how to write a nonfiction book

So, you want to write a book?

Setting out to write your first book can feel like looking straight up at a giant mountain without any climbing gear. But it might not be as hard as you think it is!

Did you know that the average nonfiction manuscript is around 60,000 words?

And did you know that three typed pages adds up to about 1,000 words?

What if you typed just three pages per day for 60 days?

Yep, that’s right. You’d have a manuscript!
