Ask the Coach: How do I choose among book ideas?

Ask the Coach, Beth Mende Conny, your writing questions

Q: I have so many book ideas. How do I choose among them?

A: To limit the number of possibilities, ask yourself the following questions. Your answers will help you make a more informed decision.

  • When did this particular idea first enter your life?
  • Where were you personally and professionally at the time?
  • What promise, challenge or appeal did it have?
  • Given how you’ve changed in recent months or years, does the idea reflect the new, improved and true you?
  • Does it complement the other parts of your life?
  • Do you have the time, money and resources to tackle it?
  • Finally, and most important: Does it make you happy? Does it make your heart say, “yes, yes, yes”? Any idea that doesn’t, gets crossed off your list.
