Why Aren't You Writing?

Updated: Jan 28

If I made a dollar for every time someone told me, "I want to write a book, but...", I'd be in a higher tax bracket. Everyone's wrap-around story is different but there are underlying themes I hear in every story. I'd like to take a minute to address them here. Do any of these sound familiar? *ahem*

Reason #1 that you aren't currently writing that book you've always dreamed of writing: Writing Myths.

You've heard horror stories about what it takes to write a book:

  • You have to do it in isolation, ALONE - to get a book written you must hide away in a tiny, windowless room with no distractions, no people, no TV, no fun, no LIFE until the book is done.

  • Writer's Block will ruin you - once the words and ideas stop, it'll take a herculean amount of effort to work through it, if you can at all.

  • There are no new ideas - it's all been written before; you're going to have to work HARD to come up with a new idea
