Maybe the best way I can help you write a book is to give you permission to write a book. You see in the arts, somehow we’ve gotten this notion that we need approval or some sort of encouragement to do the things that we want to do. And we see online that so many people are doing so much right now with music and spoken word and filmmaking with the YouTube phenomenon. It’s amazing. And yes, with book writing. But still there are many of us who think in the back of our mind that we need some sort of thumbs up. And often this takes the form of encouragement, often in childhood a teacher will say, Hey, you’ve got a skill there. You should develop it. I look forward to what you do, et cetera, et cetera, or approval from our current associates, family members, friends, spouses, and even children.
But you don’t need any of that. If you have a desire or an urge or need, I need to write a book that’s permission right there. That’s what you need. You’ve got something inside of you that wants to get out. That’s wonderful. I mean, that’s living, that’s you living as a human being, you have this helpful and positive urge to express yourself. And again, I’m telling you, that’s all the permission that you need in this world. You don’t even need it from me. So maybe I’m being encouraging. All you need to do is get started. And if you have constraints in your life, perhaps some people who are not approving, you don’t even have to worry about that because I do have a method where you can begin writing your book in just five minutes a day.
It is very simple. You do not need a special room or even work area to do it. You can do it on the fly. You can do it in the car. You can do it while you’re walking. You can do it at work, maybe on a lunch break. You know, you don’t want to steal from your employer, but you can squeeze in time breaks that are allowed during the day. You can do it when you have the time available.
And again, you don’t need permission. You do need that urge, that desire and part of desire mean means the willingness to follow through. I do have a method that teaches you not just five minutes a day, but how to plan it before you even start so that it ensures that you’ll get to the finish line. That has been a big thing for me, maybe not for every writer, but you know, whenever I was sort of fighting my way through the forest, trying to write a book, it didn’t work because you get lost.
You don’t know where you’re going or why you’re doing it. But a big part of our method is planning and knowing what you’re going to do and say, before you say it, and then those five minutes sections are super easy, super fun. And the doing of the thing that you’re giving yourself permission to do is self-reinforcing. Once you start doing a couple of these sections and get them under your belt, so to speak and they start piling up and accumulating, you’re going to get excited and you’re going to feel freer and more creative and really more excited about doing something that you’ve given yourself permission to do.
You already own the technology to do what I am describing. And I hope my tips and techniques make it easy for you so you get that smooth experience to the point where in a very short period of time, five minutes at a time, you’re going to have a finished book in your hands.
And then the people in your life who had something to say may not have anything to say, well, they may say something weird like, Oh, I knew you could always do it, which is completely bizarre if they had previously discouraged you, but that’s their problem.
One of the things about giving yourself permission to write a book is you stop thinking about those people and those voices. Sometimes they are alive voices, and sometimes they are remembered, which is a not-so-wonderful legacy, even though a lot of times you will come to realize that it was unintentional.
So we’re going to put all that out of our minds. We’re going to say, Hey, I have this urge, this desire, this welling feeling in myself, that I want to express something in words, in book format. And I’m going to use this method, this five minute method, which is fun and really frees up your creativity. You’re going to enjoy it. And you’re going to have a finished book when you’re done – all because you gave yourself permission to do what you really want to do.
