Action Is A Scary Six Letter Word!
Starting a new journey can be scary, sometimes even a paralyzing kind of scary. Writing children’s books can bring this fear up constantly. Will people love the concept? Will the story resonate? Is it the best idea I have?
Don’t get me wrong, I love what I do, but throughout each book I hit bumps in the road that cause me to freeze. (This is a big part of why I always have multiple projects going on.) Every time I start a new book I have that moment where I doubt my choice.
Truth be told, I don’t think I am some amazing or special author, but I am an author that has learned one key element of succeeding. The key to my success is ACTION!
I am constantly taking action to keep myself, and my books, moving forward. It is easy to come up with excuses to not work on your book, but it is hard to find a way to choose to work on your book when you are stuck, or even just having a moment of doubt!
As an author, perfection is the enemy. We can pick apart our own work until we are blue in the face, but that won’t put it in the hands of readers. Don't go for perfection, just aim for constant progress. If you are constantly making progress, then you will succeed.
Now, let me throw out this tid bit of information. You will find increased speed in achieving success if you make wise choices with your actions. SOme things are not relevant or important, but are great for wasting time. Try to differentiate between effective actions and passive actions!
All the courses we teach take the fluff (a.k.a. wasted time) out of the process and take you straight to important parts of getting your book done right and launched properly. Will it be perfect? No. Will it be easy? Probably not. BUT, the hope is that our courses and our free worksheets, cheat sheets and guides will cut the fat and get you to the top of the "Best Sellers" list before you know it!
