As I mentioned in a previous post (before the website redesign), I have taken more time away from the Wordszilla blog to complete my own ebook. In doing so, I’ve written down some tips that you might find helpful if you’re in the process of writing an ebook. Now, I haven’t come up with something prophetic or unknown, but I feel these are good principles to keep in mind.

1. Know Your Audience: This seems pretty elementary, but you really have to understand your target audience. Doing so will help you know how to write and what to write.

2. Decide on True Cost: It seems that some people would see a direct relationship between the number of pages and value (i.e., a 50-page ebook should cost less than a 100-page ebook). But also consider that you’re selling your idea, not just a page count. Is your content revolutionary? Will your 10 pages change someone’s life? If that’s the case, perhaps you can charge more because of the effect your ebook will have on people.

3. First Write, Then Edit: Writing your whole ebook out first before editing each line will save time. I’m guilty of this every now and then, as I like each sentence to be perfect before I move on to the next. But, I have noticed that it’s much easier and more efficient to get the ideas out initially and then fine tune afterward.

Of course, these are only a couple of the things I have learned during my latest project. Do you have any tips for writing an ebook? Feel free to share your comments below or send an email to
