If you are intent on writing a book then you really need to set your mind to go all the way. This means setting the goal to ensure that your book is a best seller. Sometimes authors set this goal for themselves without even realizing what this means.
A best selling book is one that has made it to the most noted best sellers list of books. These lists are usually compiled based on a certain criteria. Some of the lists are often broken down into categories. So a successful author could end up being a best seller in fiction, or a best seller in children’s books.
If you are really enthusiastic about being a book writer then there is no reason why you should not set your expectations of becoming a best seller. Do keep in mind that even if you don’t reach this goal any time soon you can still do very well financially if you have produced a good book.
To achieve your goal take it a step at a time.
Learn about the Industry
While you may have the natural talent to write, you may not have the skills as yet to become a published author. It is a business, and as such you need to know what the business is all about.
Almost every author has some stumbling blocks along the way like writer’s block for example. If you truly have a desire to be an author then you will work through this.
It is not likely you are going to get the first publisher to accept your book the first time you send it to them. If you are refused then don’t let this defeat you. Take any feedback you can get and turn this into a positive experience.
It may be that your first book doesn’t end up being a best seller, but that doesn’t mean that your next one won’t be. So the moral of this story is, keep on writing!
