7 Author Tips For Writing an E-book Fast

Posted on June 29, 2018 in Uncategorized

When you are writing an e-book how long does it take you? Would you like to be able to write faster without losing quality in your writing? I’m going to give you seven ideas you can use to write high quality articles and save time doing it.

1. (Be comfortable — really comfortable). If you are most comfortable in your office with a quiet symphony playing in the background or are most comfortable sitting in the swimming pool on a bright sunny day then that is what you should do. Writers do their best when they are in an environment that makes them feel good. This happens both in the quantity of work and the quality of work that gets done.

2. (Get rid of your distractions). All of your distractions need to be eliminated. This may seem impossible but it needn’t be. For instance, if you work at home and have kids, try sending them to daycare even if for only one day a week. Alternately, you could try working during their nap times or at night when they are in bed. It’s important to be able to continue a train of thought and eliminating distractions is one of the best ways do this. It is said that for some people this takes care of writers block problems.

3. (Speed up your typing). If you can’t type 45 wpm, consider taking a typing class or get a speech recognition program such as Dragon NaturallySpeaking. Since most people think much faster than they type, their fingers slow them down. By speeding up your typing, you will be able to continue your thought process and make your writing much more enjoyable.

4. (Use a mind map). By using a mind map such as PersonalBrain, you can speed the process of writing an e-book. A mind map lets you visually see and organize your thoughts ahead of time and as you go along. It also lets you see where your connectors should be — at a glance.

It’s also a great tool for future projects where you might incorporate some of the same ideas. I found this to be one of the most important tools I have.

5. (Spellcheck it later). Spellcheckers are important for any e-book. You want to lend credibility and professionalism to your e-book. The problem with spellchecking is it can slow you down and can break your train of thought. Performing tasks like this while you’re writing adds a lot of speed bumps to your writing process. The best thing to do is do you’re spellchecking after your work is done.

6. (Proof read later). Many writers want to proofread after they are done with each page or chapter. Don’t make a habit of this. If it becomes a habit, you can totally interrupt and stop your writing. You might get on a roll and feel like writing more which is good. But, if you stop and proofread at the end of a paragraph or a chapter, you have just missed everything up. After you are no longer in the mood to write, then proofread. You might even want to wait until the e-book is done before you proof it.

7. (Set a time limit). Yesterday I read a Warrior Forum thread from a guy who couldn’t get things done. Nathan Faulkner had a spot on answer:

“Having “all the time in the world” is problematic, because it’s easy to push things off for “later” or to get caught up doing things on forums or elsewhere and not actually get anything done.

Try this… set aside just ONE HOUR wherein you’ll focus on your work. I’ve been a fan of using this little online “timer” that I can program to sound an alarm at the end of a predefined amount of time:

(Note: The above url may not be active by the time you read this. In that case do a search for web timers.)

Maybe try starting with 30 minute increments and say to yourself that you’ll create an entire review page or whatever it is that you’re doing that works. Force yourself to rush and to get it done before the alarm goes off, etc. I hope this helps!”

When you can speed up your writing, you will enjoy it more and you will write more e-books and better e-books. Use the above tips and become better at what you do.

Holy Book And Prayers

Posted on June 22, 2018 in Uncategorized

Everyone encounters difficulties in life. No one is spared, but these problems are tests which should be overcome. Prayers are the means man usually uses to give himself and others hope in life.

Prayers must emerge from the heart and should be righteous to be effective. Man should not pray for something that is harmful to others. Such prayers will not be answered. It is the sincerity and simplicity of the heart that God wants, not fanfare, festoons, or a heap of flowers or other offerings.

If a man faces a difficulty, he should not lose heart, but concentrate on God. He should shut out his thoughts, and pray, requesting God to show him a way out. If the prayer rises from the bottom of his heart and his words are sincere, truthful and just, then God will answer his prayers.

A holy book is a great source of comfort during troubled times. When you are very disturbed, try to close your eyes, think of God, request for a solution to you problems and open a holy book which you read often and select a random passage or line. If your prayer was sincere and heartfelt, then the particular line or passage will contain answers or words of comfort, which will give extreme solace to your mind.

God’s ways are great. His grace is above par. But man should be ready to receive the showers of his love which is more than the love of a thousand mothers. Man’s heart should not be like the pot with lots of holes which cannot hold water. The holes like jealousy, greed, lust, vice, anger, and ego should be closed to receive God’s grace completely and retain it to enjoy a life of contentment.

Reading holy books every day for a few minutes will remind man constantly of his own divine connection with God and will urge him to gradually understand that the material world is not eternal. Holy books not only teach us about God’s ways and rules, but they are a great comfort during troubled times.

Christian Book Distributors Can Change Your Life

Posted on June 15, 2018 in Uncategorized

There are many skeptics of Christianity in the world today. A lot of faithful Christians feel unable to answer these skeptics and defend their beliefs and have a debate with confidence.

If you fall under this category then perhaps you can change this by picking up a few great Christian books. You can get books about Christianity all over the place. My favorite place to go get Christian reading material are Christian book stores. They always have the largest selection of material on all the topics of the Christian religion from the bible to how to become a preacher. In this huge pile of knowledge you are bound to find a great book that can assist you finding a greater connection with the bible and your life. The majority of us have only read pages and maybe a few books in the bible. But sometimes it is good to look elsewhere for inspiration. Perhaps you will find the inspiration you need in a great Christian book.

There are plenty of books that are more broad and are less about religious fanaticism and scripture. They focus more on how one can use religion to apply it to everyday situations in ones life. In our normal lives as Christians we will most certainly come upon situations that call upon us to do things like defend our faith, build faith, find comfort and support, etc. All of these things can be achieved in a great Christian book.

Christians will sooner or later come upon a time when clarification and information is needed to strengthen our faith. This is where a great book other than the bible can come into play. Go to your local Christian book stores and have a look around. You’ll find that Book stores are just like regular books stores. They have all kinds of books in paperback or hardcover, children’s books, audio books, coloring books, picture books you name it, it’s there.

It’s nice to not have to rely on the church all the time. You’ll find that once you find Christian book distributors, you will one more refuge in your quest to be a better Christian and human being. Having the tools at your disposal like friends, family, the church, priests, nuns, the bible, and God all on your side will give you a sense of safety give you comfort. Adding Books to that list can only make you feel safer and more comfortable.
