I’m sure you’ve made some mistakes when you’ve been writing. Here are a few things to avoid when you write.
You think you know it all, but you don’t.
This is the biggest mistake you can make when you’re writing. You think you’re an expert on your topic, and you know everything there is to know about it. You’ve read every book on the subject, you’ve talked to every expert in the field, and now you’re going to write a book about it!
The problem is, you don’t. You don’t know everything about your topic. You haven’t talked to all the experts in your field, so you can’t be sure that you’ve covered all the important points. And you haven’t read all the books on your subject, so there’s a good chance you’ve missed some important points that other people have already covered. So when you sit down to write your book, you have no idea what you’re talking about, and that’s going to show in your writing. It’s not going to be as good as it could be, because you’re not as good a writer as you think you are. You need to spend some time learning about your subject before you write, and then you need to read other people’s books on the same subject. That way, you’ll be able to see what’s important and what’s not. You’ll know what to write about and what to leave out. You won’t make as many mistakes as you would if you didn’t know what you were talking about in the first place. And your book will be much better than it would have been if you hadn’t made any mistakes at all. So the first thing you should do when you start writing is to read as much as you can about the subject. Then you can write a better book than you would have if you’d made all the mistakes you’re about to make. So don’t make the mistake of thinking that you know more than you really do. That’s a mistake that can cost you a lot of time and money, and it can also make your book a lot worse than it could have been. So if you want to write the best book you possibly can, don’t be so sure of yourself that you make the mistakes I’m about to tell you about. Read a lot, talk to other people who know more about the topic than you do, and make sure you know your subject well enough that you can cover it in a way that’s interesting and helpful to your readers. If you do those three things, then you’ll have a much better chance of writing a good book than if you just sit down and start writing without doing any of the things I’ve just told you to do. So that’s the first mistake you should avoid. Don’t make that mistake.
## The First Mistake You Should Avoid
When you write your first book, the most important thing you can do is to avoid making the mistake I’m going to talk about in this chapter. That mistake is thinking you know enough about your book’s topic to write it. If that’s what you think, you’re in for a big surprise. You’re not an expert, so don’t try to pretend that you are, or you’ll end up with a book that’s full of mistakes. So let’s talk about that mistake now, and I’ll tell you how to avoid it. I’ll also tell you why it’s such a big mistake, and how you can avoid making it in the future. Then I’ll give you some tips to help you avoid making that mistake again. But before we get to those tips, let’s take a look at the mistake itself. So here it is:
1. You Think You Know It All When You Start Writing Your Book.
2. So You Write a Book That’s Full of Mistakes Because You’re Not as Good a Writer as You Think You Are.
3. That Makes Your Book a Lot Worse Than It Could Have Been.
4. And It Could Cost You a Lot of Time and Money
5. Because You’ll Have to Rewrite the Whole Book.
6. If That Happens, You’ll Spend More Time Doing That Than You Would Have Spent Writing the Book in the First Place.
7. Which Means You’re Going to Spend More Money on Your Book Than You Should Have Had to Spend, Because It’ll Take You Longer to Write the Book than It Would Have Taken You to Write a Better Book
## The Mistake
Here’s what I mean when I say that you shouldn’t make this mistake. You shouldn’t start writing your book until you’ve read a lot about it, talked to other experts, and read as many books about it as possible. You should do all those things before you even think about writing your first draft of the book. And if you do that, then when you do start writing, you won’t be making this mistake:
– You’ll be writing the book because you really want to, not because you feel like you have to, or because you think it’s the only way to get your book published.
– You’ll be doing it because you want it to be the best possible book that it can be, and if you’re doing it for the right reasons, then the book you end up writing will be a lot better than the one you’d have written if you had started writing before you’d done all those other things.
So let’s look at some of the reasons why this mistake is such a bad one to make, and why you should make sure that it doesn’t happen to you. Then we’ll talk about some ways you can prevent it from happening to you, and some other things you should keep in mind when you’re writing. But first, let me tell you a little bit more about this mistake, so that you’ll understand what I’m talking about when I talk about it later in the chapter, and in the rest of the chapter as well. So what is this mistake? It’s when you think you know everything there is to know about a subject when you first start thinking about writing a book about it. You think you’re an expert on the subject, and that’s why you decide to write a book on it. But that’s not the way it works. You don’t need to be an expert in order to be a good writer, and you don’t have to have read every book on a subject in order for your book to be good. You just need to know enough to write something that’s worth reading.
