What are the Good Habits of a Successful Writer?
That way our good habits of today become our success of tomorrow.
This may sound like a bunch of pie in the sky hooey but actually its what I’ve learned from NLP. Most of what we do as humans are conditioned actions. Only a small part of what we do is actually conscious.
Our conscious mind’s job is to choose, to decide. “I want this. I don’t want that.”
Today if you choose to be a successful author, you also get to choose what actions to take. The unconscious parts of us knows what to do next.
Recently I chose to blog more again. I want my name and my brand out there, for both my business as a successful writing coach and consultant, and as a fantasy author. I decided that I wanted to build my national presence as an expert. In that way I can have more of an impact and help even more people get what they want: successful author careers.
And I decided on the action: blogging and using other social media tools to bolster the conversation. These are things I like to do so I can sustain the action over the long term.
I also knew I couldn’t do it all myself. To get bigger, bolder, broader with my message, I needed a team, team mates. I needed other writers who wanted visibility too. So, I put a request out on Facebook and Twitter and enrolled my fellow authors. I have authors posting on Mondays for Q&A Indie Fantasy Authors, and on Tuesdays Twitter Tips for Fictions Authors by Fiction Authors. Thank you!
I have the blog. Will travel.
I’ve come to realize that it takes a team to make my dream work and so have taken action on that and reached out to peeps!
What actions can you take today that build toward your success tomorrow?
- Do you need to write more regularly, more often?
- Do you want to get a handle on this social media marketing stuff?
- Do you need to step up your writing quality and get feedback from a professional coach or from a critique group of your peers?
What action will to take today? Declare it here now. Commit to it here now, yes, today. And then take action! Yeah!
