What if I’m nervous about writing my book?

It’s completely normal to feel anxious about writing a book. Here are some tips that may help.

  • Create an outline for your book before you start writing.
  • Set time aside each day for writing in a distraction-free environment.
  • Don’t try to write your book all at once — break it into sections.
  • Remember that your book doesn’t have to be perfect the first time.
  • Don’t worry about what others will think.

If you’re more nervous about publishing than the actual writing, it helps to partner with a publisher who genuinely cares like Palmetto.
