Write a book: start with your life

Want to write a book? Start with the events of your daily life.

What’s happening with you that would make a great topic for a book?

Here’s one author’s story: she wrote a recession cookbook.

Move over Nigella, the recession’s REAL domestic goddess is after your culinary crown | Mail Online reports:

“That evening I’d managed to cobble together a tasty, healthy meal from virtually nothing and it just came to me very suddenly. The next day I sat down and wrote a proposal. I didn’t really think anybody would take it up.’

Certainly she could never have dreamt that her guide to thrifty family-friendly food, written on a whim and ‘in-between doing everything else’, would become one of the publishing sensations of the year and see her hailed as not so much the new Domestic Goddess but the real Domestic Goddess.

Her book – ‘How to feed your whole family a healthy, balanced diet with very little money and hardly any time, even if you have a tiny kitchen, only three saucepans (one with an ill-fitting lid) and no fancy gadgets unless you count the garlic crusher’ – is about to go into its fifth reprint.”

Book ideas are everywhere. Just open your eyes, pick a topic, and take a leap of faith.
