It's time to write your book
"Why do you read books?"
Here's some of the answers I often get back.
- learn something new
- expand knowledge and better yourself
- understand others more deeply
- feel an affinity with the world and others
(*I'd love to know your answers, 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5..)
Now, I actually think these are all valid reasons to write a book, as well.
Especially right now, when most of us are desperate to have something (anything) to look forward to before another year ends.
Many of us are ready to shed our skins and transform as something new.
In a recent interview with Thriving in the Fight author Denise Collazo, she mentioned that one of the reasons she wrote her book was to "become better than she was before".
I really love this because, sure there are a lot of surface-level reasons why you write a non-fiction book: for example, credibility, authority or positioning.
But one intangible value of a book is how it transforms you as a person, how it impacts your overall life, AND how it brings joy, knowledge, depth and a sense of worth for other people, too.
So take this as a sign to get started, and watch my interview with Denise, you'll love what she has to offer.
