Self Development & Commitment

Self Development & Commitment

Comments: 1

While you are in a hurry to know how to make big money writing, I cannot skip this section. Every writer must have

the attributes listed below.

Self-Development:  While some people are naturally gifted, some people have to develop themselves by learning and practicing writing skills, and even when the writer feels he has reached a high point of satisfaction, he has to keep on improving. I am sure that many readers of this post will be at different stages of their writing development, but these words apply to everyone.

All good writers recognize the fact that they’re constantly  learning and evolving, and they aren’t ashamed to admit it. In fact, no matter how good you think you are, or how good  others think you are, it is advisable to put the ego aside and keep learning , and soon expertise will start rolling into perfection.

Commitment: To be a successful writer, you have to display commitment to the cause. That is, you have to want to write and complete whatever it is you started. It’s all too easy to write a single paragraph and give up. They key is to treat your writing as a business. I was making peanuts from writing until I started treating it as a business.

When you treat your writing as a business, you must have business hours (hours allocated to writing), you must have a budget for your business (No matter how small). This budget will go to advertising your book, designing professional book covers, editing, etc.  If you do not have any budget at all, don’t worry, you may still make sales, but the difference is too big between when you advertise and when you don’t. Think about it, how can people buy your product when they don’t know it even exists?

Thousands of writers start writing books they never finish. Please, because you have are reading this blog, DO NOT be part of the ‘Almost Authors’. Commit to the writing business and you will be happy to say “I am a published author”.  Writers who stay on the course and earn money do so because they don’t shirk hard work; they gain enormous satisfaction from submitting a piece that is the best work they can produce.

The road to the top can be long and hard, but don’t let that put you off, as there are many moments to enjoy along the way as well as many opportunities to make money from your craft as you learn. I am a testimony that writing pays off, so let that encourage you whenever you wish to give up. Simply email me at support@janejohn-nwankwo.com. Tell me you read this blog and would like my writing coaching, and I will offer any advice I may have on writing.

If your English writing is not so good, you may have to use an editor each time, so that your work is a little bit professional. I am not asking for an excellent work. As far as I am concerned, there is no perfect book. It doesn’t matter what you write, just pick a topic and do it. And when you’ve done it, do it again, but differently. Because without persistence, you won’t get anywhere, and if you can’t be bothered to spend time improving your art, you won’t succeed.
