How To Write A Gardening Book

If you are a gardening fanatic, then you have probably gone to book stores before with specific gardening books in mind. To your surprise, you are then bombarded by shelf upon shelf of books on every type of gardening imaginable except the one that you really want! Who knew there were this many gardening books? And what about going online? You know the internet is a good place to find information, so you go to your favorite search engine expecting to find exactly what you're looking for. Instead, you're just bombarded with tons of information overload. Again.
So what is the solution? It's actually not as hard as you might think. No, I don't want you to buy the bookstore. You could pay someone to sift through all the internet information, but that's not what I'm talking about either. Why don't you just write your own gardening book?
I know it seems to defeat the purpose of your research. You're probably thinking that if you knew anything about gardening, you wouldn't be looking in the first place!
You also might think that it's too tough to write a book, but I don't buy that. Writing a book doesn't have to be difficult, if you know how to talk then you know how to write! People love easy to read information, as long as it's quality info.
But you don't know enough about gardening to write a gardening book, right? I don't believe that! If you truly are a gardening enthusiast, then I'm sure you know enough to write a small book. I'm sure you remember digging up your mother's nice neat flower beds to see exactly 'how it worked'! So, you've got the essential know-how necessary to at least write one gardening book.
So now what? Get to work! The hardest part is just starting. Get in front of that computer and type! You might forget standard day-to-day activities once you start writing, but that's normal. You won't need to be reminded to water your garden, because meticulous gardener that you are, that'll be the last thing that you forget. You're an expert gardener, you just might not know it yet.
So what to do after you write? Take a nice break! Congratulate yourself on a job well done. Eventually, you'll want to start on a sequel because I'm sure your first book doesn't cover everything there is to know about gardening. There are always new developments to write about. Use your personal flare to attack a gardening niche from a new angle. Whatever you do, don't just sit back in your recliner and get all lazy on me. You are now a respectable author. So get out there and enlighten aspiring gardeners!
