Great advice from new writers

We seasoned writers can give you all of the advice in the world and you may say ‘yeah. yeah’ that sounds reasonable but…

The technology and understanding of how to edit, format and upload. I found the writing relatively easy and enjoyed it as it’s a subject that I am passionate about.

What did you learn from writing your book?

It helped me to crystalize my thoughts and the packages that I offer. Also, I learned that I am really passionate about spreading the development opportunities that are in this book. I also learned that it can be fun and interesting and that I can publish a book!!

What advice do you have for other writers?

Find something that you are passionate about, get your structure and plan right from the start and then just go for it. Find some positive support and technological support and believe in your abilities. It’s a very good way to find your inner confidence and that is as important as anything! Also plan time to do it and know that when  you’ve got your structure, it doesn’t take as long as you think.
