Organize and Write Your Book Tonight

Professional women, are you ready to write a book about your business or leadership experiences? Maybe you want to write a book to promote your special cause or non-profit organization? Maybe you want to record your professional memoirs? No matter the reason, writing your book will not be difficult once you get your thoughts organized and ready to put on paper. Follow these 7 simple steps and get your professional book going quickly.

1. List Your Thoughts
Are your ideas all over the place? Does your mind feel jumbled with everything you want to write? Slow it down by writing out lists of ideas you have on book topics. Once you write the list, go through and categorize them into topic areas. For instance, say you want to write about when you traveled through Europe with a backpack and became a travel agent? Maybe you’re ready to share lessons about your participation in protests or voting events in the 60’s and how it led to your political career? Perhaps you want to write about a hobby such as gardening or golf? Just go ahead and put the topics your interested in into categories.

2. Add to the Categories
Add additional information to each category. You might have a long list by now. Of all the topics you have, select the one that excites you the most or that you feel you have the most material on and focus on that one to start. Put all of the information for that topic on a separate paper so you can concentrate on that for your eBook.

3. Select the Chapter Headings
Out of the information in each of the lists you created, select a topic that will serve as a chapter heading. Take the strongest and most focused statement to serve as chapter heading. This will help you focus your chapters. Put everything you listed about that that topic into logical sections or an outline to form the chapters of your book.

4. Organize Chapters
Be sure the topics you listed underneath each chapter heading make senses to go with that topic. You can adjust this list later as needed. Put the information in logical order as you would find in a table of contents in a book. Pull out one of your favorite books to serve as a model or guide.

5. Fill in Chapter Material
Start to write subtopics in each section. Write as much as you know without having to think too hard. When you have exhausted what you already know, you might already have enough for a book. If not, research additional information or ideas to add. Go online and pull up the years you are talking about. Look for historical information from that time period to trigger more memoirs. Put in some more facts and information.

6. Keep It Focused
Your Book does not have to be lengthy. Some books by professional authors and leaders are only 50 to 75 pages. That is not very much writing. In fact, with 40 pages of writing, a front cover, table of contents, dedication page and disclaimer and copyright page and you have your 50 page Book ready to go.

7. Write the Introduction and Summary
Introduce the topic of each chapter with a two to three sentence introduction and write a summary for each chapter of the same length. Be sure the introduction provides teaser information that makes readers desire to keep reading. The summary should not introduce new materials but summarize the primary focus of the chapter.

Professional women with years of business and leadership experience have some of the most exciting first-hand experiences to share with others. Forget the excuses about not being able to write your book. As you put these ideas into place you will see how simple it is to get an book written in a very short period of time. You just have to get started to make it a reality.

Write Web Articles That Work For You

Learn to write good web articles and you will be able to gain publicity for your online business or offline business. But just writing the article isn’t enough. You also have to know what to do with them. This includes writing articles and submitting them to reprint directories.

Website owners and bloggers visit article directory sites to access free content for their own sites. When they publish an web article you have submitted, they will include a link back to your site, which will drive a lot of traffic to you.

You can find many article reprint directories on the web. A few to try are www.ladypens.com, www.isnare.com and www.articlepros.com. To find more, simply perform a Google search using the term “article reprint directory.”

Some sites require you to register with them before you can submit an article, while some do not. Each site will have its own specific guidelines as to the type of articles they will accept. Make sure you familiarize yourself with each site’s specific instructions.

 You will see a link on the site that says something to the effect of “submit your article” or “add your article.” When you click that link, you will be sent to a page containing a form that will allow you to copy and paste your article. You will also enter personal information, such as your name. Some people use their real name and some chose to use a fake name, also known as a pen name.

Always take good advantage of the area titled “author bio box” or “reference box.” This is where you can put detailed information about you, your website or speciality. The website owner or blogger who publishes your article will include the information you include, so make sure you include some information about your website and your URL.

If the article you are submitting refers to information found on a specific page of your website, refer to that page. For example, if you are submitting an article about online marketing send the readers to www.yourname.com/onlinemarketing instead of just a general domain. 

This will allow you to receive highly targeted traffic which will increase your affiliate conversion rates and profits. Use web article writing to increase your online marketing and you will have a key to great internet marketing.
