What inspires you to write?
The one thing that has inspired me to write is having the desire to inform people about new discoveries and methods of doing things that yield incredible results even though it was different from the traditional route. I am inspired while sitting in an office and observing all of the sounds of despair and discontent with their current jobs yet, most want to continue to do the same thing and complain. This is fascinating to me so I write about it. And my son inspires me to write. There is always something interesting that he does to make me want to capture the moment with words.
Tell us about your writing process.
My writing process… Well, I can sit in a crowded office space and pull out my notepad and write a whole chapter of something that I had been stuck on previously. I do not think I am a typical writer. My style is my own and I write when something comes over me to put it on paper in order to inform and somewhat entertain. This could happen in the early mornings or come to me while sleep and I jump up and go start writing. When I write I seem to be training or talking directly to someone. So I do love to write, only when it is necessary to inform or enlighten. And sometimes this comes in the form of poems instead of books.
What advice would you give other writers?
Just start writing your thoughts on paper. Get them out of your head. Don’t trust your great ideas and stories to memory, it will fail you time after time. If you get stuck, keep writing whatever comes to mind and it will take you back to where you want to go.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I was working with a personal results coach and we talked about my writings and it came up to write a book. And it seemed like the right thing to do to reach others with my message of how we are created to do great things and striving for excellence is our normal inclination and we should strive to get back to that level of motivation.
For publishing that took a bit longer because I wasn’t sure which direction to go. Try for a major publishing agent and suffer through that process or handle the whole process on my own. I opted to go with self publishing – full control first. I wanted to see what the finished product would look like. also I like to do all of the editing and formatting my self so I will know how it all works. Yet, I do plan to put together the query letter/package to submit to a major publisher agent soon.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
The future of book publishing is online and self publishing, at least the POD is attractive. Not to sock a lot of books (even if they are yours) is the best thing. There will always be room for major publishing deals because the internet can’t reach everybody but, online is growing super fast.
