As I mentioned in my last post, I will be spending the next few weeks sharing tips and tricks for beginning authors. Today I’d like to focus on the final goal. Before you can determine the path you would like to take, you must decide what you want to do with your writing. Are you looking for a way to share some cute stories with family and friends? Or are you looking to be the next best selling author? There are many people out there who are convinced that they have the next hot book. The reality is, that there are tens of thousands of books published each year and only a handful will see a measure of success.
Whether you decide to create a small set of copies for friends and family or pursue the world of publishing, the next step is to sit your bottom in the chair and write.
In the next post for this series, I will discuss the differences in traditional and self publishing.
