We all have a story—many actually—which define and influence, sometimes greatly, how we perceive things and choose to live our lives. Learning about other people’s journeys lets us know that we’re not alone, whether it’s a blog, book, or biography we’re reading and/or engaging in a great conversation. In some ways, it even helps us to heal when healing is needed. It teaches us more compassion, and help us to grow.
Is it time for you to write a new story for yourself this season and coming year? Are there some decisions you need to make, or healthy changes you want to initiate? What about volunteer work? And/or perhaps putting pen to paper or fingers to keyboard to write your first or next book?
Every moment of your life you are changing, to a degree, the life of the whole world. Every man and woman has an ‘atmosphere’ which is affecting others. So silently and invisibly does this atmosphere work, we may forget at times it exists. Yet all the great forces of nature—light, heat, electricity, gravitation—are silent and invisible. In all nature, the wonders of the ‘seen’ are dwarfed to insignificance when compared to the majesty and glory of the ‘unseen.’
You might think you’d like to hire a ghostwriter to write your book for you, however, there’s wisdom in considering what your actual needs are first. This way, whether you decide to write your book yourself or have someone else do it for you, you’ll make a better decision overall. You will also have a better appreciation for the depth and breadth of the work you are investing in . . .
Let’s explore some tangible ways for you to take your book ideas and concepts and turn them into reality. There’s no real right or wrong way to create/write. However, if you are going to make it work, you need to make room in your life to write– just like you would a hobby, sport, or course of study. Very few writers can steal away for weeks or months at a time to create their masterpiece/bestseller. So what’s your Plan B?
