What inspires you to write?
I am inspired to write because words are so powerful and they deserve to be paid a great deal of respect. There is power in using words as a form of communication.
I’m so inspired to write compelling and informative content to inspire the reader to take action: pursue a dream, learn something new, or start a business.
Tell us about your writing process.
The old me hated to outline because I would over think it and often break the organic process (perhaps some of you think the same).
The old me just wanted to jump write in and write something great. I feared that if I bothered outlining, I’d start to hate the material and not finish the process.
However, when I became a ghostwriter and needed to utilize a system that would allow me to turn out good material fast, I had to outline in order to do so; trust me, it made the writing process so much easier.
So easy that I’ve written two eBooks that discuss my thick paragraph process that allows me to easily write books.
The reason why an outline is so important is because you need something to get back on point when you get stuck, and trust me, you will get stuck. It is at this point where you might be tempted to give up.
Don’t give up; outline.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
I’m not currently writing fiction, but I loooooove talking to myself.
What advice would you give other writers?
Learn all the rules of writing, and then break every one of them if it makes since to do so because you have to figure a way to stand out in a crowded and competitive field.
Market before your eBooks or books.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I went the self-publishing route, which was an easy choice to make.
It’s not easy wearing so many self-publishing hats, but there are other perks like getting your books out quick and fast, keeping more of your royalties and the list goes on.
My advice to new authors is try self-publishing.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
Traditional publishing is on its death bed. Ouch, I know that hurts for some to hear, but just like anything else, it can spring back or it can continue to die.
