How long as an itch plagued you – that urge to write a book?
“I’m going to write my novel someday,” you’ve chanted to yourself, not once or twice.
But this “someday” seems to have no actual date. It has already begun to look like no day at all.
What keeps you from writing the book that wants to be written?
Like most wannabees – yes, those who talk about being a writer, reading blogs about it, going to writing conferences, even dressing like one, but have written no book. Usually, the first obstacle is:- You don’t know where to start. Sure, you want to tell a story, but you don’t know what story to tell.
There are occasions you’re lucky: an idea comes to your head, you write, but your mind is blank somewhere along the way. The next sentence, the next paragraph, you could not figure it out. Eventually, you gave up – piling up this minor piece that you just wrote on the shelf of unfinished works.
Somehow, you completed one. How exciting!! But the usual doubtful questions crept in as you considered it.
What makes me think this will work? I’ve published nothing before, let alone a book.
How am I sure that what I wrote is good enough?
What if I post it and nobody likes it?
Familiar voices, right?
Listening to it – as is your usual move, you gave up and stacked it this time, in a shelf of unpublished works. And the cycle repeats.
The fact is, a book is tough to write. You should look with suspicion at anyone who claims otherwise. He never wrote a book before or wrote a bad one.
But the excellent news is: it is not really beyond your control that which is hard. Since people – who itched the same way and shared the same anxiety, wrote a novel, you can do that too. “Do not think… what is hard for you to master,” as Marcus Aurelius says, “is humanly impossible; and if it is humanly possible, consider it to be within your reach.”
With only a few steps – steps proved by thousands of best-selling and outstanding authors – the likes of Stephen King, J. K. Rowling, Jerry B. Jenkins, Robert Greene, Ryan Holiday, and so on, you too can get there.
This is why the book Unpublished is being published – it’s released only for you.
