Choosing a topic
It is important for you to write what you know. Though, you cannot know everything on the topic but it is essential that you have more than average knowledge about the topic you want to write. The topic should also be relevance to your target audience, period and environment.

Decide the purpose
As an author, you must decide the purpose your ebook is expected to serve before writing. You must know whether you want to inform or persuade your readers. You must also determine what you want to persuade or inform you readers about. You must also decide the focal point of your message i.e what you want your readers to always remember for a very long time.

Analyze your readership
Try to find out what your potential readers could have known about the subject, what can fascinate them, their beliefs, attitude and culture.


Moderate the topic
It is advisable to limit the topic of your ebook to a size you can handle in terms of time, space and materials.

Gathering of materials
The numerous sources you can gather materials for your ebook write up are:
through personal experiences and observation, through research on the Internet, the library, interviews, books, dialogue, magazines, movies, forums, art, music, writing group, travel, history, quotes, nature, religion, children, dreams, newspapers, poetry, writing journals, freelancing, brainstorms, success stories, watching people, questions, criticism, arguments,comments, ebooks etc.

Material arrangement
After gathering your relevant materials on your chosen topic, then arrange the materials such that the writing will be easy to understand.

Prepare a draft
First, prepare a rough articles which are flexible to correction and ready to accommodate new ideas generated during the writing process before narrowing down at the final papers.

Editing and revision
You can seek the assistance of your friends and colleagues to read your ebook and comments before you publish. This is called proofreading and is usually done to avoid errors from punctuation, vocabulary, spelling, syntax, ambiguity and clumsy expressions.
