If you are like a lot of people, you have an idea for a book. Many of you have friends and family telling you that you need to write your story down. I know some have worked on a manuscript for years.
What holds you back from taking the next step? Is it that you don’t “have time”. You don’t know where to begin. You are afraid you will suck at writing. Or you have some other reason that hundreds of other people also have for not ever writing that book.
When people ask me what I do, I am finally comfortable with my answer, “I am a writer.” It’s accurate. I am a writer. I have blogged now for about three years. I published Adopting the Fathers Heart in 2013. I have two ebooks published on Amazon.
But I still feel like I don’t know what I am doing most of the time.
I successfully got over the hurdle of writing and publishing content. But I have more that I want to write and publish. My recurring challenge is that I start writing projects, but then I don’t complete them. I become constipated with information and ideas of what to do next, how to do it best, and how to make it work.
Since publishing Adopting the Fathers Heart, the one thing I have consistently written is 1-2 blogs each week. That’s definitely not something to be ashamed of, but I wasn’t sure where I wanted to go with my writing.
I knew that I needed two things:
- A proven system. Most sites, “experts”, or training that I have found about how to write, publish, market, etc. But I get overwhelmed with all of the information. Or the information motivates me to try some ideas. What ends up happening is I have several partially completed projects with no end-game in sight.
- Accountability. It’s hard for me to set up accountability when I don’t know what I want to accomplish. When I understand my objective or goal, I am more likely to share it with someone who will help me work toward that goal within an agreed schedule.
This is why I decided to join the Self Publishing School! (this is an affiliate link)
Chandler Bolt has developed a system that takes students from “blank page to bestseller.” The school also provides multiple layers of accountability like a personal coach, an “accountabilbuddy” (a fellow student), and mastermind groups.
Chandler has used his system personally to publish five bestsellers so far, as well as, help hundreds of others do the same.
I was hesitant to make the investment, but Chandler gives a 30 day money back guarantee.
I feel confident that the Self Publishing School will not only help me write and publish the books I am working on, but will also help me create better content that meets the needs of my audience.
So, if you are an inspiring author, or want help self publishing your next book, I highly recommend checking out the Self Publishing School.
You should know that I am not benefitting from this at all! I just know that many of you reading this are just like me. You want to write that book, but you need to know how and be held accountable to getting it done!
P.S. I am always open to chatting with you about your experience or aspirations to write. So, please drop me a note if you want to do that.
