Weekly Roundup: Writing Inspiration Edition
I had dinner with an old friend last night, and during our conversation he told me that he had published a book last year. I was floored. It was a fiction novel, and he wrote the entire book in about 9 months. We started talking about his writing and publishing experience, and I found out that he has published using a print on demand service, and is currently selling about 125 books a month on Amazon!
As we talked further, he told me that he has hired a narrator who is currently recording an audiobook version of his novel, and he has even been approached by a producer who is considering purchasing the rights to the book to make a movie. Needless to say, I had to find out more!
We talked for a few hours about the entire process, and before the night was over I was completely inspired to go out and get published myself.
I’ve had dreams of being published before, non-fiction rather than fiction, but I have never felt I had the motivation to actually do it. Rekindling an old friendship and knowing someone who is very similar to me has gone through the process successfully, was all the motivation I needed to start typing words into my new non-fiction book.
So here is to keeping up the progress, and hopefully I can report back within the next year that I have published my first book!
Here is what went on at Money for College Project as well as with my Yakezie friends. Enjoy!
