What is a Cool Website any Aspiring Entrepreneur Can Use Right Now to get
Better Results with Internet Marketing?

Websites are important in today’s world for most entrepreneurs. Those include websites of their own, and they include websites that are great resources for building their businesses.

A Cool Website
A Cool Website

The video below welcomes you to another session of walking with Randy, which are Facebook Live videos, and later YouTube videos,where we discuss writing, speaking, coaching, and marketing tips. In this one we talk about marketing.

The Resource

I will get right to the heart of the matter. The cool website I want to mention today is called “Wealthy Affiliate.”

Become a Wealthy Affiliate

Now I will give you full disclosure: Some of the links on my website are affiliate links, and I have an affiliate link for this one. Now what that means is if you go check out some of those things that you link to through my website, and you decide to invest in some of them, I might get some remuneration for that. The reason I finally got an affiliate link for wealthy affiliate is because for about seven or eight years I had recommended the website heavily anyway. And I thought, “Well, if I’m doing that anyway, I might as well get an affiliate link.” If you go to mywebsite and click on something thatt says “Wealthy Affiliate,” more than likely that will be an affiliate link. Okay, so much for the disclosure.

The Value of Affiliate Marketing

Now, why is Wealthy Affiliate, a coolwebsite that you can use right now to get better results with internet marketing. If you are an aspiring entrepreneur, you will want to learn as much as you can. Wealthy Affiliate will teach you the ins and outs of affiliate marketing.

I just mentioned. I had an affiliate link to the website called Wealthy Affiliate. So that is not my own product, but I have a link to it. There are many products that don’t have to be your own products that are great products that could help people. You could get a commission on for referring people to those products. This is a quick way to start earning money online.

Now I forgot to mention that in my affiliate link situation, it does not cost you any more to sign up through any affiliate’s link than it would if you just went directly to the original place and signed up for the product or membership there. Whenever you decide to invest in a resource, you might as well help your friends out. Then if your friends are interested in resources you recommend, they will be glad to go through your affiliate link.

The Value of Creating Your Own Products

Though recommending affiliate products is great, more than likely you will desire to have your own products. Wealthy Affiliate will help you learn how to produce and market your own products. I think this would be an even greater value for those of
us who are creative, but either way—using other people’s products  or using your own—Wealthy Affiliate will help you with that process. It’s very good in those departments.

In previous blog posts, I mentioned how this type of online business could be ideal for vocational ministers. Well, affiliate marketing is a way to start getting income quickly
without having to produce your own products.

But most of us are pretty creative too (at least in sermon preparation). Because of that many of us would like to produce our own products.

The Value of Building Your Own Websites and Blogs

Another reason WA (Wealthy Affiliate) is a good website is it will teach you how to build your own quality websites. If you desire to set up a blog. It will teach you
how to do that too.

So, it will teach you about affiliate marketing. It will teach you about producing your own products. It will help you learn how to set up your own quality website and blog.
However, WA’s value goes far beyond that.

The Value of Providing Keyword Research

Another reason WA is valuable is because it will teach you the value of keyword research. There is a lot that goes into understanding the importance of keywords that we don’t think much about. I would encourage you to learn about the
value of keyword research. Good keywords can improve traffic to your website. Wealthy Affiliate provides you with a tool that will show you how many people clicked on a certain keyword in the previous month, or months. One that is well-searched and includes other important factors might be a key word you would want to use in some
of your blog posts or in some of your articles. Good keywords can increase traffic to your website.

The Value of Included Website Hosting

Another reason WA is valuable is that it includes website hosting. As I said I have been associated with them for about 12 years. Now, I liked the training, and I still like
the training. I have not come near exhausting their vast amounts of training at all. I’m still learning. I really like that aspect of their program, but the thing that has kept me with them the most has been their provision of website hosting.

If you set up a website, you have to have “hosting.” You have to have more or less a place to park your website online. That means you have to pay for hosting.

Well, since I am a wealthy affiliate member anyway, I am able to use their service. They include free hosting for multiple websites. So, that’s another reason why it is a
cool resource for us internet marketers. The fact is that this website has hosting set up for you, so you can run your entire business using their fast and reliable hosting services.

The Value of Extensive Training

I already mentioned training, but that’s another reason why WA is so valuable. They come out with at least one new live training every week. When you join them, you have
access to hundreds and hundreds of lessons from previous trainings
through the years.

Also, as a membership community, many experienced entrepreneurs also put new training on the website too. It is one of the best places for training in Internet marketing.

My Recommendation

I highly recommend Wealthy Affiliate, and I would recommend it whether I had an affiliate link with them or not.

Three Getting Started Questions Every New Coach Should Ask

What are three getting started questions every new coach should ask?

Getting started in a new coaching business has many varied parts of the process. It can seem quite overwhelming in the beginning. Here are some of the main questions a new coach should ask.

I. What Kind of Coaching Are You Best Suited For?

There are many varieties of coaching. One type would help people with discovering their identities and clarifying their purpose.

Another type would help people in the area of personal growth, and this would spill over into business growth too.

A third type would be entrepreneurial coaching. This would be for people who would want to start businesses of their own.

Online Coaching

Another way of classifying types of coaching would have to do with the delivery of the coaching experience.

First of all, you could have personal coaching. This involves meeting with people one on one. You could meet with them online, through the telephone or through the computer using through FaceTime, Zoom, Skype, or some similar distance collaboration platform

Second, you could have group coaching. This is often done online live with a group watching in and asking questions.

Finally, you could have a type of coaching that is more passive. That could be in the form of delivering the information in the form of a course. Again, courses could be in person or online. Some online courses are set to where the student can go at his or her own pace and click on new lessons after completing the previous lessons. This is quite automated in that the coach does not have to do anything after completing the course materials.

So, first of all it would be a good idea to find out what kind of coaching you would like to do.

II. What Kinds of Additional Training would give you confidence?

You need to understand that credentials are not required for many types of coaching. In many cases your personal experience will be much more valuable than certain types of certifications. However, for your own benefit, you might want training to increase your confidence. Even though credentials are not required, they also sometimes can give you the perception of increased credibility.

I want to point out three certifications you can gain from Author Academy Elite. I mentioned identity coaching earlier. They have a certification program dubbed “Your Secret Name” coaching. I also mentioned personal or business growth coaching. AAE has another certification called, “The Deeper Path.” Then I mentioned entrepreneurial coaching. AAE also has a certification program called, “Day Job to Dream Job.” It specializes in guiding people through occupational change, and especially guiding those who desire to start their own businesses.

III. What Online Tools Could Help You with the Coaching Process?

You will need an online tool that will help you with email communication.

You would also need collaboration tools–a place where you and your client could keep track of assignments and further to communicate with each other.

Then you will need a website builder.

You would need a tool that would help you keep track of your progress.

Then it would be good to have an online tool that would help you with course building.

There is a program that includes all of the above options in one package. It is called “The Coaches Console,” and I highly recommend you consider it if you are indeed going to get involved in coaching.

Those are the three getting started questions every coach should ask: What kind of coaching are you best suited for? What kinds of additional training would give you confidence? And, What online tools could help you with the coaching process.

Three Insider Tips for Writing Quickly and Easily that Every Brand New Author Needs to Know

Happy Writer

Happy WriterWhat are three insider tips for writing quickly and easily that every brand new author needs to know?

The accompanying video is the first edition of “Walking with Randy.” A few months ago I started walking. I started out getting 2000 steps a day, and then I worked my way up to 10,000. I think 10,000 is a good number, so I’m probably not going to try to progress much beyond that.

Walking with Randy

In this article, I’m going to talk about insider tips for writing quickly and easily

for brand new authors.

Find Time to Write

The first tip is to find time to set aside for writing. We need to realize that we all have the same amount of time. We have more than 10,000 minutes every week. Before we talk about regularly scheduled time, though, we need to find snatches of time hidden within our days. For instance, we find that we spend a lot of time waiting. If we plan ahead a little, we can redeem that time. Your waiting time could be used for writing. If you had a little notebook or computer tablet with you, you could spend that time writing.

In preparation for setting aside exclusive times to write, we need to examine what we do regularly. Do you find that you spend a lot of time on lesser pursuits? Maybe those activities are not bad in themselves, but do you have times that could be spend on more productive tasks?

An example of using waiting time could be seen in going to the doctor’s office. Nowadays, you might be asked to wait in your car before going in to actually see the doctor. Under more normal circumstances, you might be asked to sit in the waiting room. While you are doing that, you could read one of their magazines. You may have planned ahead and brought your own reading material. However, if you brought your writing materials, whether they be paper or digital, you could use that waiting time to move your project along.

The next thing is to be intentional in setting aside time exclusively for writing. You might be able to write for 15 minutes on your lunch hour.

You might decide to get up earlier, or, if you are quite productive at night, you might decide to set aside some extra time by going to bed later.

You also, could combine all three of the above times by getting up a half-hour earlier, writing 15 minutes at lunch, and going to bed a half-hour later.

If you can find 75 minutes in your day, you can complete a chapter. That would mean you could complete the rough draft of an average-sized 200-page book that included 20 chapters in just 20 working days!

By then, you would have your “book.” Granted it will be a rough draft, but the book is basically done. Then you will polish the book and make it great.

Create Short Artificial Deadlines

Alarm Deadline

The second tip is to create artificial deadlines. Suppose you give yourself five minutes to write on a certain topic, five or six minutes, or maybe 10 minutes. A lot of writers have found this to be very beneficial in helping them to get certain projects done.

Now, by making the deadlines, small like that, the whole process helps prevent the feeling of overwhelm.

Shorter deadlines also helps with procrastination, because it doesn’t seem so insurmountable to write for just a little project, instead of a big long one. For instance, if you had your chapter broken down into anywhere from 12 to 15 little five minute projects. You could get a chapter done easily by writing, and meeting those short artificial deadlines.

You see? We respond to deadlines. If you spent some time in college, you might have told an all-nighter or two in order to get a paper done. You had two or three months to get it done, but the deadline was looming it had to be turned in the next day. Or, how many of us have gone to the post office with our tax forms on April 15? I know I have done that a few times. So, we respond to deadlines. To get the ball rolling, create your own artificial deadlines. I would recommend that you create five, six, or 10 minute deadlines.

These short deadlines will help you to get over perfectionism. When you have a deadline of five or ten minutes, you don’t have time to agonize over every word. Of course your writing should be the best you can make it, but that will be accomplished in the editing process (whether you do some editing each day or at the end of the first draft). Right now, your goal is to get the ideas on paper.

Write in Answer to Questions

The third tip is to write in answer to questions. You see, our minds are programmed to answer questions. We know six words that help us with questions. When we hear a group of words starting with one of these particular words. We know that group of works is a question. That can help us with writing because our minds are programmed to answer those questions. I’m sure you have guessed by now, but those words are, “who, what, when, where, why, and how.” I would also add to this list a couple of two word questions, such as, “What then?” and “So what?”

Well, those are some tips for being able to write quickly and easily. First of all you have to find a time to write. Second, you need to create some artificial deadlines and doing that will help you to get your work done. I didn’t mention it, or maybe I did but this helps was perfectionism. Third you should write in answer to questions.

These are the insider tips for writing quickly and easily that every brand new author needs to know.

Video for Blog Posts – The Covid Video Blessing

Watching Video on Computer
Watching Video on Computer

Forced into doing things we are not used to describes the year 2020 for most of us. Video for blog posts is something that some of us discovered as a transferable skill that resulted from us meeting a need during the pandemic.

Along with being a speaker, writer, and book-writing coach, I serve as a bi-vocational minister. Several of my friends in this same category got thrust into some new experiences.

Many of us, as a precautionary measure, quit worshiping at our local churches for a while. That is when many of us started doing online services. I already had a YouTube channel and some experience producing my own videos. Others, though, learned how to do this for the first time.

The Background of the Transferable Skill of Using Video for Blog Posts

I had some experience with Facebook Live, but, as often happens, I had to learn the process all over again in order to record some of our messages. For a while, that was simply done in my home office, but when we decided to return to our church, we continued broadcasting live through Facebook.

Apart from that, I have a wonderful assistant who helps me carry out many tasks that can be time consuming. So, after I learned how to transfer the FB Live videos to YouTube, I trained her in that process too.

We edit the live recording to shorten it somewhat, and to remove any copyright claims for the wider YouTube audiences.

I know I can include the YouTube videos here on this blog, but I wondered if a link could go directly to the Facebook Live video from over a week ago too.

Trying the Temporary Links for Using Video for Blog Posts

So, here goes the experiment.

First, we will include the YouTube video. Some like for me to have these replays up anyway.

Here is the video from a week or two ago:

Here is a listing of that same link:



Now, here is the attempt to go to the original Facebook Live version:

And, again, here is that link:

https://www.facebook.com/randy.carney1/videos/10224508277198421

I guess one way to check this is to publish it temporarily, and then come back and finish editing the bog post.

Since I am writing in real time, let me just say, “I will be back in a minute.” 🙂

I left and published temporarily and both of the links worked. So, you can use Facebook Live videos as well as YouTube links. (I will have to keep checking back to see how long the Facebook video links will work.)

Using Facebook Live to Produce Video for Blog Posts

How To Use Facebook Live To Get More Traffic To Your Website could be an alternate heading for this section.

Facebook Live is a quick and easy way to produce a video for a blog post that assists Internet marketers to get more traffic to their websites.

The bottom line here is that this is a quick way to produce a video for your blog post. Doing this gives you an almost unfair advantage. You will get more traffic to your website over other Internet marketers by inserting videos into your blog posts.

All Internet marketers should check out this tool because using it is a very quick way to produce videos. Once the video processes where it comes up when you open up Facebook, all you have to do is copy the url and use it as a link to a picture in your blog pos

Here’s why Facebook Live is so important…

You can start on an article, cut away to do a video, and then come right back.

How can you get started with video very quickly?

  • Go to your Facebook page
  • Click on the “Live Video” link
  • Your camera will come on and you will see yourself in the lower right corner
  • About half-way down on the left side of the page, you will see the word, “post”
  • You can go down two items below that and click on the down arrow to choose to share to your timeline, to a page you manage, or to a group
  • I would recommend putting in a title, but it is optional
  • Then put in a short description
  • When you are ready, click on “Go Live.”
  • After your presentation, click on “finish,” and then choose where you want to share the video on Facebook.
  • Wait a while for the video to show up on Facebook where you shared it
  • Start the video, and copy the url from the top of the page
  • Then you can place that link in your blog post

And the great news is, this incredible tool costs nothing at present.

You can check out this quick way to produce a video for a blog post by going to your own Facebook page.

Why Every Author Needs to Write Amazing, Irresistible Book Proposals

Reading on Pile of Books

If you really want to know how to get clarity and be ahead of the game for writing your book, then this writing great book proposals secret holds the key you need to succeed. It tells why every author needs to write amazing, irresistible book proposals. I will mention a resource later that will help if you want to avoid having to spend hours struggling to write book proposals.

The Point Of This Secret Is: The Book Proposal Is One Of The Most Important Parts Of Any Book-Writing Project

 

The important thing for authors to understand with this secret is that you need to have an amazing book proposal to stop the right people in their tracks and make them pay attention. Agents or publishers are the people who need to see your proposal if you go the traditional publishing route.

As a authors, here’s what I mean: if you don’t have a great book proposal, agents will walk (or click) right on by your offer without ever taking a look.

Everyone needs to know this because without a great book proposal, you could

 Write an Amazing, Irresistible Book Proposal

have the greatest book in the world, or the greatest book idea ever, and hardly anybody will see it because no agent or publisher stopped to take a look.

Next you need to:

1. Pay attention to the fact that you need a great book proposal to get a great agent.

Agents are the gateway to traditional publishers. Many of them have relationships with each other. The recommendation of a good agent goes a long way toward getting a publisher to consider your book.

In a few cases, a publisher will allow book proposals to be submitted drectly from the author. In those cases, it is imperative that you have an attention-getting proposal. Many publishers are overwhelmed by proposals. Publishing houses have been notorious for having slush piles. You don’t want your proposal to be in such a pile. Then, it may be an assistant that goes through the pile. Agents have assistants too.

You want to have such an amazing, attention-getting proposal that it will be interesting at first glance

2. Realize that even if you self-publish, a great book proposal will prepare you for marketing your book.

In today’s world, authors that are picked up by traditional publishers still have to do a ton of marketing of their own books. If you self publish, the marketing will be all on you, unless you hire a publicist. The process of creating a book proposal will help you to be ahead of many other self publishers.

Another type of publisher is called a hybrid publisher. These publishers have elements of both self-publishing and traditional publishing. Many traditional publishers will require you to create a book proposal just for the reasons I mention here.

3. Most of all, realize that creating a book proposal will clarify your entire writing process.

Part of your proposal will require a synopsis for each chapter. That is a great start for your book. I recommend a special type of writing plan. The synopsis part of your book proposal will be a great foundation for this expanded writing plan.

Did this get you excited? Well, if you’re an author who wants to get clarity and be ahead of the game for writing your book, check out this highly effective course on writing great books. In it, I cover “How To Get Your Book Proposal Written (In Just a Day or Two) WITHOUT Hiring An Expensive Publicist!”

Your # 1 Time-Wasting Mistake — Fast Writing Tips for Authors

Write an Amazing, Irresistible Book Proposal

Fast writing tips for authors are very important. However, not following some of them can have serious consequences.

Your # 1 Time-Wasting Mistake When It Comes to Fast Book Writing

Frustrated Writer

If you want to get your book written, then pay careful attention to this time waster. This time waster doesn’t seem like one because you avoid one to three days of hard work by avoiding an all-important task. Avoiding  fast writing tips like this one does have consequences.

The Moral Here Is: To Plan Your Entire Book Before You Start Writing 

The important thing to understand with this time waster is you need to finish the writing plan for your entire book. You will be tempted to try to start by just writing a chapter of two. However, you will soon bog down if that is how you go about it.

So, here’s what I mean: if you constantly stay in “urgent” mode you’ll be engaged in activity all the time and feel like you’re busy, but you will actually just be spinning your wheels.

If you want more details about these fast-writing tips, watch this video.

Don’t neglect this idea because most people will initially be resistant to the idea of planning their whole book. They will not want to do two days of hard work to make things easier for the next four weeks.

For best results here you should

1. List temporary titles for all of your chapters
2. Write down 12-15 questions for each chapter under the title
3. Come up with a list of “trigger” words that will remind you of the answer to each question (3 or more). Place them underneath each question.

Once you have your book planned out in this way, it will cry out to you to be written. Doing the hard work first will save you a ton of time. Maybe even a year or more. This plan will allow you to start anywhere in your book if you feel more like writing on the topic in a later chapter. The questions will also help you avoid writer’s block. Just answer them. You don’t even have to feel inspired.

Seriously, your biggest time waster will be to avoid doing this all-important task.

So, now, go write the plan for your book!

God’s Amazing Turnarounds

Turnarounds

After all the debate is over, if you want to get results with God’s Amazing Turnarounds then these 3 ways God worked in the past will help you get results a whole lot faster today. In fact, these are the tools the source of the the inner voice of despair within hopes you don’t find out about because then their demonic secrets will be out of the bag. If you want simple, effective, and immediate turnarounds tools to make your life as a person in despair easier, then take a hard look at these examples from the life of King David before you go any further.

Turnarounds
A Turnaround

Example #1: Weeping may happen, but joy can come.

Look at Psalm 30, verses 1-5

This past way God worked to turn things around is important because we often get into states of despair because we don’t understand the confusing moments of life.

David had been anointed King when he was young, but that never came true publicly in his early life. David even got to the point where he pretended to be insane in order to spare his own life when he appeared before one of the kings that opposed his people.

God’s Amazing Turnarounds

 See how God later turned around his life. Use this memory to encourage you when you get into the despairing moments of life.

Example #2: God can turn our mourning into dancing

The way David described this experience is found in verses 6-11.

After being an outlaw, David was finally chosen as the king of Judah, and later, as king of both Judah and Israel.

This past way of seeing God works is critical to our success because life is not always sweetness and roses. Times of despair and mourning do come.

However, if we remain faithful to God, our mourning can turn into dancing.

This video gives the details of the examples from David’s life.

Example #3: We will be forever thankful when God does this

David expressed his thankfulness for God turned things around in his life. This is described in verses 11-13

This past way that God worked in David’s life will help us because we can see how God has turned some things around in the past.

Regardless of how bad life gets, we can be thankful to God because we know the joys of Heaven will far outweigh any sufferings we may experience in this present moment; however, most of us don’t have to wait till we get to Heaven. God often turns our lives around in amazing, unexpected ways.

As with any past examples, things change and adapt over time. But, from my direct, day-to-day experience, I have seen many smart people in despair – regardless of their current situation – remember God’s promises and trust Him to turn things around.

I recently created a new online course course, called 6-Figure Writing. Many of you are interested in writing AND in the marketing of your books once they are written. 6-Figure Writing helps you write your books, and Wealthy Affiliate helps with the marketing of your books.

The Back Story for 6-Figure Writing

I just posted a new blog post at Wealthy Affiliate that tells how I got to where I am today.

Part of the background has to do with struggling to make daily word counts as a staff writer for a curriculum publisher. Fortunately I got over that and went on to write ten books. Now, I want to share the lessons learned with others.

The Current Look of Wealthy Affiliate

About ten years ago, I came across Wealthy Affiliate. I joined and have been a member ever since. It helped me learn how to make websites. It provides hosting for websites. In fact, this website was created with what I learned at Wealthy Affiliate and some free instruction from James Stafford.

To check out the rest of my writing blogs, click here.

The Real Trick To Overcoming Jealousy

Overcome Jealousy and Rejoice in Friends’ Successes

Have you ever been jealous of a friend’s success? Have you had other friends come to you and tell you that someone else is gaining something, but they are doing so at your expense? Let’s look at how to overcome jealousy in a relationship.

You may be wondering a little about how John came to be in the situation he was in that day.

The Setup

Let me tell you a quick story about how John’s friends saw that he was losing popularity. Those who formerly went to him were going somewhere else then.

At the time John was trying to Improve people’s lives and point them to the Savior of the world..

After John realized what they said was true, he may have struggled himself because of seeing the disappointment of his co-workers.

And, for a fleeting moment, he may have been more and more tempted to be jealous himself. He realized they all needed to learn how to overcome jealousy in a relationship.

The Seeming Turn for the Worse

Then the bottom fell out from under John. His co-workers lamented that it was not just a few, but everyone was going somewhere else .

For a moment that seemed to mean he wouldn’t be able to continue enjoying his success as a preacher.

As you can imagine, he could have gotten in bad shape and desperate, but he wasn’t ready to give up on his dream of working with Jesus, not against Him.

This is a good place to read the actual Scriptural text of this true story found in John 3:22-30.

The Discovery–How to Overcome Jealousy in a Relationship

Then John remembered that the friend of the bridegroom rejoices over his friend’s marriage. There is no jealousy in a situation like that.

At that point, everything changed!

John figured out three truths:

  • First of all, his friends were genuinely concerned.
  • Second, he really understood that true friends rejoice in each other’s successes.
  • Third, he could let his friends know that only God has a right to be jealous

After all, in the Ten Commandments, God let’s us know that he is a jealous God, and that we should have no other gods before Him.

The Transformation

Because John remembered that the friend of the bridegroom rejoices over his friend’s marriage, he was able to:

  • Rejoice in the success Jesus and his immediate followers were seeing.
  • Continue to point others to Jesus, only now in a greater way.
  • Rejoice in the fact God is the only true God.

Then he lived his new dream of working with Jesus, not against Him, and he never had to worry about jealousy, either on his part or his co-workers’ part, ever again. Each of them had learned how to overcome jealousy in a relationship.

And that’s why he and all of us following are so passionate about sharing with you about “Rejoicing in Friends’ Successes” so you can experience working with Jesus and your friends, not against them! The main thing however, is to glorify Jesus most of all.

You see? We all have 24 hours each day. That means that we have 1,4440 minutes each day too.

Likewise, we have 168 hours each week, so that means we have 10,080 minutes in a week! Just think of it: Over 10,000 minutes to do what you want to with each week. Surely we could use many of those minutes to give priority to writing.

Let’s simplify it even more. Let’s say you break your book down into 5-minute writing segments. That means you could use a lot of time you may not have thought you had.

For instance: You might have to go to the dentist. After you check in, you usually sit in the waiting room before you are called. At this writing, you might have to return to your car to wait. If you are in a waiting room, you could read their magazines while you wait, or you may go prepared for the waiting with your own book. OR …., you could take your writing materials with you–pen and paper, or maybe even your laptop.

Then you could start on one of your 5-minute writing projects. You likely will not use a timer there, so you will have to keep an eye on your watch.

At the end of five minutes, they have not called you back, so you start on your next 5-minute writing segment. Then you have time for a third one. There you have one-fifth of a chapter written, all while using waiting time wisely. Do you see how personal time management strategies can help you finish your book?

While you can get a lot of your book written using waiting time, you likely will not write it all during waiting time. That leads us to our next tip

Tip #2 – You Have Ways To Carve Out Some Time

Many writers write early in the morning before the rest of the family wakes up. Others are night owls, and they write an hour or so after everyone else goes to bed. Still others spend some time during lunch.

Another alternative would be to combine all three of those ideas: Wake up a half-hour before everyone else wakes up. Then use another half-hour after everyone else goes to bed. Additionally, write for 15 minutes during your lunch hour.

If you write for 75-90 minutes every day, you can easily knock our the rough draft of your book in less than 28 days if plan your book using a special 5-minute writing segment plan.

Since writing is a priority for you, surely you can carve out some daily time for writing.

Tip #3 – You Have Ways to Eliminate Distractions

In order to write quickly, you will have to be focused.

It is best to have a place to write. If you can designate a separate room, that is best. You can have your own office. Others, though, may have to use a dual-purpose room. Still, it is best to get away from other distractions. If at all possible use a room exclusively when you are writing.

Here is another good tip to eliminate distractions. Put a sign on the door. It can say, “I’m Working” or something like that. If you are writing fiction, you can even threaten to write violators into the story! The sign just serves as a gentle reminder to family members that you should not be disturbed unless it is absolutely necessary for them to talk to you.

So, let’s summarize what we’ve covered in “Personal Time Management Strategies to Write a Book Quickly:”

  • You have a lot of time
