I’m going to give it to you straight–you are out of excuses for not writing and publishing your own book. Let me see if I can talk you out of relying on your two favorite reasons it hasn’t happened yet:
Reason #1, you don’t have time. You can find more time. I know you don’t think it’s that simple, but it can be. You can write a book in 15 minutes a day. Or one month. Cut out evening TV or wake up an hour earlier. Write on your lunch break. Get the words out of your head and onto paper or screen.
Reason #2, you don’t have money to invest in it. If money is the biggest issues holding you back, you can check out books on grammar, publishing, and marketing from your library and write the very best book you can on your own. You can convert your Word document into a PDF, sell it on your website, and start making money immediately. You can invest what you make back into your book and hire an editor, formatter, and cover designer to get it ready for e-publishing formats like the Kindle. Then take those profits and publish it in paperback using CreateSpace or a print-on-demand service. Use those profits to publish your second book.
It has never been easier. The only thing stopping you right now is yourself.
Ignore the small voice in your head that’s supplying all the excuses. Make 2014 the year you write a book. Or even two.
