All of these can be said. It just depends on HOW you wish to say it. If you say "I do like to write a book," then it would be best said after someone says something in regards to books. When you use 'do,' you sort of confirm something.

For example:

Johnnie: Do you like to write books!

Me: Actually, I do like to write books! (as if being said in wonder and amazement)

 

Or. . .

Johnnie: You hate writing books, right?

Me: Well, no. Actually, I do like to write! (said in defiance or objection)
