WANT TO WRITE A BOOK? WHAT ARE YOU AFRAID OF?
by Sherrie Clark
Most of us want to write a book, but in actuality, very few do. So why don’t more people do it?
Sometimes the answer is simple and can be summed up into one major cause. Sometimes it’s a combination of several reasons. The cause could be justifiable, or it could be a bit more complex where the inhibitors go deeper with fear as the root. Regardless, chances are that the reason or reasons, fear or fears that you may be experiencing are probably shared by others, including professional writers. So let’s address what could be preventing you from writing your book because once you determine your reason, you can confront it and win.
I think the top reasons why people don’t write their book are that they don’t know what to do, where to start, and find the process intimidating. Taking something from your head and turning it into pages for readers to turn may seem overwhelming, but take heart because those days are now gone. The AuthorShip can help you through every step of the process.
Maybe you’re afraid that you’ll disappoint people and that no one will like your book, but how will you know if you don’t write it? You may just have a best seller that no one’s had to privilege to read. Don’t discount your story or message.
Maybe you’re afraid you can’t write a book and that you’ll fail at the process. Although writing a book is a process, it’s a very doable one. When you have someone help you who know what they’re doing, the journey can be much easier, quicker, and the results more professional.
Maybe you don’t know what you can write about, but you just want to write a book. This is something that I can help you figure out so you can move forward with your dream. Maybe you’re putting it off because you’re afraid to start. If so, then defy that fear and start writing your book.
Maybe you feel that you don’t have the time to write a book. Time may be a real issue with which you have to contend, but there are ways to push through the time problem.
The bottom line is, you don’t have to be paralyzed anymore. You can write that book, and it’s easier than you may think.
Whatever you’re reason or fear for not writing a book, discover it, define it, overcome it, and get ‘er done!
