I created my first successful product in just 10 days. I realized the creation process is as valuable as the product itself and I want to share it. Welcome to the Making-of The Mini-Guide for Writing a Super Complete Post in 20 Minutes.
This post is part of the new series on my blog, the Making-of The Mini-Guide! (All the chapters are here).
The right platform: Where should I write my book?
My thoughts about the right tools is pretty clear. But the actual writing needs its own chapter, and not because I’m suggesting some kind of tool but because I work in modules. It’s just the way I’m wired.
I don’t have a right platform. I have three and even though all of them are for writing, each one has a specific function.
I write the ideas, modules, projects, index, the plan, everything that’s strikeoutable goes here.
Questions, notes, the parts of the book, the structure and even those little loose ideas that I’m still deciding if incorporate or not to the book.
I could say that everything that’s about the conception of the book goes in a sketchbook.
All that creative brainstorm where I’m translating the book from my brain to an actual written plan to follow needs to be in a sketchbook.
Also the first two paragraphs or more if I feel like it.
My second platform is Google Docs. I know! The most simple editor available is where I write my book. There’s a reason to it: It does the job. Well, two reasons: It doesn’t have distractions.
I can just open a doc, write the two paragraphs I wrote in my sketchbook and just keep writing until my fingers hurt.
I like writing all the book content in Google Docs. I apply just basic formats when needed, like bold or italic or titles to distinguish sections.
My third platform is Microsoft Word. Having the content written, I just need to make it prettier. I like to struggle with design and templates at the end because it’s a time I take to also editing the content at the same time.
