‘I Want to Write a Book …then Be Published!’

Writing a book may seem extremely daunting …and perhaps even impossible to you, as I felt when I started out writing (like flying to the moon); but if you believe you have some writing talent just DO IT. As with eating an elephant (“hephelump”), break it into “small chunks”. No only joking! Please treat all animals with great care. My point simply:
The key is taking that FIRST STEP in writing that first sentence…then one just gets involved in your “work of art”, as writing becomes a daily habit. One word
simply flows into the next…then one chapter just leads on to the next one.

As the ancient Chinese proverb said so wisely…
“The journey of a thousand miles begins with …
a broken fan belt and a leaky tire.”

“You will do foolish things, but do them with enthusiasm.”
– Colette

“Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Together, one mind at a time, let’s see how many people we can impact, empower, uplift, encourage … and perhaps even inspire to reach their fullest potentials.”

“Hold fast to dreams

Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly.
Hold fast to dreams
For when dreams go
Life is a barren field
Frozen with snow. ”
– Langston Hughes

No matter! Although it’s a very brief look at this vast subject, I hope these pointers may be helpful to aspiring* or perhaps other “non-techno” authors, like ‘yours truly’.

* What’s the definition of an aspiring author?
A waiter!

(to roars of laughter from family and friends)

Me write a book! What!!! A “pipedream” or perhaps a possibility?
