A simple exercise is that I took the list on Steven Honders’s Blog – 125 things I learned while developing games, and modified the list and replaced specific words such as “Developing” To “Writing” and “Games” to “Books”

It was amazing how much crossover there is in the list.. I think it was 99% applicable to what I’m trying to do.

I’m sure a similar exercise would work for any of your creative efforts as well.  You can substitute ‘games’ for ‘writing’ or ‘dance’ or ‘acting’ or ‘composing’ and it mostly works.   I heartily recommend the exercise..
