid marathon writing. Know you don't have to become a hermit to write and complete a successful book. People accomplish it every day because they systematically work on their book until it's done. In the midst of your busy life, designate your time to write (work on your book) with a goal to completion. (reasonable time to completion)

3. Commit to the tracking approach. Doing a set amount even if it's only an hour- each day builds a cumulative effect. I can't keep up with where I am after interruptions of life. It is a common challenge to find your place after being interrupted with family, work and daily life. After all that's why many think you must get away to get it done effectively.

Yet, there's hope for those who can't get away or choose not to. Successful writers all over the world use the tracking approach. They succeed because they commit to doing a little each day.

4. Know you don't have to write chapters in order. You can jump around and fill in the blanks to gain momentum. Review your chapters and whatever subject or topic you most drawn to, begin there. Many inexperienced writers feel they have to complete each chapter in order.

It's called linear writing (writing each chapter in order.) You don't have to write each chapter one after the other. If you happen to get stuck on chapter two, you could be stuck a very long time.

5. Maintain your momentum. Unseasoned writers may play the martyr and push through just to put something on paper or give up and try again another day. We would never get it done like that.

When you get stuck simply close that chapter; pull out your chapter outline and choose another chapter. Don't give in to writers block. Move on to work on the chapter you feel passion bubbling for at that moment.

Even so, nothing can happen until that first draft is completed. Procrastination is ultimately based on fear of failure. It has stopped countless of book projects and stolen the vision of many more. Don't allow procrastination to become a giant towering over your book dreams.

Go now; sign-up for a free course, pin-point your topic, write your table of contents or simply write your first draft. Whatever you do, do it now and release your important message to the world. Best wishes for your greatest success yet.
