    Today, Joe Bunting provides a free 15 page guide to planning and writing your book.
    "Every day I talk to people who want to write a book. Most never actually write one, though, which really bothers me.

    The biggest reason people don’t finish is that they never even start. They make excuses like, “It’s too big of a project” or “I’m not a good enough writer” or “I don’t even know how to write a book” or even “I’m not sure I have what it takes.”

    And to be honest, people have good reason to be so intimidated. Because writing a book IS a huge project.

    If you want to actually write a book and not just talk about writing a book, you need a guide.

    Without a guide to show you the way, writing a book can feel like a daunting goal. If you don’t know where you’re going, it’s all too easy to quit, leaving unfinished pages gathering dust.

    I’ve been there, and I know how hard it is. In fact, I nearly quit writing my first book. At every point along the way, I was stumped, wondering what it would take to make my dream a reality.

    Now, I’m editing the third draft of my seventh book. By now, I’ve learned what it takes, and I’m sharing that process with you in a guide I wrote called the Book Writing Roadmap.

    The Book Writing Roadmap is the exact process I’ve used to help hundreds of people finish their books. And today, I want to help you finish your book by giving it to you absolutely free."

    Phy- thanks for sharing this. I have a quick question if you don't mind. In your step one, you mention ( and I have seen this in other places as well) the protagonist as singular. In my series, there are 7 protagonists. Everything I have seen usually mentions the protagonist as a single. My story won't work with a single protagonist. I believe I can still follow the steps you have laid out, I'm just looking for a little advice on having multiple protagonists.

    Thanks-
    Rachel

    This would be a great topic for a tangent post.

    Here are a couple of articles which talk about how to write multiple protags:

    I wasn't able to get the link to work. Do you have an actual URL to share?
