81% of us have a book somewhere in inside our heads. (at least according to the NY Times)
I would have never thought I had Beautiful/Broken World inside mine until one year ago. And they suddenly, it flowed out, or at least trickled…lol. I am NOT a fast writer. In fact, that is one of my goals this year, to write faster. In the next week I plan to pick up Write 5000 Words an Hour, and hopefully it will have some good tips. Although I seriously doubt it will bump me to 5000 words an hour.
The article sited above talks about how difficult it is to write a novel, and I am here to attest… it is correct. It’s hard. Managing the story line and making sure you don’t flub up the characters, have a ton of plot holes and even keep the timeline straight can be overwhelming. All this doesn’t mean you shouldn’t give it a go if you really want to.
Challenging yourself is good. It breathes new energy into a maybe stale life.
I have (mostly) loved teaching myself something new over the last year. I have met and connected with amazing writers. And I built a world and story that never existed before. In my mind that is pretty awesome.
Teaching myself took a lot of work and research too, though. I was on the internet doing Google searches, like my first one about writing (How to write a novel?) and many, many more about specifics. You absolutely can do all the research on your own. But it’s nice to be guided though.
So when I saw this free video course from Self Publishing School, I thought I would pass it along to you. You will also get the book, Book Launch: How to Write, Market & Publish Your First Bestseller in Three Months, for free with the course (on Amazon it is $3.99).
Just so you are aware at the end of the course series you will have the opportunity to buy more courses, but it’s not required, and if you like you can just use the freebies. It only asks for your name and email to get the free course.
Let me know if you have ever thought of writing a book. I’d love to hear about it.
