Demi Lovato’s Writing Challenge: Finding the Time

demilavatoCelebrity Demi Lovato has a new book out about overcoming her battles with drug addiction and eating disorders called Staying Strong: 365 Days a Year.

Like many writers, Lavato’s biggest challenge was finding the time. ”A lot of people don’t really write their own books [they have ghost writers], which is probably something that anybody who’s not a natural author really needs,” she told Celebuzz. “But this [writing my book] was really easy because it wasn’t a memoir. I have first drafts covered in coffee stains!”

Like many writers before her, Lavato said that deadlines helped her pull it off and get the book done.
