You’ve been looking for money making ideas and doing your research. You have thought of several different options but finally decided you’d like to try your hand at writing and selling eBooks. There’s only one problem. You can’t think of what you can write about that people would want to pay for. Don’t throw in your pencil–er, keyboard–just yet! Ideas are everywhere; you just need to know where to look.
1. Your Interests
New writers are always tempted to see what the best sellers are, so they can write something “just like X.” Unless you like “X,” however, this is a mistake. When you try to write something you care little about, your reader will know. It shows up in your tone, your craftsmanship, a hackneyed premise, and myriad little ways that all add up to a lousy book. That is, if you finish it at all. So list topics that interest you. What would you like to tell others about them? What would you like to know more about? What needs elaboration? What do you know that no one else does? Spend some time brainstorming about your favorite topics and you’re bound to come up with a long list of ideas suitable for an eBook.
