I bet if you’re a budding writer the idea eats at you every day. But do you have an idea, that can make you money and bring your heart and voice out into the world?

However many people are unclear on their book idea. So here are three tips to help you break down a million potential ideas into one powerful one.

1 - Is the book you have planned a the right fit for your future, the future of your business or you personally? A book is a calling card and it helps if it leads on to sometime else you are selling or something you want to be seen as an expert in. Books don’t make as much money as the products you can market off the back of them.

2 - What problem in the world is your book answering. If it’s a fiction book it could simply be the need for entertainment and distraction. But powerful books answer a problem. People look to books for advice and yet some of the most powerful insights I have had about my own life was whilst reading fiction. What is your message to the world?

3 - On a night out with friends, what can you talk about endlessly? You don’t have to be an expert in your subject, but you have to have enough passion to research and become the joiner of dots from one way of thinking to another thus developing your own unique prospective. That makes you an expert.

I have started writing my book........ I actually started, then stopped again over 5 years ago! Now I am completely stuck and feel as though I have lost the plot with the storyline........ Any advice??

Yep, you need to map it out before you start writing. But you can still do that now even at a mid point So for a fiction book you need to create the peak points in the story out on a large sheet of paper. So you can see the story unfold visually as a pattern.
You can do the same thing for all the characters, think about their story before the story starts, what brought them to where they are. When you do this you start to hear their voices, and in a way they help show you the direction, that might sound a bit nuts but its true. I have an online course in this if you want to check it out. Good luck
