So this kind of writing has been around forever. People talkin’ ‘bout their feelings.
In the hands of a master it can be illuminating like Letters to a Young Poet by Rilke.
Second-best is that it becomes a cultural artifact and there’s been several memoirs that are interesting only because they describe a category of person or an era.
So in that case they have historical interest.
Now please understand me. Several of these kinds of writers have large audiences. Made up of people who like to think and talk about their own feelings. It’s an affinity group.
The main characteristic is that these people don’t spend any money. Yes some of these writers make a living out of being professional memoirists but they are just as rare as Stephen King and JK Rowling.
And if you have a compelling story to tell or just want to do it for personal satisfaction I highly encourage you to do it.
Our program on how to write a book in five minutes a day is an excellent easy and fun way to write this kind of material.
However if you want to be a writer who makes money you are going to have to write for a market.
Roughly the markets are finance, relationships and fitness. With our wonderful digital world you can get your ideas across in old-fashioned writing or video or audio. At the bottom of it all is the ability to communicate effectively in such a way that the customer sees a benefit for them.
That’s why we put together our 11 hour course on how to create million dollar products. That’s why we also have the course on emotional triggers. After all while people buy their own emotions.
In the case of the memoirist they are selling emotions and people are reading emotions but there’s no product involved except emotions.
Our approach is to understand that people respond through the mechanism of their emotions and to attach these to products. To services that serve a purpose.
We also have a secret email list that goes out every day dispensing sometimes unorthodox business intelligence.
It’s called Retired Writer’s Club and serves to keep you on track concentrating on the fundamental goals of business – namely, to acquire customers and sell them goods and services so that you make a profit.
And if you want to write perfectly crafted personal essays on your own time and for your own satisfaction and reflection you’ll be free to do so once you have the economic base to enjoy that kind of free time.
