What to write and how to write it
When writing an eBook, we need to understand who we are writing for. If we are converting an already printed book into a digital form, that is going to have all the problems of a traditional book. Still, if you’re going to write an e-book that is solely going to be marketed towards digital media, then we need to understand the need for it and put in the appropriate effort.
Focus on the medium
E-books are not read on paper. They are read on an eBook reader such as a Kindle or an iPad, and that is why you need to be careful of the fact that they need to be short and consistent and still deliver all the required information that needed to be served.
Liberate the topic
E-books need to be focused as this is a very liberating format where you can have a large audience as there is not a need for an external literary agent or a book publisher as a lot of online platforms allow you to self-publish e-books. Therefore you don’t need to focus on those barriers. You need to focus on the content that you are going to be delivering.
Knowing the audience
You need to figure out who your target audience and then you need to tailor your book for them. You cannot write your book and expect everyone to be happy with it. You need to be okay with the product that you are selling because everyone has a very varied interest in everything. Therefore you need to focus on one audience and cater to it completely. If you are writing for everyone, you will be writing for no one, and that is one of the biggest issues that a new writer will face.
Curate your content
One other issue that has risen from the rise of self-publishing e-books is the lack of credibility and authenticity. When everyone can write a book, there is a high chance of someone spreading false claims, myths, and rumors to promote his project, and that is going to affect journalism and writing in a very negative way. To avoid that kind of perception, you need to focus on your content and keep it as authentic as you can, and that can only happen if you research your topic and make sure that you deliver the very best.
Learn as you go
The biggest step anyone needs to take when writing a book is going to be the very first step that is starting the book. When you start writing, you will find your way as you go along, and you’ll figure out whatever story you are trying to tell.
The main obstacle when you start writing a book is going to be motivated, and when you start writing, you will start seeing some real progress. It would be best if you carried on this practice until you are done with your book.
