If you’re ready to Pitch, Polish & Publish Your Magical Book,
you’re in the right place.
When I began writing my first book I made some costly mistakes, ones that could have been avoided if I had been informed and inspired.
Although I listened to a variety of podcasts and attended more paid webinars than I care to admit, I still felt lost.
I continued to sign up for writing retreats while wracking up costly bills for editing because I had lost faith in my own gift. I thought I needed to be involved in every aspect of the writing community in order to succeed.
What I should have been doing is writing my book and practicing building confidence in my craft.
I had little faith in myself because I believed I had to invest in all of these programs, podcasts, and writing groups that gave very little but charged a small fortune.
Here’s What I’ve Learned:
Over time you develop a sacred and magical practice with yourself and your words. You begin to evolve as a writer and that’s exciting! I love writing and for me it’s extension of my being, but it’s even better when you can share your words and get feedback from a coven of supportive and reciprocal writers.
Writing is a way to express what I can’t necessarily say out loud.It gives me the time and space to articulate my thoughts in a way that I just can’t seem to do in a large group of people. I hate being interrupted, and often, I will shut down and just stop speaking at events. I felt unheard for a large portion of my life, and writing allowed me to finally feel heard, uninterrupted, uninhibited by social cues or faux pas.
I’ve also learned that you don’t have to have a wildly successful platform, be crazy connected or have titles behind your name to get published. While all of those things help, I believe it’s possible to publish your work with authenticity, integrity and maybe, just maybe – a little bit of magic!
