I was listening to Gary Vaynerchuk (google him and get pumped), and he gave me an idea that I couldn’t stop thinking about. He basically said that you should document everything you do. That and put out as much product as you can. So if you write, or sing, or draw, the way to get to success is just produce, produce, produce.
That is why I’m going to put out six novels this year. Where I only released three last year.
But apart from that I am planning on documenting, my road to success or failure. I aim to become a full time author by dec 31st 2017. I believe I can get there, its just a matter of how much work I am willing to put out. But once a week I will blog, how I’m feeling, my thoughts, what I’m doing. Everything really.
Some weeks will be tough, but I aim to have 52 post at the end of this year. Maybe more.
I see it as a challenge, a fight. The thing that scares me the most is after these 52 weeks, I fall flat on my face, then the whole wide world will get to see it. Nothing like having an audience to view your failure.
But we as authors, don’t really get that luxury.
If you really want to produce your best work you have to bleed on the page. Allow your blood to be the pathway, to letting other people see your dreams. If they can’t see it after that, you are either not doing a good enough job or….your work is shit.
All the blog post and emails from authors moaning that they are two- three books in, and they haven’t made a cent. Maybe those two-three books were not up to par.
There is a saying that your first million words are shit.
That doesn’t mean you can’t publish till then. Just believe in yourself and keep your head to the grind stone. Be so busy that you pass success by, till then just keep working.
So onwards and upwards. Sorry this post is short, but I can’t really think of anything else to say.
Apart from, damn! This is going to be fun.
Until next time,
