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.
“That evening Iâ€™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 didnâ€™t really think anybody would take it up.â€™
Certainly she could never have dreamt that her guide to thrifty family-friendly food, written on a whim and â€˜in-between doing everything elseâ€™, 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 â€“ â€˜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 crusherâ€™ â€“ 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.
