If you have a burning desire to some day hold a published book in your hands, you may be asking this question.
In that case, I’m about to get all Yoda on you.
Simply said, “To be, you must do.”
A large part of becoming better at anything is to do it more.
Notice how I’m avoiding using the word “practice”? Nobody likes to practice. But that doesn’t make it any less true that the more you practice, the better you get.
The process of writing teaches you, through direct experience, how to write.
Because I want your book in the world, in today’s video I’m sharing three success habits that will help you become a better writer.
(Spoiler Alert: They may have something to do with helping you get better at…practicing!)
In this video you’ll learn:
