How to Write a Book in 24 Hours (CASE STUDY)

hey guys so in today’s video I wanted to do with brief case study on how I wrote my first book and I was able to get it done in about 24 hours worth of work I also want to show you three ways that you can write your book in as little as 24 hours worth of effort towards 24 hours worth of actual work time so back when I first wrote my first book was a fitness book and I had been working out for a while I’ve read a lot about fitness I’ve learned a lot about fitness and diet and I decided that I want to write a book about it so I’ve gotten decent results and my angle in my hook was you know I’m a regular guy has taken information that’s readily available about fitness and I actually applied it to myself and I shared what works for me it works for other people that are in a similar situation to B so that’s kind of the background of how I came up with the topic of the book so I knew I wanted to write a fitness book but I still have a job you know at the time I had two kids now I have three kids and I had to figure out the fastest quickest way to get the book written so what I did is number one and I talked about this more about online course is I created an outline so I listed out like the eight or ten chapters I wanted to write in the book and I gave each chapter like a really compelling you know intriguing chapter title and then I proceeded to create a table of contents so for each chapter I listed out like three or four main sub chapters that I wanted to write and then under those sub chapters I wrote down three or four bullet points and main concepts that I want to each sub chapter to include and once I have my outline that was probably like 70 or 80 percent of the work because once you know what you want to say actually writing the book is relatively simple so with that said once you have an outline again I gotta cover this a lot more in my course but once you have an outline then you have to actually get the book written so the first way is actually write the book right so most people kind of find it daunting to sit in front of a computer and stare at a blank page and start writing but once you have an outline and you’ve already written out what your points what your chapters are what your sub chapters are what yours the main points of the subchapter are gonna be writing is pretty easy that all you have to do is enter your own personal experiences or stories and in research you have many any obstacles you broke through any aha moments of your discoveries any realizations you had and then you will see your skeleton of an outline really start to take effect and and look like a real book right so if you work hard at it and if you’re smart about it you can get it done in an hour a day and at the end of a month even less than a month you can have a full book written right so that’s the first and most straightforward way to get a book written but again it starts from your outline the second way and I did this for the science to get in rift which is my first book is not only did I create an outline but I started plugging in content that either I had written in the past or that I found online into my outline so that made my outline look more you know more flush and more full and then what I did is I decided to transcribe it so right now I’m driving in my car and you see that I’m recording this video as I’m driving so what I did is I used the voice recorder on my phone and I started transcribing or I started dictating my book so I had my my outline I had all my chapters my subchapters don’t like my main points in each subchapter and I started speaking it to my phone and believe it or not each chapter probably took ten or fifteen minutes to actually speak so literally in a matter of just a couple of hours I had my entire book transcribed now I wouldn’t have more I’m sorry I dictated into an audio file and I wouldn’t have been able to do that if I didn’t have a solid outline that I was working from and then once I had my audio file on my phone I submitted it to a company called that’s our Evie is in Victor and they charge a dollar per minute of audio transcription so my book why don’t you know the full transcribed version was probably maybe like two hours about 120 minutes so I spent a hundred and twenty dollars to get my entire book taken from you know audio files on my phone to an actual written manuscript and that was amazing and I have to say that if I didn’t you know if I didn’t find out about I probably wouldn’t have been able to write my book so quickly and so easily now of course once you get your book you’re gonna have to go back and edit it and tweak it and add to it that takes a few hours worth of work focused dedicated work but it’s not terribly difficult to do when it’s not impossible and then the third way to write your book and this is what I do now sometimes as well is I hire ghost writers now Tim Ferriss talked about that in the 4-hour workweek back ten years ago when that book came out it was a revolutionary concept for any that people actually hire and commissioned other people to write content for them and the more you learn about how the publishing world works the more you realize that a lot of big-name authors fiction and nonfiction have ghost writers writing for them now they may not be writing the entire story from start to finish and they shouldn’t but they’re doing a lot of the research a lot of the character development in the case of fiction fiction books where the case with nonfiction again doing a lot of the research coming up with a lot of the studies that the author will then end up citing in the actual final book so that’s what I do now I pay a ghost writers to take my outline and turn that into a live look now most of the time actually all the time what they give me is not ready to be published I can’t put my name on it because I didn’t actually write it and it’s usually lacking a personal touch you know a lot of times ghost riders will do a good job of doing research for you and and put it together like pretty dry sterile technical content especially for writing a lot nonfiction topics like myself but that’s when I go back and I go over what they wrote and I change it I reword it I add my own stories my own breakthroughs my own insights my own discoveries and that’s what really makes the book mine and that’s what really makes a book come alive in my experience so those are three ways to get your book written and you can literally do it in 24 hours now I’m not talking about 24 hours like 24 hours from now 24 hours from now but I’m saying within 24 hours so if you spend a weekend let’s say you spend 8 hours on the Saturday 8 hours on a Sunday and another 8 hours you know spread out throughout the the following week a couple hours a day you can get your book written and that’s probably the biggest hurdle the biggest obstacle that people have if they don’t think that they have time to write a book but if you use these three strategies one is obviously to have an outline that’s the foundation of this entire model but once you’ve your outline you’ve read it yourself you just find the time schedule it and write just an hour to a day the second way is to transcribe your book so dictate and speak into your phone you know what you want to say and get that transcribed on a site like Reb com4 and third way is to hire ghost writers and go hiring ghost writers a little bit tricky because most of the time you’re not gonna find good ghost writers so I wouldn’t recommend that right away but the easiest way is to use option number two which is just to get your book dictated into your phone and then get it transcribed so hopefully that helps again I cover a lot more that in my course but I might also download my free cheat sheet as an 11-page guide that shows you exactly how I took my first book which is called the science getting ripped from just an idea to a best-selling book in just a matter of a couple months and that really became the foundation of my entire book business and you know this YouTube channel and you know everything I’m doing stop publishing now so you can get that cheat sheet from
