The Best Time to Write a Book is Now: Tips for Overcoming Fear and Starting Your Journey

You've been dreaming of writing a book, but the question is always, "When is the best time to start?" It's a daunting question that can easily lead to procrastination and fear. But the truth is, there is never a "perfect" time to start writing a book. The right time is NOW. In this blog post, we will explore how to pick a time, how to get over the fear of it being the wrong time, and how to take a leap of faith to start writing your book today.

1. How to pick a time:
Choosing the right time to write a book is all about finding a balance between inspiration and dedication. Inspiration can come from anything - a personal experience, a passion, or even a dream. Dedication, on the other hand, is about committing to a writing routine. It's about setting aside time every day, or every week, to write. Start by brainstorming ideas and asking yourself, "What inspires me?" Then, find a time that works for you, whether it's early in the morning, during your lunch break, or late at night.

2. How to get over the fear of it being the wrong time:
Fear is a natural obstacle when it comes to writing a book. You may worry that you're not ready, or that you'll fail. But the truth is, you may never feel completely ready. The important thing is to push past your fear and take action. Give yourself permission to write imperfectly. Remember, no one writes a perfect first draft. Don't let fear hold you back from sharing your story with the world.

3. There is never a "perfect" time:
Many aspiring authors believe that there is a perfect moment to begin writing a book. The truth is, there isn't. Life is unpredictable and you never know what's around the corner. The stars may never perfectly align for you to start writing your book. Instead, focus on creating the best environment for you to write in, regardless of what's going on around you in life.

4. The right time is NOW:
When it comes to writing a book, the most important thing is to take action. If you keep waiting for the perfect moment, it may never come. Now is the time to chase your dreams and tell your story. Don't wait for anyone else to give you permission to write your book. Begin today.

5. Your business deserves this:
Writing a book can do wonders for your business. It can help establish you as an authority in your industry, attract new clients, and provide a new revenue stream. It's never too late to start writing a book, and your business will only benefit from your efforts. Invest the time and effort into telling your story, and you may be surprised by the impact it has on your business and your career.

I do want to point out that there are a few key scenarios that should have you jumping at the idea of writing a book:

1. You are ready to make the leap into true thought leadership by scaling your message and reaching a broader audience
2. You know that your knowledge needs to go beyond you and your courses
3. You have a big idea and are ready to blaze a trail and make waves in your niche
4. You are ready to be a mentor to a bigger audience 
5. You are looking for a new (and better) way to spread your message to a new audience
6. You feel compelled to tell your story and change the lives of more people

These events should have you buzzing with eagerness at starting your book. 

In conclusion, there is never a perfect time to start writing a book. But, there is a right time to take action (and certain scenarios that practically demand you write a book), and that time is NOW. Finding inspiration and dedicating time to writing is crucial to getting started. Remember, fear is inevitable, but pushing past it is essential to achieving your goals. Don't let the unpredictability of life hold you back from chasing your dreams. Finally, remember that writing a book can have a profound impact on your business and your career. Embrace the journey, and start writing your book today.
