COURSE STARTS 4TH DECEMBER, 2017
So you’re out there doing it, dancing to the tune of your own desires. Well, it’s about time. No one was ever going to give you permission and now that you’re here you wonder why you didn’t do it sooner.Well, today is the first day of the rest of your life and if you want to write a book then now is the time. Don’t wait for permission or a right time or till you have a story worthy of the national news. Your life is your story and your mind is your adventure. And someone out there wants to read what you’ve got to write.
Just like some of us have been out there doing it all that time wondering why everyone else isn’t out here with us, some of us have been writing about it and making a few dollars to fund our lifestyle and wondering why everyone isn’t doing it.
You see, we’ve got something that other people want. We’ve got a story to tell and if you’ve bought this book then you too are thinking about telling stories - whether it’s to fund your adventures, provide a bit of extra pocket money or to see your name in lights, it doesn’t matter. You’re reasons will most likely change anyway.
That’s the funny thing about the creative life. You don’t know where it’s going to take you. But one thing I’ve learnt is that wherever it takes you your life will be all the richer for the experience of having done it.
The question is, where to start. In some ways, with all this changing technology and level playing fields it can be almost more confusing than sending your precious ms off to a publisher and waiting for a form rejection to add to your ever growing pile.
But if it was that easy, why isn’t everyone doing it? Well, sometimes it feels like they are and that there will be no room for your paltry efforts. But there is and your efforts are just as worthy as the next person’s efforts. That’s the good thing about stories. Everyone has one to tell - all you have to do is find someone who wants to listen. Easy, huh?
