A few days ago I launched my new program, "Words into Cash: Write and Sell Your Ebook in Just 8 Hours".
Then the feedback poured in.
Without any doubt, this program has touched a nerve. Writers want to write books, but fear that they can't do it. This program has shown them that they can -- it excites them, and I'm so pleased about that. That's what I set out to do, and there's nothing more satisfying.
Writing a book can seem intimidating, if you think about it as a "book." These days however, a book can be many things. The most important thing to be aware of is that it can be SHORT. You don't need an outline or anything complex to get started writing.
In this blog post, Q & A with Seth Godin about writing best-selling Poke the Box, consummate marketer and writer Seth Godin says:
"SG: Believe, Debbie. Believe. Do you have an outline when you argue with a friend or teach a new employee? The point of this manifesto is to pester, cajole, remind, argue, inspire and push people to think differently about instigation. I can’t see what the reader is doing while reading, so I bob and weave and wheedle, hoping to get under her skin."
You don't need an outline to write a book, although it certainly helps.
In "Words into Cash", I give you a simple way to create an outline. It's how I do it -- I just use index cards. The outline creates itself. The book writes itself (almost, anyway.) All I need to do is sit down at my computer.
So if you'd love to write a book, and fear you can't, be aware that in 2011, the Kindle platform has changed everything about writing books. It's the dawn of a wonderful new epublishing age, in which you can write, and sell... You're a creative genius, and don't you forget it! :-)
