Ever wonder how to write a book when you’re short on time?
Maybe you’ve still got a day job. Maybe you’re not a full-time writer, but it’s your dream.
So you write during slivers of precious free time, either before or after work.
How will you ever find the time to write a book?
Here’s a reality check…you won’t ever find the time. You’ll have to make time.
If you want to learn how to write a book, you must chisel out time for this from your already-packed schedule.
You may think: It’s no use. I’ve already tried. I’m way busier than you can imagine.
I get it. Really, I do. In fact, I’ve been there. Yet, I wrote the first 90 of my nearly 200 published books, while I still had a day job.

Are you sick of those dry spells that make you go back to begging for work as a freelance writer?

It feels like yesterday that I was self-publishing my very first e-book, Make a Living Writing: The 21st Century Guide. That one did so well that it’s no longer available (cough).
But I lived and learned, and created better e-books. As I prepped to release my latest, Small Blog, Big Income: Advanced Ninja Tricks for Profitable Blogging, I realized I now have TEN e-books available for sale, counting my free e-book for subscribers.
