So you want to write a book, but how? It’s difficult to imagine accomplishing such a task while mothering and running a home. I just did it, and here are my six best tips for meeting your goal of writing a book.
In January 2016 I was determined to finally take steps towards reaching my goal of writing a book. I am a stay-at-home-mom of two little boys who we are in the process of adopting from foster care. Our days are often filled with therapy appointments, case worker visits, and all-things-typical-parenting like wiping noses, changing diapers, and not getting enough sleep.

I’ve wanted to write a book for a few years now, and my experience with the foster adoption process gave me a unique message to share with the world. There are many reasons to write a book, some of which include passive income, a bucket-list goal of being published, or to see lives changed through the message that is shared. My reason for writing includes each of those goals to some extent.
Shortly after deciding that writing a book was my goal for 2016, I enrolled in an online course to help me get there. I truly could not have accomplished this goal without the framework that Self-Publishing School laid out for me. The instructor walked me through each and every step from first idea, to the writing process, to publishing and marketing my very first book. I highly recommend this course to anyone who wants to be an author!
In addition to what I learned in the course, I grew in self-discipline and personal motivation as I learned to work harder and smarter than I ever have.
If writing a book is something you’ve ever considered doing, here are my top six tips for reaching that goal (even if you’re in the busy, tiring, trenches of motherhood like I am).
