You’ve probably experienced negativity at some point in your life. Maybe you were a teenager and your parents told you that you weren’t going to be anything other than a failure. Maybe it was a teacher who told you to choose something easy because you’re not too bright. Maybe it’s friends who put you down and laughed at your dreams. I can feel you.
A writer is a DREAMER. A writer is a person who is taking action to make the world a better place by letting their voice be heard and felt in the written word. Anyone can be an author. No exerience is required to begin. All you need is to find your voice and your passion.
For as long as I can remember, I have been in love with writing. It took me years to write my first book. I didn’t know what to do. I didn’t have anyone to show me the ropes. I was scared or nervous or put up some internal blocks that prevented me from completing my book. I didn’t have encouragement from those around me at first.
Then I met my partner who understood my dream. And would go on to do her part to help me realize it. In those early days, just having one person believe in me, made the difference. It was like the silver lining behind the dark clouds. And it was beautiful.
I believe that you can achieve your dream and become a published author. Along with the belief, you also need the knowledge and guidance to help you move along the pathway to achieving the dream. This could be books you read, courses that you study, or a personal writing coach to work with you. However you choose to do it, it is never a good idea to go it alone. You will need someone to pick up the pieces when you fall apart.
You will get stuck. That’s a given but we have resources on this site to help you. Whether you need to learn the craft of writing, or get your book professionally edited, or have a book cover designed, or just get feedback on what you’re doing.<strong>We’re here to help you.</strong>
So enjoy the site and keep following your dream.
