A Writer’s Journey: How to Start Writing Your Law Book

Knowing why you want to write your book is the start of your journey as a writer. It is what will keep you writing when you want to quit, and until your book is complete, so that it accomplishes your purpose for your book.

ABOUT THE COURSE

If you never thought you could write a law book, perhaps now is the time to seriously consider giving back by writing about what you know that can instruct and help others.

With the help of this course, you will reflect on the first four things as the first big step towards writing your law book.

At the end of this course, you should be able to:

  • Identify the first four things needed before you start writing
  • Answer key questions about these first four things
  • Take practical steps in managing time, overcoming writer’s block, and avoiding burnout
  • Plan a legal research strategy for the topic you want to write about

Then you will take 3 more steps – you will envision your Preface, Introduction, and Content Outline.

With these 3 steps, you can start writing your law book.  

Identify your motives and motivations for writing and get the “de-motivations” out of the way.  Writing your first book is a pen and notebook away.
