Just a question, how do you write a book if you don't know what to write?
You don't I guess!
Some will write about a topic that they feel knowledgeable or passionately about, whilst others will research topics which they believe will generate a lot of sales.
The choice is yours Lisa.
Why not try writing a few recipe hubs here on HP to see how well they are received. If you get a lot of views, then you'll know if you're on to something or not!
The only thing I would say about that Lisa, is that there are a lot of them about and people typically buy from celebrity/well-known chefs. Ideally, you will need to take a lot of original photos.
Check out some of the free downloads from Amazon Kindle to see what the competition is like for an unpublished author. Good luck....only you can make it happen!
If you don't know what to write, take inspiration from the world around you. I take most of my inspiration from dreams and music.
If you don't know what to write, then why do you want to write a book? For most authors, it's the desire to write about a specific thing that makes them want to write a book in the first place.
For instance, someone who loves writing about food and who had amassed a lot of special recipes might feel a desire to create a cookbook from them. Someone who has spent years collecting antique clocks might feel a desire to share their knowledge in a book.
If you're just thinking, "I should write an ebook because it's another way to make money", then I wouldn't waste my time. You need a lot of solid information about your topic to write a whole ebook, and you'd probably be better off breaking that up and writing individual Hubs.
I became a self publisher at Amazon as it was very easy to do. I have not written anything or have anything published but I figure I might write a short story and see how it goes. I know that might not make me any significant money but I wanted to do it just for fun.
If writing a cookbook is your aim then start by deciding what sort of recipes you want to feature- pick your favourites and then give them your own little flare!
