Coming up with the right book idea can be a serious challenge regardless of how experienced you are as a writer.Whether you’re a brand new writer or a seasoned author ready for a new writing project, it can be incredibly difficult to find the inspiration you need, in order to commit to an endeavor as arduous as writing a book.
However there are many ways in which you can find the ideas that have the potential to turn into a best selling book.
Here are three ways to come up with the best book ideas that’ll set you on the journey of being a Best Selling Author.
1.Identify A Need: Think about a problem you think your book would proffer a solution to. You can also write about a subject you’re interested in. Are there any obvious gaps in the market where you can share your knowledge? Is there something you’ve always wanted to learn more about, but can’t ever seem to find much reliable information on? Answering this questions could kickstart a great idea for your new book.
2.Read one of your favorite Books or Podcasts; If you’re a writer, then I’d be willing to bet that you’re also an avid reader and consumer of educational content. You probably have favorite books, podcasts, or movies, and possibly even specific chapters or passages within these content pieces that you particularly admire. Reread these passages and see if they inspire you to come up with your own material, possibly expanding on the original subject to develop your own unique book idea.
3.Record Talks or Workshops You Give and Have Them Transcribed: Do you have the opportunity to give talks or hold in-person workshops to teach people about a specific subject matter? This could be work-related, or it could simply be a subject on which people recognize you as being knowledgeable. Unless you are an off-the-cuff speaker, you have probably already prepared a lecture or resources that’ll serve as the foundation for this book idea, which will in turn widen your audience and potentially lead to more paid speaking gigs.
