If you want to be an authority, then being an author is a great start!
I met up with a friend last weekend for coffee. Andrew has had an incredible career, a huge amount of expertise, and some very specialised experiences. He is keen to write a book to capture everything he has learnt and done and to share his experiences with the world. We spent a couple of hours discussing why and how people write books.
Why you should write a book:
The third phase is the ‘Feedback’ phase – where you get other people’s opinions on your work. (This was the bit I really struggled with!) Having someone judge your writing is similar to someone judging one of your children! People telling you what is wrong with something you have created! Turns out that feedback and advice are incredibly helpful as it allows you to experience what it’s like to be on the otherside of your work. To be in service to your client or reader.
The fourth phase is the ‘Out there’ bit. The bit where you tell people you have written a book, where you market and promote yourself. This bit is equally as weird. This is when you realise that you are putting your thinking out into the world. You are no longer a secret! You are acknowledging to the world that you have a story or some experiences to share. How people respond to this says a lot about them. Some will be happy for you for what you are doing, some will be threatened. I remember a student telling me that the idea of being judged was stopping her from putting a book out there. You will mostly be judged by people who have never written a book!
I would love to know what your biggest block to writing is. What has stopped you or is stopping you from writing your first or next book?
