How to Write a Book, or How Not To, or Encouragement to Write a Book

Supposedly 80% of people say they want to write a book. How many do you think will? I don’t blame the ones that won’t. If only because it’s so much easier to binge-watch Netflix. Writing a book means fitting a massive creative task into your schedule, learning how to consistently get your ideas out, hopefully polishing…
