The simple first step to becoming an author

You’ve been called to write a book!
You may have been told by someone else that your life story is incredible.
You may even have made a start, stalled and left it by the wayside.
Maybe you’ve even been too afraid to take the first step!

Finding the time to write, uncertainty about your message and feeling insecure about a process that is unchartered territory for you can be some of the biggest handbrakes for aspiring authors – they can even nip at the heels of established authors who are looking to make an even bigger splash with their consecutive books – no one is immune.

So what is the solution?

Get clear.

It’s simple, but not easy.

I find clarity is key in the early stages of writing a book.

You need clarity of your purpose.

You need clarity on what you have to offer.

You need clarity on who you are speaking to.

What is the simple first step?

Schedule some time in to really think these five key questions:

  1. Why do you want to write a book?
  2. What is your lived experience?
  3. What lessons have they taught you?
  4. How did you come to learn what it is you have to share?
  5. How can your message inspire, educate or improve the lives of your readers?

Letting these questions ruminate in your mind, or even taking them with you to your journal time if you regularly jot your thoughts down, will be great first steps towards helping you to solidify the best direction for your book.

Imagine being a published author by the end of 2020 or poised to launch your first book in early 2021?!

It can be a reality if you simply make a start today.
