When to write a book

Write a book when the following are true:

• You’re ready to move from writer to author.  

• You have an audience you’ve built.  

• Your book solves a problem for a certain person.  

• You can distill that problem you solve into one sentence.  

• Whatever you write…you write in a way others can recognize as you.  

• You’re willing to be vulnerable.  

Ann Handley expands on these concepts in her excellent newsletter.
