Why should I write a purpose statement?

Write a Purpose Statement

Just about any successful author will tell you that the way to get your book rolling is to write a "purpose statement." This statement is a short, concise statement about why you are writing your book and what your book's purpose is. For example, you might write, "The purpose of my book is to: explore the many facets of self publishing for those new to self book publishing."

*Keep the statement short, and keep it in front of you as you write. Your book will be better when it follows your purpose!
