How To Overcome Challenges And Get A Book Deal

How To Overcome Challenges And Get A Book Deal

When we're growing up, books are just wonderful stories. We fall in love with them, we live inside of them, and we wonder what kind of genius it takes to create such brilliant worlds full of incredible words.

But when we grow up we realize how hard it is to actually write a book. Because of our own journeys as writers, we see how much blood, sweat, and tears each novel truly represents.

The more I've learned about publishing on my own writing journey, the more I've wanted to know about the heartache and drafts behind all of my favorite stories. I want this because each time I learn about another author's journey to achieving their dreams, I feel inspired to keep working towards my own.

For that reason I'm starting an interview series on this blog so we can all be inspired and learn about the awesome stories behind awesome stories.

How To Make 2018 Your Best Writing Year In 5 Easy Steps

We made it.

We got through the dumpster fire that was 2016 and finally reached 2017.

With each new year comes new year resolutions, but if you’re like me, most years your resolutions don’t last more than 30 days.

At the start of 2016 I wanted what most people want: to exercise, eat healthier, sleep more. You know, the usual things. 

But more than anything, I wanted to become a published author.

So instead of making a scattered list of how to improve my entire life, I decided to just focus on writing.

I would read at least one published book a month. I would write almost every single day. I would connect with other writers who were on a similar journey.

I vowed to do everything I could to become a better writer and a published author. Now that a year has passed, I can see the results of those writing resolutions.
