Writing a book is often thought of as a journey. A thing you do once you're ready. A thing you venture into the woods to complete.

More clearly: it's often thought of as HARD.

Now, I write for living as of the moment... so, take this with a grain of salt, but I think writing a book is easy.

It's simply becoming an expert at a topic, bulleting out the things that matter within that topic, and writing about those. Putting them in one document. Designing a cool cover. Connecting to the readers, and hitting publish.

Now, I have loads of resources to make writing a book easy for you - but before I can support you with those, let's figure out if you actually are ready to write a book!
