I'm 2/3 of the way through with writing my next book 'Writing The Damn Book' and I stalled. Because I rode through the first two sections with ease...all about how to set up to write the book, and then writing the actual book, on consistence and fears and overcoming those obstacles that come up when a book is on the horizon.
I struggled a little bit when it came to the third section, all about different ways to publish your book and the things I know about self-publishing. It felt unsexy. It felt like 'just the facts ma'am'.
It's when I felt the slow down in creativity.
So I couldn't even start the 4th section...about sharing your work with the world aka marketing it. I had sections on funnels and landing pages and it feel to 'brain' oriented. Yes I can share tons and tons of knowledge here. But why did I stutter?
Because it's not how I naturally operate.
What are the energetics behind sharing your work with the world? That feels sexy.
So I had to question, what would feel really fun to share here?
And I realized that I do things differently. There are thousands of resources from way better marketing minds than me.
But no one is talking about love - about creating ways to share your message in a loving way, in a way that people gravitate to without all the hoopla. So I'm back in the swing of writing, understanding that this doesn't have to be the 'smart' book that proves I know what I'm talking about (which is totally a part of every author's journey you know...that proving stage).
I can relax and let the book unfold even in the sections that are more mental...
