Don’t Leave Me NAKED
I pulled out a piece of paper and I heard a voice speak through the 8×11 sheet of paper that I gently placed on the table.
“Don’t Leave Me NAKED, I like to be dressed up with consonants and vowels, stories that make people laugh, indentions and paragraphs. All of my relatives have made it into the books of bestselling authors. My life is in your hands. Please use the word NAKED so I won’t end up NAKED and explain the process of going from a blank piece of paper to have me in stores all over the world.”
As crazy as it sounds I listened because it could have been the voice from you waiting for these words to make your dreams come true.
The N is for Nothing.
If you have never written a book before you are at ground zero. If you have written a book before you are back in the starting blocks getting ready to give the world book number 2. Think about what you want to write about and how you want it to look. Before you take off writing spend time in your mind so that when you go there will be flow. I look forward to seeing you on the Bestsellers list. You have nothing lose.
The A is for Action.
The K is for Keep.
Everyone has a destiny for when their name will be called into the lights. Too many people give up just before they were to receive the call that would change their life forever. Keep going. Michael Jackson sang it best, “Don’t Stop Until You Get Enough.” Keep things fresh. Learn new ways to tell the same stories. Keep alert. Match your writing with the trends that are happening now.
The E is for Evaluate.
Have the courage to ask someone close to you or one who professionally edits or reviews books to give you feedback on your work. One idea that someone gives you can make the difference in how your book comes to life. Constructive criticism can give you a boost in the write direction. Learn from what the experts have to say. Look for ways to improve and become the next writing guru.
The D is for Deliver.
Now is the time to put a book up or shut up. In the same 30 minutes it takes for Dominoes to deliver a pizza you could have written a book. How can you produce a book so fast? Start with articles, reports and stories that you have already written. Add a book cover, turn it into a PDF and sell it as an ebook. Two things you need to be able to sell an ebook are a way to collect the money and a way to send your downloaded file to the consumer. E-Junkie is a great service that charges you up to $5 per month that allows you to sell up to 10 downloadable products. E-Junkie works well with Pay Pal to help you sell downloads and collect money during transactions.
When you start with Nothing and take Action your dream will Keep going and when properly Evaluated it will Deliver great results so no piece of paper will ever again have to say, “Don’t Leave Me NAKED”
