It's amazing how long it took me to start my first ebook I didn't think of myself as an author.
I knew that information was creating a fortune for others, but who was I to think I could write a book?
I knew all the reasons to do it. The task just seemed so daunting.
I started out writing and submitting articles. It didn't seem as hard, although sometimes the words came slow.
The old story of use it or lose it is so true. Once I started getting some positive feedback, I could feel a shift in my thinking.
The more I wrote the easier it got. As my articles began to circulate the feedback began to increase.
Maybe I am a writer!
Web sites and newsletters starting picking up my articles and some ezines were publishing everything I submitted.
I started writing more articles, and they started becoming easier to write. It was an ever increasing cycle.
The ideas started coming faster. It got to the point I always had more ideas in my mind than I had time to write.
Before I knew it I had over 60 articles and my output was getting faster.
I began to realize that with a little editing to make the articles flow together, I could begin writing books.
I now had my own built in database. Now the ideas for articles are becoming ideas for books. I have tons of articles to expand into chapters and I can link them together into a quality book.
So the next time you sit down to write an article, realize you're really writing a mini book.
Once you start getting in the habit of writing articles, realize you are writing a book, one article at a time.
If this dummy can do it, I know you can!!
