Is there a book in you?
Is there a book in you? Have you ever thought of writing a short story or a children’s book or even a screen play? Have you dreamed of seeing your name as the author of a book?
I have a number of accomplished writers who call on me to help them with their writing. I’ve learned that as a member of the writing community, it’s important for writers to have access to friendly, frank feedback. It’s just part of growing as a writer. In this light, my participation in the Puerto Vallarta Writers Group, for example, has significantly contributed to expanding my experience.
Sometimes writers come to me for coaching. Sometimes fellow writers are seeking ghost writing support. Sometimes writers just want me to read their “stuff,” share a few comments and request feedback. There are many ways in which writers can support other writers.
Is there a book in you? Are you prepared to commit to writing?
Are you prepared to commit to writing 500 or 1000 words a day? Are you prepared to commit to working with a team of editors? No writer is ever truly an island. Even if you spend the next six months writing on your own for eight hours a day, you are likely to emerge seeking feedback on your work.
Whether you have an agent who represents you to publishers, a deadline set by your publisher to finish your next manuscript or a target as a self-publisher to finish a section for your editor, you, undoubtedly, benefit from everyone on your publishing team. A writer without a team will remain a writer and is likely to never become an author.
Is there a book in you? How will you know if you don’t put the question to the test?
