Writing is, of course, the first word that comes to mind when you are considering a book. Writing is the most time consuming aspect of any book project because it includes everything—the cover, the chapters, the front matter (preface, introduction, acknowledgments), and the back matter (index, appendices, bibliography).
Writing requires determination, discipline, and a long attention span ... not to mention the ability to string sentences, paragraphs, and pages together. Even if you are a writer, it may seem a daunting prospect; if you have never actually written, you may wonder if it is possible.
Depending on where you are on that continuum, help is available in many forms, from taking a seminar or finding a good editor to hiring a professional ghostwriter. Bobbi Linkemer can help you explore any of these options.
