Authors Personality

“Authors Personality”

Authors can relate to each other like no one else. We support each other through the writing of books, marketing, and publishing. Authors never punch the time clock. The day turns into night, while our imagination continues to flourish.

Break tradition.

  • Write about what you fear the most.
  • Do not write everyday. Let the story build in your mind.
  • Write about what you do not know. This will take more research, but you will expand your ideas.
  • Distractions are part of being an author. Learn to write, despite what is going on in your life. If you wait for the perfect moment to write your book, you will be waiting a long time.
  • Wherever you are writing, is the best place to be writing.
  • Authors need to read everyday. No exceptions.
  • Your readers are more important than your career. 
  • What a shame it would be if no one had an opportunity to read your book.
  • You do not have to move to New York, Maine, L.A., or Toronto to be a successful author.
  • Enjoy writing re-drafts. With each one, your book will increase in value.
  • Writing a book is easy. (At least, it is easy for you.) The challenge will come when you have to market that book.

Here are more things to consider.

  • Not everyone will like your book. However, there is a niche for every author.
  • Feedback can be tough, but it is necessary.
  • You are not wasting your time. Keep writing books, because when the world discovers your talent, you are going to be busy.
  • Your first book will take plenty of time to write. With each book, you will excel.
  • Professionals in the publishing industry will be the most honest about your book. Family and friends will be the most supportive.
  • If you are stumped when writing, pick up a book and read. (Or, walk around the block.)

You were born with a gift and a dream as been placed in your heart. Do not let a day go by without doing something as an author. Reading, writing, and marketing should be a part of your daily life.

Most importantly, never say, “My book is going to be on the best sellers list!” Instead, you should be saying, “I am the best seller of my book!”
