5 Magic Words …



If you know that it is your destiny to write a book, then this word will be enough. You KNOW what it feels like to have purpose, so focus on it.

If you kinda sorta think you want to write a book, then you lack purpose and you need to remember why the label ‘author’ is one of the most prestigious designer labels you can wear.

Author = authority.

If it is your purpose to be seen as an authority in any field, you must become an author. If you do not, but your competitor does, then they are the authority.

It doesn’t matter if you’ve launched a stream of products. Seeing authors as authorities is hardwired into our language and our brains. The technology of writing has been around for a LONG time, and your market DOES hold authors in higher esteem. The person who launches the game changing book in your niche is the thought leader in your niche. They are the authority.


This whole post is about inspiration, but the secret about inspiration is that it doesn’t matter whether you have it or not. Never let a lack of inspiration hold you back from the next word …


  • Attach bum to chair.
  • Place fingers on keyboard.
  • Type.


  • Repeat the three bullet points above, until you have a book.


It takes such courage to be a writer. First, you must name yourself something other than ‘aspiring’. Pick a less passive title. Remove ‘I hope, one day’ from your vocabulary and start to speak into your purpose. Say ‘I plan to’ and ‘when I am’. Next, you must pour your soul onto paper. Then, you face the task of publication. Finally, there is the public … and the reviews. Wimps can’t be authors, but then neither can wimps be authorities. Put your shoulders back, sit up straight, and write your book.



The marketing system that I use to earn my own advances as a writer.

    Great post. Although I earn a living writing plays, I’ve always wanted to be a novelist. I’m working on a novel at the moment and I can feel self doubt beginning to set in so your post was most welcome. Thank you for inspiring me.

    Nice post.

    As long as it’s easier to make excuses than to take action those that do will always stand out.
