“I knew some good and bad things would happen to me, but, in the long run, all of it would be converted into words.” ~ Jorge Luis Borges

Really? After all this time we've spent together, you still haven't written that book yet?
Oh, you don't know what to write about?

Here, let me help you. Let's start with the above quote by Jorge Luis Borges–he had confidence, that at some point, he could convert the things that happened to him into words.

Once you get on the other side of pain, it's usually the bad things that happened that make for good & interesting stories.

Think of 10 personal experiences–you had in life that touched you deeply and write about them.
The other day, I watched one of my all-time favorite movies, 'The Five Heartbeats'.
There's a memorable scene where the lead singer Donald "Duck" Mathews caught his fiancée and brother cheating. During his acceptance speech at the BET Awards Ceremony he said,

"I was at a party once, and a critic said–


Well, I’m on my way to becoming a great writer, and I have two people to thank–my fiancée Tonya and my brother JT. My brother…who’s been the same selfish 'mutha fucker' since we were kids! To them, I owe my success."

The story goes on, with the group breaking up and Donald Duck Mathews becoming a successful solo singer and not talking to his brother for 20 years. Now that was a heartfelt and emotional experience he could write about.

Recently, I read an excellent book by S. L. McInnis, titled 'Control Your Drinking', where the author shared her life story about alcoholism and how she controls drinking without A.A. Rehab or Quitting Forever. It was raw and honest about how she nearly destroyed her life.

"I was drunk when I posed for my 1st author photo ... with a publishing company." What she said and her photo touched my heart. I reached out to her, and we collaborated on a project together.



The hardest part is getting started.

Make a Memory List of 10 things that happened in your life.

Write down your first experience–nobody needs to see it.

Don't worry about the chronological order. Start anywhere and wherever you like–you'll have plenty of time to straighten it out later.

Now think of another experience.

Write it down.

Repeat the process until you have 10 personal experiences written down on paper.

Now blend all the sentences into scenes and chapters.

Syntax and remove all the boring parts.

Proofread. Edit. Polish.


Now you have the makings of a Hollywood movie.

The key to writing your first book is simple:

Get started, and write it down on paper.

You don't have to know a lot of fancy words– write as you would normally talk, minus the jargon. Just like you're talking to a friend at the kitchen table.

Write, not a lot of detail. I hate reading a book with too many details and descriptions. It's like can you get to the point already for GOODNESS SAKE. Do you know what I mean? Boring.

1) Write it like you were the first to ever use English.

2) Don't worry about making mistakes–all first drafts are a piece of shit anyway. You can fix them later.

3) Don't write longer than 10-15 words in a sentence and then end it. Period.

4) Don't worry about how you can write a 200- page book? It doesn't have to be that long– most of those books are boring.

They contain about 20-40% unnecessary filler words and details.

Listen! I'm talking about something that I know about. I've written 20 books using this process in 3 years.

Nobody needs to know–you don't have to hear someone say that you can't do it.
Just type the first words on your computer.

How do you think JK Rowling wrote Harry Potter? She had never written a book in her life. Rowling was a divorced single mom and broke. After being stripped of her non-essentials and nearly homeless, she sat down with an old typewriter and typed the first words of Harry Potter down on paper.

You must also read a lot of books and study the structure, tone, and beats of the words and layout.

Ray Bradbury said, "I'd Retype sections of other people's novels to see how it felt coming out. Learn their rhythm."

J Fitch said the same thing, "Learn to look at your sentences. Make sure there’s music, lots of edges & corners to the sounds."


If your excuses for writing a book are high, and your reasons are low, you'll never write the first words.

But, if your MOTIVATION is high, and your excuses are low, you'll have no problem writing a book or achieving anything else you want.

There’s a stark difference between saying I write books and I invent things. “I invent things!” That motivates me.

So it all boils down to this. How bad do you want it? What motivates you to do it now?

When you're MOTIVATED, you can do anything!

Apply the steps I've given you and make your dreams a reality.
