The Sea Change of Self-Publishing - Writing for Kindle

Do the words "self-publishing" invoke fear in you? Do you think you must go to a large publishing house or you won't be taken seriously? Are you afraid to take the leap?

 

When you read about the buzz going on at the Romance Writers of America's national conference, I believe your fear could turn to downright giddiness. For the first time ever, editors and agents were wooing authors. The self-pub side of the BALLroom was jammed and buzzing with excitement. Romance is hot in the digital market.

 

Here's the rub: not many are making a ton of money with self-publishing--yet. There is still a bit of a steep learning curve to learning all about the finer aspects of formatting, uploading, and then the dreaded self-marketing. Can one person truly do it all?

 

Here are my thoughts on self-publishing: You can get the darn book written, published, and marketed much faster than waiting on somebody else to notice you and your work. You may find success with it, you may not, but you'll never find out unless you take the first step. Fear has kept many a fine writer in the closet. Feel the fear and do it anyway!

Authors sometimes need to be reminded to put down that pen, get away from the computer, and just have some fun! Doing so may tap into a creative side of themselves they may not have known existed.

 

After enjoying a hobby totally unrelated to writing, I made a surprising discovery--tapping into a creative part of my brain unleashed a torrent of words that had been waiting to pour out.

 

Read the entire article for ideas and find a hobby, test out a creative spree yourself, and see if the words don't flow a little faster.
