How to Write a Non- Fiction Book in 2020
Writing your book is a fabulous thing. However, it is sad to say that most people have great ideas to compile in a book yet are not able to continue throughout the process. And yes, writing a book is a “Process”. According to some best-selling authors worldwide, coming up with a story idea is quite easy but keeping your motivation and dedication until your writing finished is far more difficult.

Whether you are writing a short story, a novel, an eBook or another type of book, the progress is centred on a few facts such as your motivation, dedication and continuous interest. Eventual loss of these facts would keep your half-written book with no progress and it is something that definitely should not happen. Here are a few tips on how to write a book in 2020 although you have an idea for a book in your mind or not (get an idea after reading if you don’t have!).
1. An idea for a book
Many of us have that intention to write a book. The problem is we think that coming up with an idea is difficult and confusing. The most common reason for such feelings is that you are ignoring what you already know and consider what you don’t know! Every one of us has fields we know well. It might be an idea for a story, about cooking, fitness, nutrition, fashion, beauty tips, and relationships, about life or how to face challenges in life. Sharing your experiences and give some insight for others to look at life with a different opinion is one such idea to compile in a book if you haven’t thought about it so far! Just think about yourself, what you know, it can be academic or non-academic, be ready to start writing your book after writing this guide!
Friends, we highly encourage you to do something different, something helpful to others in the New Year…
2. Have a plan
Everything needs a plan! Set a rough idea about the word count of your book. If you are writing a book with a big word count, set how many chapters you want to write, how the chapters should be separated, and the transition between each chapter (which is a quality of a well-written book).
The organization of the book is crucial to have a polished completion in the outcome. If you are writing a book without a story idea, be sure to organize an outline of what you will be writing in the book. It will help you stay within the frame and focused on the book content through the process. A good plan is a win!
3. Think about the audience
Selecting the audience is important when writing any type of book. It helps to determine how deep you expect to research before writing the content. The audience can be selected according to the criteria such as age, gender, education, or profession, etc.
4. Prepare your mind for the long term journey
Writing a book is a process as we already mentioned above. It consists of a series of steps that will result in the smooth progress of your book. The process may take time to complete writing. You have to understand that the book writing process is not going to be ended up in a few days or a week. Prepare your mind and you will not get the feeling to stop writing in the middle of the process.
5. Prepare a suitable environment to write
The surrounding where we write our book significantly affects the smooth flow of ideas and for a calm mind. Be sure you write your book sitting in the same room, the same place. This seems like a fact that is not essential. But it reminds you of your commitment to writing the book when you enter the same place every day.
6. Write every day!
Remember that you don’t have to write too much. You have to write often!
Have a word count to write every day and try to accomplish that goal. The more often you write, the sooner you complete writing the book. In this way, you can estimate the time taken for you to finish writing the book (because you have the total word count).
7. Get feedback
Something hurts more than writing a book and trying to edit it afterwards when you won’t let anyone glance at it. Get a few trustworthy advisors to help you decide what the writing is worth. These may be colleagues, relatives, reporters. Try to find someone early on to send you honest feedback and make sure you’re heading in the right direction.
8. Set weekly goals
Different book writers recommend setting monthly goals and weekly goals but our recommendation is to set your goals according to the volume of the book estimated. If the book is large and supposed to contain long chapters, it is a wise decision to set monthly goals.
9. Publish your book
Your book is done by this point— thank you! That you have already done something that other people are never likely to do.
But you have not yet started. Not completely. But you still need to publish your book to be successful; to increase your followers, profits, and impact.
Sadly, this whole “release” aspect has never been worked out by most people who are successful in writing books. They publish their book on Amazon despite even making a plan, and as a consequence, they get very little orders, earn almost no profits, and are disappointed with the lack of attention to their job.
Publishing books in Amazon is a good option but you have to master how to sell more copies of your book with some marketing strategies. You can do some social media marketing to reach the audience of your book. There are many other ways so do your research to obtain maximum profit from your efforts. We highly encourage you to try something new in the coming year, 2020. If you are the one who had an idea to write a book in 2019, get some insights from this guide and be a successful author in 2020.
