How To Write A Book Without Writing

The question I get asked a lot is “How Do You Write A Book?” or more specifically “How Do You Find Time to Write A Book?”
The truth of the matter is that I do not like writing and actually people in general tend to write a lot more than I do! However, I ensure that the little I write is stored in a journal. A dark blue electronic journal called a WORDPRESS BLOG SITE…and herein lies the secret of writing a book without really writing…
On a daily basis we are almost certain to do 3 things…talk, read and write. The last thing is the most important. If you take all the comments, notes, status updates you have made on facebook and other social media sites (including emails) you will begin to realize that every single one of us has written multiple books without ever realizing it! The issue is that our writings are either scattered all over the place or outright ignored!
The dark blue journal I mentioned above is a free WORDPRESS blog site, which I have used for 3 years to store all my relevant writings. For instance, If I give a substantial amount of financial advice on facebook I store it on my blog site. If I wake up with a lengthy thought in my head I store it on my site. I have made this a habit and over time I have accumulated so many articles, which I have used as the foundation for my first ever book HOW STUPIDITY SAVED MY LIFE. Although I had to rewrite a lot of articles I had enough words that would enable me to begin writing a book without starring at a blank piece of paper.
If you decide to use the advice above, I recommend the following free blog sites:
You can use any of the sites above as your collection point for all your daily writing. If you make this a consistent habit your blog articles will start developing a uniform theme and one day you will wake up with enough material to carve out a book.
