Build On Previous Work

Do your best to build your writing project through your personal, professional or academic pursuits. If you are engaged by your writing project, then you will probably find that it relates directly to many other things that you are doing.

Here are some examples: Are you teaching a course on something related to your writing project? Write lectures that can be molded into chapters or shorter articles. Are you writing emails to friends about various aspects of your project? Save the key parts to edit and fit into your query letter as you start to submit to agents and publishers. Are you reading widely on the subject? Write reviews of those books as you work towards becoming an expert on the subject.
