Leo Babauta: secrets to writing an ebook in a week

To write an ebook in a week:

  1. Choose a small topic.
  2. Outline people’s problems quickly.
  3. Copy & paste past writing you’ve done on those problems, if any, as research (don’t use the posts verbatim!).
  4. Block off 3-4 days for writing only.
  5. Close the fucking Internet.
  6. Use a distraction-free writing tool, headphones & good music, and tea.
  7. Write like crazy in 30-minute intervals. Get up, stretch, do some exercises, repeat.
