When you come home from a conference and think about all the things you need to do—and haven’t yet done or aren’t quite sure how to do—before you try to publish your book, do you feel discouraged? You aren’t alone.
After hearing all those speakers and experts tell them what they should or must do to get published, many writers feel inclined to pack up their manuscripts and give up their dreams of becoming published authors. Building an author’s platform feels too large a task. They have no desire to take on the business end of being an author, such as publicity and marketing. They don’t want to spend their time—or money—on a professional who will help them write a proposal or edit their book. So, they consider quitting.
I’m here to tell you not to quit. If publishing a book is your dream, make it come true. Leave that conference and recommit to realizing that dream. Yes, writing and publishing a book involves lots of hard work. Yes, it involves doing things you may not want to do—and spending your time doing things you don’t want to do that have nothing to do with writing per se. Yes, it can be expensive.
Commit yourself to manifesting your dream of writing and publishing your book anyway.
You can do it. I know you can. Call me or email me if you need help manifesting your dream.
