Seven Tips for Writing a Rough Draft When Copywriting a Book

Set A Time Limit

One of the most difficult things about writing a book is trying to figure out where
to start and how to end it. You want to write clean and professional, but at the
same time, you want to keep the reader interested and excited about the story. To
help with this, set a time limit for yourself. No matter how talented you are,
you will never be able to produce a full-length book in just a few weeks. Setting
a time limit will force you to buckle down and get the job done, rather than
wasting weeks on a book that you won’t have time to complete.

Write In Short Scenes

One of the best tips that I was given when I began my career as a writer was to
write in short scenes. This is especially useful when writing a book, as opposed to
a long-form article, because it makes it easier to move the story along. Short
scenes also keep the reader interested, as they give the impression of being
quick and easy to read.

To take an example from my own experience, when I was first put in charge of
creating a monthly newsletter for a global insurance company, I was given the
burden of coming up with content for the entire month. While a long-form
piece on the pros and cons of umbrella policies might have been an interesting
topic to explore, I was only given a few weeks to come up with a complete
newsletter for the entire company. Not only did I have to come up with content
for the entire month, but I also had to create a custom design for the
newsletter as well.

Writing a rough draft is difficult, and none of us are born with the natural
talent it takes to do it well. However, with enough hard work and practice,
anyone can become a decent writer. So, don’t be discouraged if you don’t
immediately grasp the intricacies of writing. With a little bit of practice,
all of us can be masters of our craft.
