It’s a great time to get your book started, what with the dodgy weather and the start of a New Year. But writing a book, or if nothing else starting to get your thoughts and ideas down on paper can be exceptionally difficult – there are so many things out there to distract you from the task in hand.
If you are planning on writing a book this year, and you need a little help motivating yourself to get started, take a glance at our top 5 inspiring reasons for writing a book, as listed underneath.
Take after opportunities to visit new places and meet new people.
Writing your book will most likely give you the opportunity to visit a new place, travel to new countries and even (if you’re fortunate) to new countries. All exceptionally exciting! Whilst traveling can give you the opportunity to visit new places, it can also introduce you to people that you’d never normally interact with.
Furthermore, by holding book launches, book signings and book readings, you’ll get an opportunity to meet individuals from your local community that you may never have interacted wsith.
You might just become famous!
Alright, so it is insanely hard to become an international celebrity, but by writing various books and working hard on the marketing and advertising of these books, it is conceivable to become something of a local celeb.
Keep in mind to share your encounters with as many people as conceivable, either through local talks and readings or through interviews for the local press.
Work with gatherings of people who are interested in writing and learn to motivate them too. All of this won’t just make you feel good for giving something back to the community, it will also boost your personal profile.
Make yourself, your friends and your family proud.
Writing a book is an awesome achievement and one that should be celebrated. But once the party is over, once you’ve had that last round of drinks in celebration, keep hold of how enormously proud you feel of yourself, and realize that those around you who adore you also feel extremely proud of your achievement.
Become an expert in your field.
Interested in writing a true to life piece? Check whether you can find a title that ties in pleasantly with your career path. By demonstrating to clients and potential customers that you have expert information in a particular area (solidified by the fact that you have distributed a book on the subject), you can feel justified in increasing your costs and in raving about that one of a kind selling point you have over others who work within the same industry.
Utilise your creative muscles.
Creativity is of paramount importance to all book writing. And creativity is one area of life that tends to get lost as you grow up and find that the practicalities of “normal” day-to-day life take up too quite a bit of your time.
But by writing a book you will find that you have the opportunity to claw back some of that creativity that is usually drained away through day-to-day life.
