Anybody Can Write
You don't have to be Stephen King to write a 10-20 page manual on the subject which you know. A
marketing expert won't be able to write a manual on breeding salt-water fishes unless he does a thorough
research on the subject. But YOU can, if breeding salt-water fishes is your hobby or
your subject of research.
Picking a subject to write about - one that has sales appeal and that will sell well for you - is not as hard as
it sounds. The best rule to follow is to write only about something you already know a great deal about.
With this advice in mind, it will follow that your best
writing will be about those subjects that particularly interest you. And remember, the more you are involved or
interested in the subject, the easier it will be for you to write about that subject in a manner that will hold your
Your knowledge and enthusiasm will show through - causing your reader to overlook any technical writing
Know Your Market
There are hundreds of publications filled with ads by people just like yourself, who discovered they could
make a lot of money writing and publishing their own work. Looking through opportunity ezines, or other
publications that cover the field you are interested in, is a good place to start
looking for ideas.
Review all the advertisements in the ezines you have chosen to see what popular topics and subjects are
being written about in books, manuals, reports and newsletters.
Then ask yourself if you can come up with a better way, or have equally interesting information you can
present from a different angle, or with a different twist that would also be of interest to the readers in that
If the answer is "yes," then you can enter that market and also make some incredible money!
Research, Research, Research!
Once you've decided on the subject you're going to write about and analyzed the market, the next step is
thorough research. Visit your public library and "bone up" on your subject. Read as much about it as you
can find - newspapers, magazines, books - everything!
Start collecting clippings, talk to your neighbors, your friends and relatives, and take notes on all
information you gather from reading and personal discussion.
When you've spent a good six weeks intensively researching your subject, gathering notes and discussing it
as often as you can with as many different people as possible, you should be ready for the next step - the
sorting, compiling and assembly of your notes.
Simply read through all the notes and clippings you have accumulated, discarding those that are repetitious,
and organizing those you're going to use according to your "subject coverage" outline.
The Future Is ePublishing
