Writing a book is a team event

Feb 18, 2014 | Writing A Book

In the popular imagination, authors work all alone to create their books. That may be true for some fiction writers. But if you want to write a great business book, you’ll do better if you understand that writing a book is a team event.

Writing is definitely a solitary activity. There’s no way to get around the fact that at some point someone needs to write the book. He or she will do that part alone, but teammates will make the book better. Here are some to consider.

  • Editors
  • Beta Readers
  • Knowledgeable friends
  • Loved ones
  • Manuscript reviewers
  • Researchers
  • Writing Coach (I love that one)

If you’re setting out to write a book, don’t make the journey alone. Involve team members who will make it more fun and less stressful. They’ll help make the book better, too.
