I would like to be an author of a book. Usually, authors have some message to distribute to the mass. Writing a book is just one of the options.
But I would like to set this as a goal to learn one of the specific subjects.
Before writing a whole book by myself, I would like to start small as always this is one of my principles to move forward. So I am trying to publish a book by translating other books written in English to my mother tongue.
To approach the publishing company, I started to translate some of the parts in a book and later I would want to show the works to prove my work.
Also, we could divide the book into smaller parts and work on as a team.
The benefits of dividing the work would be as follows:
- a smaller chunk of work
- mutual review
you can get the review from the other author. Typically, if you write a book, you need to find other persons who are familiar with the topic. Also, you can collaborate with others to come up with better content.
- mentally supported
It could depend on persons but I feel this would be good for a beginner.
Of course, there are always drawbacks.
we need to spend the time to align the way of writing a book or translation. For example, an expression, terminology, and way of explanation should be consistent across an entire book.
I did not count writing a book as a way of earning money so it should not be that problem to share the revenue since it was already nothing. Dividing nothing becomes nothing.
