While you are writing your book, if it doesn’t make you laugh, cry or think… it’s not worth putting on paper. Your words need to move you and inspire you, otherwise they will not inspire others. I go through all these emotions while I’m writing my books, even this last one that is more a technical guide. You still need to weave a personal story throughout to keep people interested. It doesn’t have to be a lot, but just a few paragraphs in the beginning to give it a human element that others can relate to. Maybe a funny story of something that happened that correlates to the information you are going to inform the readers of. It’s a skill learning how to do this. To educate people while keeping the engaged and entertained at the same time.
