What’s your story?

Does this sound like you?

You want your book done, but…

• You’re just too darn busy to actually sit down and put in the time writing your book.

• You don’t really like to write.

• You feel as though you’re not a great writer.

Have you been trying to write your book for months, even years, but things seem to continue getting in the way of you finishing? That is the one constant thing I keep hearing from authors I’ve coached over the years.

But, take a look at just a few of the things you’re missing by not finishing your book:

Instant Credibility in the Eyes of Those Who Are Considering Booking You to Speak.

I meet a lot of people who say they want to write a book. They tell me their title, the stories they want to share and how they will leverage author status, but surprisingly so few people actually do it. I’ve seen this so often that I’ve narrowed down what I believe to be the 5 biggest mistakes authors make so you can avoid these roadblocks to finishing your book.

Like many of us, I spent many years in corporate America being successful, but not fulfilled. I was living a life feeling that there’s got to be more.

So I embarked on a journey to discover, or re-discover, my purpose in life. What was it that I really wanted to do? I reminisced how years earlier; I had followed my passion working in personal development. I loved helping people change their lives for the better.

But I had left my passion behind in order to pursue more money. At the time, I thought it was the right decision. But I ended up spending the next twelve years selling software in corporate America.…

Have you ever dreamed of writing a book? Many people have, but its one thing to dream about it and quite another to start writing it. The inability to transfer what is in the mind through the keyboard has stopped many a wishful author. By following a few simple steps, you can realize your dream of crafting a book from scratch.

Prewriting:

You will not get very far if you have no idea what you want to write about. If you are having a hard time coming up with ideas, here are a few methods you can use to help get you started.

Have you been told by a friend or relative “That would make a great book!” You think to yourself, “Yes, yes it would.” But then fear and anxiety take over because you have no idea where to start the writing process.

While undertaking the goal of writing a book is admirable, it is a hard and sometimes long process. But like every worthwhile goal it can be done with some simple planning, goal setting and scheduling.

First Things First

Write down your idea. Take the time to outline all the topics you want to include in your book. You can do a simple 1, 2, 3, a, b, c type outline or if you think better through visual aids, create a mindmap of your book.…
