The beginning of anything always feels like you’re stepping over the edge.
Even as I write this now with all of the experience of the last few months, this feels like a more official beginning than any of the other prep work that I’ve done. Something about writing a blog solidifies this phase for the business. We are officially out of preparation time (for the most part) and onto the next part of the adventure, providing you with services and guides that you can trust.
We’ve started working on our first five guides and are excited to announce them shortly. We, of course, want to say that if you have any suggestions for topics or guides, please let us know. We have about ten years worth of topics lined up, but we would love to get the order right. So let us know what you need, and we’ll make it a priority! The last few months have been spent building this website. Figuring out colour schemes and branding, designing a bunch of logos and book covers and most importantly, outlining and drafting content for you. With the first draft of our first guide finished and undergoing edits, we thought it would be the perfect time to start letting you know what we have actually been up to. So without further ado, here is the list of our first five topics.
1. Writing Habits
2. The Blank Page
3. Time structure or scheduling
5. Point Of View
We’ve selected these topics because we believe that they cover the topics that writer’s get stuck on. These are all topics that are helpful to know before you start writing your book but may also be helpful for people who have already started the writing process but find themselves getting stuck. Our priority is to unstick you so you can start feeling like the writer we know you are. Your story should be told, and to do that, we need to make sure we get the first steps smoothed out so you can start doing your best work.
We hope you like the topic list. Some things that you can expect in the guides are practical tools to warm up your writing muscles. Information on the pros and cons of different writing methods and techniques. Tips for experimentation and finding your own perfect method and ways to combat some of the different fears or issues that show up along the writing journey.
Okay, well, I’m off to finish up some of the other stuff I’ve been working on… You know, finishing the guides so you can actually read them. I’ve got a lot to tell you about, but that will have to wait until another time.
As always, I cannot wait to see you on the bookshelf!
