Many serious people in this world endeavor to write a book. They have an idea, either fiction or nonfiction, that appeals to them. They:
- Think about the topic.
- Dive into what’s essential for a fiction or nonfiction book.
- Plan subject matter and chapters.
- Talk about their writing project to friends and family.
- Prepare necessary research.
- Create an outline.
- Trust in its success.
Every one of these practices is excellent, but the first question I ask every new writer is, “What is your passion?” How can a writer expect readers to be excited about a book unless the writer is emotionally involved?
