How I Wrote My First How-To Manual While Working for Somebody Else

Written by Robert Brents

When I decided to write my first how-to manual, I was employed full-time; I had a wife, and a pre-teen daughter who was in every sport and activity imaginable, and I was delivering seminars and training courses at night and on Saturdays. I had no idea when or how I was ever going to get a how-to manual written!

Then one of my mentors suggested that I carry a cassette recorder in my car and dictaterepparttar entire first draft while commuting to my (last) job. And thatís exactly what I did.

When I finished dictatingrepparttar 117750 first draft, I gaverepparttar 117751 tapes to a transcription service and they created an Microsoft Word document fromrepparttar 117752 tapes, which I then edited, published, and marketed and promoted like crazy. Andrepparttar 117753 rest, as they say, is history. As wasrepparttar 117754 job I had been commuting to while I was creating my first how-to manual.
