Can Authors Use Agile Methods?

From time to time I toy with the idea of writing a book. One of the things which has put me off is the whole “big project” nature of the task. I am so used to test-driven, small-iteration, early-value working that slogging away for six months or a year on a single task seems particularly daunting.

An interesting possible solution to this is the idea of writing in an agile manner.
