Episode 2 of the Ideas to Books Podcast shares tools, tips, and techniques for brainstorming your books.
What you’ll learn in this episode:
Whether you write fiction or nonfiction, books begin with an idea. In order to develop that initial idea into enough content to fill a book, you’ll need to brainstorm. There are a lot of types of books, and there are a lot of ways to brainstorm. This episode shares some brainstorming techniques as well as tools you can use during the brainstorming process.
Best tip of the episode:
Many books, especially nonfiction, rehash the same old content on their main topic. During the technique segment, I share a tip about how to delve deeper, beyond typical content on your topic, in order to make your book stand out from the competition.
Best quote of the episode:
“There’s a lot more to writing a book than writing a book.” ~ Linda Fulkerson
I blurted that out without giving it much thought, but after thinking about it for a moment, I realized how true that statement is. I’ll be using it on some social media graphics. Feel free to share it (with attribution, please) on your social media graphics, too.
