Many will find the prospect of creating an ebook quite daunting, often because the most they have ever written is 4-500 word blog posts.
There are a number of different ideas and philosophies that will help you to overcome the curtain that draws down and prevents you from attempting to create a product, but one method I read about recently really struck me as being a great way to approach this task, especially if you are struggling with the idea.
I have been reading Paul Wolfe’s blog for some time now and was particularly taken with this post that documents what Paul calls ‘the outline and bundle method‘. This method involves writing what are basically short articles, or posts, and linking them together to create a longer document, or ebook.
Not long after I read this post a good friend of mine, Barry Wells, launched his latest ebook, ‘From Passion To Product‘ and I had the opportunity of reading a review copy. Barry really does explain the process of creating an ebook so very clearly, with many helpful hints and suggestions, even offering to help, if you need it, at the end of his book!
If you are struggling with the thought of writing a long document just break it down into smaller chunks then link them together. It makes the task much easier to handle.
