Write A Book

The first step to self-publishing a book is to write a book.


Be amazed.

It’s been estimated that over 200 million Americans say they want to write a book. If that’s so, odds are you want to write a book. Do you know the single difference between writers who have authored a book and writers who haven’t? A book.

My little book was forged in the study halls of 8th grade. It’s been a long time coming. Whether you take 9 years or 9 weeks to write your book, the best way you can be a step ahead of 200 million other book-writing hopefuls is to show up and do the work.

My first post in this 31 Days series is purposefully short. I want you to focus on writing. In that spirit I’ve linked my favorite writing resources to help spur your creativity. You can totally do this!

Start writing!

    You’re amazing! I’ve never had the desire to write a book, but if I ever do I’ll know who to talk to!
