What you need to do to be ready to get quickly from first to last page of Write source book manuscript by the end of November also has a lot to do with the type of nonfiction book you choose to write.
The first thing you want to do as you prepare for a month-long nonfiction book-writing challenge is choose a topic for your project carefully.

If that still feels like a lot, then opt to write a guide, tip book or booklet. Many ebooks sold on Amazon today have only 5, to 20, words.

This is where preparation can help keep your fingers on the keyboard typing rather than perusing the Internet.
For each item in your plan—or your detailed table of contents, brainstorm the possible research you need and make note of it. Instead, create brackets in your manuscript that say [research here] and highlight them in yellow. Create a To-Do List Look over your content plan.
