When you are in the process of collecting resources and data, don’t forget to write about yours or others experiences, stories leave a profound impression on your readers minds. Your stories will influence them more because they are able to relate to them. Some ways to use stories: open the chapter with one that best illustrates the point of the chapter; insert within the chapter a story as a teaching aspect. You might even solicit stories from friends to use, be sure to have them sign a rights to use statement for you.
When you get the hang of using stories you won’t want to be without them, they will move your book along in ways that you’ll never believe until you write it.
Remember, do something every day toward your book and promotion.
