What to Write About... Seeking Your Ideas/Input
Monday, May 20, 2013
Interesting as I was looking at the goals I set for myself when we rolled into 2013 and one of those goals was to explore the possibility of writing more - beyond my blogs.
Since I have put that thought out, sure as the law of attraction works with our thoughts, I have been receiving (or perhaps noticing) more emails or ads relevant to this topic. I have signed up for a free phone call with one of the authors who I had the priviledge to meet and have come speak to one of our chapter meetings through my association (Peggy McColl). She lives right near me and is living a successful life that I dream of living one day. She wrote this on her add "But after self publishing 4 books and selling 5 books to major publishing houses AND becoming an international best selling author and a New York Times Best Selling author (not to mention the phenomenally successful business I've built ...) I'm ready to show YOU too."
I also received some information from Balboa press (and received a phone call from them) - and they are linked to Hay House Publishing - which is my dream - to become a Hay House published author. Louise Hay has been a great part of my inspiration and healing, as well as many of the other authors from Hay House.
Now the issue is - what to write about? In reading some of the preliminary info I have received it speaks to finding your niche and what you're passionate about. There is no doubt in my mind that my book would be a self-help type or inspirational one. I thrive on being able to share my experiences to help others through similar challenges. But as they state - it has to be something new that's not out there - so how do I figure that out?
Well I have read many great books in the self-help category and to me they are all wonderful because the authors give THEIR spin or view on a particular topic - and that's what I need to figure out.
I also feel a great passion of course with the combination of mind/body/spirit work - the finding of the 'formula' that will be the code that works for you and allow you to live a full and balanced life.
I wanted to put this out to my SP friends - for those who follow my blogs - or others... what do you think would be good to write about that's not out there? While this project is not meant to be one to bring me fame or fortune (although that would be nice) - I want it to be meaningful and I do want it to go beyond just publishing but actually getting it out there.
So I guess in the writing process - I'm at the beginning and brainstorming and seeking your input... Your feedback is greatly appreciated!
