You enjoy translating your thoughts and feelings into printed words. And you have a powerful story or message burning in your heart that you want to share. There’s nothing wrong with writing for your own pleasure or catharsis, or for just your friends and family. But if what you desire to write could be a blessing to others, you may want to consider writing for publication.
How can you know whether the journey to publication is a path you should pursue? In this series of four video presentations, published author and freelance editor Kathy Ide addresses the "Top Ten Myths of Becoming a Published Author," describes "Ten Things Authors Do Besides Write," and reveals "How to Avoid the Mistakes that Scream 'Novice.'” Plus she will also encourage you to consider the question “Is God Calling You to Write?”
This four part video package is a must for anyone considering the possibility of sharing his or her writing through publication—whether traditional publishing or self-publishing.
