Why You Don't Need Permission to Write a Book


How do I write a book?

A question a lot of would-be authors ask everyday.  Actually sitting down thinking of a subject or even thinking about writing a work of fiction seems really hard to a lot of people.

Yes anyone can write a book, there is no financial or physical resources required to do so.  If you're looking to publish your book, that's a different matter altogether.  Books have been written in all kinds of strange places from prison cells to trains.


It doesn't matter how bad your grammar or spelling may be, you're in good company.  You'd be joined by the likes of Jane Austen, Agatha Christie, Ernest Hemingway, the  list goes on.  If you really want to get serious, it requires thought, work and a whole lot of effort.

If you're wondering how to get started in your publishing career its no surprise that we live in a digital age, so many free resources are already at your fingertips.  Companies such as Amazon provide a ready-made platform with software to process and bring your books to life.  There's no need to look for a publishing house you can send your manuscript straight to print without worrying about where to get the financial help to do so.

Again it takes time and effort to make your book legible and relate able to your audience.  Are you the kind of writer that's only in it for the fame and wealth.  There's no magic wand that can be waved to make sure your book is a bestseller.  Once you've written your book you have to spend the time promoting your book and get word out that you're an author, making sure people know who you are, otherwise all of your hard work is dead in the water.

These days you don't have to be a great writer to sell books.  That can clearly be seen by Amazons list of bestsellers.

If you love writing, and want to put your thoughts on paper, there's nothing stopping you.  Go for it! Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.
