Any journalist who says she doesn’t want to write a book is a liar—or no journalist. While most journos think they have a book in them, few actually manage to put it between the covers.
Canadian journalist Rod McQueen, who has written 12 non-fiction books in the last 25 years, has a surefire recipe for the procrastinators.
“Write 500 words a day and by the end of a year you’ll have enough for a book. It’s that simple. And that difficult.”
McQueen has more advice: choose your topic carefully; start writing immediately; check out secondary sources, do database searches, prowl libraries; and make contact with at least one person who can help.
