Plan your non fiction book #9 – do nothing

Plan your non fiction book in a weekend has been designed to help you to be able to undertake all of the vital planning tasks that make writing a book – simple and stress free

Each day to help you create your book, I am going to answer these essential planning questions:-

  • What kind of planner am I and why is this important to know?
  • What tools and resources do I need?
  • What is the process and cost of writing and publishing a book?
  • How long will it take me?
  • How do I get ideas for my book?
  • How do I choose the ONE big idea for my book?
  • What is an outline and how do I create one?
  • How can I structure my chapters?
  • How do I create and use a book proposal?

Yesterday I asked what is your your vision for your book?

Do nothing

Today I just want to ask you to do nothing.

[Tweet “Taking time out to reflect is really important when you are writing a book”]

Write because you can take time off to do nothing.  And that's ok.That’s it, nothing, nada, zilch.

It is hard isn’t it to do nothing? But unless you give yourself space and me time, you mind will get congested. A stuck and constipated mind is the enemy of the writer. So give yourself permission to not write or plan or do anything to do with your book.

Tomorrow when you wake get out your journal and ask ‘what is the vision for my book now?’

Leave a comment because I want to know.

Remember to scribble thoughts and ideas as they come to you. Keep them safe we will be looking more at vision over the next few days.

  1. I’ve never thought about what goes into writing a book but I really like this days advice. LOL It is so very important to just take a break and clear your mind, and I think so many people burn out or crash because they don’t take time for themselves. Rest is always a good thing. 😉

  2. I shall pass this series along to the friend who inspired my linked post, below. It’s neither as simple as it seems, nor as complicated, really. But it can be daunting for beginners.
