GET PUBLISHED NOW: Books Are Magical

Get Published Now with Beth Barany

Even in the age of blogging and tweeting, a book is still one of the most effective ways of diving into the thoughts and imagination of those who would inspire us.

Books still represent a significant symbol of one of our most important and overlook missions on Earth.

Our legacy.

Who has secretly (or not so secretly) harbored a dream of writing a book? (Raise your hand proud.)

That used to be me, too.

Most of you gave up on that dream because of fears that it takes too much time and effort -- or fears that your ideas aren't good enough -- or that writing a book is just too large an undertaking.

Here, you're going to discover that none of that is true.

I'm Beth Barany. And I'm ready to get started. Are you?

With just 15 minutes a day, and recognizing how you're an expert in something, you can get started on your writing today.

15 Minutes a Day...

... keeps the writing blues away. The most powerful 15 minutes of your life are the ones you spend doing what you’re here for, what you’re meant to do. I’m talking about your passion, your message, your way of touching the world.

Develop your daily writing habit as simply as you make your daily cup of coffee. In fact, make your coffee, then sit down to write for just 15 minutes. Surprise yourself by writing what's actually in your head. Talk to your audience as your fingers tap across the keyboard, or scribble across the page.

And, breathe. Read more here, for a dose of inspiration.

You Are an Expert... in Something

You may think your ideas aren't good enough, but actually you're the wrong person to make that judgment. If you just share your ideas with your target audience, (I'm assuming you are in business and have a target audience), then you will see how much value they put in your expertise.

Then write down what they say is valuable. Trust them.

"Inch by inch, life's a cinch." -- Anonymous

Rome wasn't built in a day, and all that. Why do you think writing a book is?

Regularly (a few times a week is good, daily is best), drop in on your book like you would a good friend. You'll be delighted and surprised to watch your book grow. Look back after three months and see the progress you've made. Celebrate after six months, or year, and hold a finished book in your hands.

If you need support, ask for it! And yes, I'm here to help, support, guide, and kick you in the derriere, if you need that, too. Metaphorically, of course.
