031: How to Write a Book When You’re Busy

5/26/2016
More
Writing a book doesn't have to be hard. We can get really intimidated when we think about word counts, especially when that word count is 50,000, the best practices length for a book. In this episode, we deconstruct word count to show how you can write a 50,000 word book in 30 or 60 days, 3 or 6 months, or in one year. When I wrote my book, I kept the goal of 50,000 words in mind, thought I knew I would come in shorter. My manuscript ended up being 72,000 words and after I finally edited...

029: 3 Ways to Figure Out Your Message

4/21/2016
More
Deciding how to write your book and what that book will be about are perhaps the toughest tasks for writers working on their first book. When I was deciding on what I wanted to write my first book about, I went through a few different partial drafts before finding my voice and my audience. I chose the topic of writing and business because I saw it as a major pain point for a lot of writers, but it wasn’t a pain point of mine. I enjoy working on both sides of the craft. Having founded a...

028: Do Writers Need to Write Every Day?

4/7/2016
More
The top question that many writers ask is how often should they write? I recommend daily because I’m a firm believer in building lasting habits. Using weight loss as an example, if you were to ask your nutritionist, personal trainer or dietitian how long you should eat a healthy and balanced diet, you’d probably get a funny look. Healthy is something you become, not something you strive towards and then discontinue when you hit a goal. The same is true of writing—it's your lifestyle. So...

027: Priming the Pump with Words

3/30/2016
More
When I committed to writing again, journaling was an instrumental part of that process. If your decision to write is the seed, journaling is the water to nurture and grow that seed. Every day you write in your journal, you’re deepening your roots. In the days before indoor plumbing, water needed to be pumped in from a well. You would need to stand at the well, grab the handle, and then pump it up and down repeatedly until the water began to spew out from the nozzle into a bucket. Once the...

026: How Do You Talk to Yourself?

3/23/2016
More
When I took the first step I took when I decided to return to writing was to change my beliefs about myself as a writer and what my relationship to the craft was going to be. I achieved this by writing several affirmations that I would read throughout my day starting first thing in the morning. It doesn’t matter how talented a writer you are, something within — an unrelenting little voice — will tell you that you are not; that you are unworthy, untalented and unqualified to write. Some...
