“You published a book? I could never do that”

Image result for self publishing

It’s really not that hard.  With self-publishing on the rise nowadays, it’s easier than ever to publish a book.  Oftentimes, that’s the only reassurance that people need.  After ages of wondering if we “have what it takes” to go “big time”, we no longer have to worry.  We can, more or less, decide for ourselves whether or not we establish ourselves in the writing universe.

Don’t be one of these people that thinks that publishing, even self-publishing, is impossible.  No doubt, it requires hard work and perseverance.  But there’s plenty of people doing it, so why not you?

Make note, however: if you choose to go down the road of self-publishing, be prepared to work REALLY hard.  Nothing will be handed to you.  The road is fully of bumps and curves, and sometimes, you even have to go uphill.  I’m not telling you this to scare you; I’m telling you this because it’s true!

Self-publishing has been one of the most satisfying things I’ve ever done.  Do you know what it’s like to see your book come up in a search bar?  To hold your own book in your hands?

It’s awesome, and it’s available to everyone.

If something is holding you back from publishing, shake it off and move forward.  Opportunity is knocking in today’s day and age.  Don’t miss out!

To Live The Dream

i-am-a-writer

When you wake up in the morning, what’s the first thing that comes into your head? What do you look forward to each day? What inspires you to rise?

As authors or bloggers seeking publicity, we all wake up each day, hoping that today will be better than yesterday. We have goals we are constantly pursuing, and we want to believe that each day, we are getting closer to those goals. HOPEFULLY, every day starts with hope.

So don’t let that hope be for nothing.

I am writing this to inspire you, but also to inspire myself. Don’t believe that anything can stop you, and nothing will. If your goal is to become a better blogger, don’t let your doubts get in the way. If you want to become a world famous author, why let the “odds” stop you? Life isn’t about gaining. It’s about giving something, and giving FOR something or someone. The funny thing is though, it’s only by giving that we are truly able to gain.

What are you willing to give to reach your goals?

I am a doubtful person. I am far from optimistic. I’ve had too much training in critical thinking and logic. Obviously, that can be a good thing. But when it comes to pursuing your dreams?

Screw logic. Screw the odds. Logic only exists because of mystery, because there are some things we CAN’T see coming or explain.  And odds were made to be turned.

Shatter the odds, upset the logic that says “you can’t”.

Tell yourself, “I can”, and then go do it.
