I’m a huge advocate of not starting a project–especially a big project–unless you know it has chance to succeed. Failure’s okay; we learn from it. However, writers and aspiring authors, like most people, have little time for failed project into which they invested hundreds of hours. Therefore, I’d never write a word of either a self-published book or one I hoped to have traditionally published unless I first evaluated that book idea’s success potential. That’s why today topic is just that–evaluating your book for success. How do you do that? You use what I call the “proposal process.” I’m your expert blogger today during Write Nonfiction in November. To read the whole post, please click here.
Have you tried using the “proposal process” on an idea and evaluating it for success before you began writing? What happened?
