Writing a book: look for an outside perspective

Writing can be really hard. When you're stuck, call up a friend with a different way of thinking, or talk to a friend who's writing a book to help you think through the issue in your book.

You can also reach out to other writers that can provide support. One way to find them is to read the acknowledgements in books.

There's no one "right" way to write

Some writers plan first. Other writers just jump in and wing it. Some writers are in-between planning and winging it.

You don't need to know which kind of writer you are when you're starting out. Just try something and see what works for you.
