How Research and Story Combine to Create a Transformational Journey

The kind of book that transforms a reader goes deeper than most authors are willing to go. But are we going to go there on Zero to Book? You bet we are.

The best way to back up your big idea is to support it with research.

But research can be a rabbit hole you follow, and follow, and follow … that keeps you from getting around to writing your book.

And if you’re not careful, you can wield your research to confirm your preexisting biases rather than support your big idea realistically.

To avoid these two fates, we’re going to talk about how research and story combine to create a book that that takes your readers on a transformational journey.

In this episode Jeff Goins and Pamela Wilson discuss:

  • How to silence your inner marketer and just write
  • Why research for the sake of research makes for a very boring book
  • A simple shift in thinking that puts the role of research in perspective
  • How to weave together story and research to build a more compelling book
