Get steps ahead of less-organised or disciplined writers with this comprehensive 340-page compendium determining the difference between writing any novel and a great novel.
Everything we do and feel is as a result of our thoughts.
Our mindset affects every area of our lives and often this means we are being governed by our fears. Fear of the unknown, fear of failure, fear of rejection. For many of us, the only way we would actually write a book is if someone could guarantee its success.
What this means is that you could be holding yourself back from doing something that you desire. But with a little coaching you can develop the mindset of an author and turn your dream into reality.
People often have so many ideas for stories that they simply don’t know where to start and which book to write. They may even start the first few pages, only to discard them because the confusion is too great. Despite dozens of ideas, they become paralysed before they have even really begun. Another aspect of this is a lack of confidence. If you have confidence in your abilities, you will be less likely to feel overwhelmed by the task ahead.
It’s a very simple equation – more confidence equals less overwhelm. By following a simple process, you will find it easier to gain clarity and the confidence to be able to formulate a compelling story.
People may know what they want to write about and they can see their characters in their mind, but they simply don’t have a plan of how to write a novel. Like most things in life, if we don’t have a plan or a path to follow, most of us will fail.
By having a focused, structured approach to writing, and by following a simple plan, you will find it much easier to begin, enrich and complete your novel.
