Instead, he offers three approaches that will changerepparttar way you write and make it much easier and much more fun:

(1) Molecular writing - this is a way of 'chunking down' torepparttar 129571 level of bite-sized pieces of information: "harvesting individual ideas, or nuggets of information, which you carefully organize and prioritize before beginning writing".

(2) Measurable progress writing - "committing to write a little each day, building time into your daily schedule (as opposed to escaping to a cabin inrepparttar 129572 woods)".

(3) Non-sequential writing - "jumping into your project wherever you're comfortable, starting withrepparttar 129573 easiest ideas, and building your confidence point by point, idea by idea, wherever they appear in your book".

Another part of this book that is essential reading if you're thinking of writing a book is Chapter Four - '10 Characteristics of Successful Titles'. Did you know that at least half of your book's success will be determined byrepparttar 129574 title you choose?

Robert Parker shows you 10 key concepts that makerepparttar 129575 difference between a title that sells well and one that flops. (Here's a hint:repparttar 129576 following titles all use these 10 key concepts: Chicken Soup For The Soul; Rich Dad, Poor Dad; The Millionaire Next Door; The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People; Think and Grow Rich; How to Win Friends and Influence People).

The book also contains 4 work sheets (pages 99 to 120) that guide you throughrepparttar 129577 writing of your book.

'Profit From The Author Inside You' set of explosions in my head on virtually every page. In fact, it fired me up so much that I'm now using Robert Parker's techniques to write a book that I've been trying to write for over 5 years. What more can I say?

4. Contactrepparttar proper person. I userepparttar 129569 online version of Writerís Market to stay abreast of contact changes. I use this as a research and lead tool only however. Once Iíve found publications that fit my acceptable payment range and interest, Iíll then visitrepparttar 129570 publicationís site and search for freelance information there. Oftenrepparttar 129571 publicationís website will have a different editor listed, or they may even direct you to send your queries to an assistant instead.

This makes it easy forrepparttar 129579 editor to review your previous work at their own convenience.

My preferred market is business, technical and trade publications, so your own results with these methods may vary slightly.
