Another Free Book? Yeah, I’m Overdoing It!

I know, I know!

Just how many books have I published! Quite a bit, as it turns out. This current book on promotion is all about finding focus and I want to share it with you.

Finding focus isn’t a matter of learning how to focus. You already know how to focus!

What it requires is understanding how focus works and to direct, improve and apply it to the right aspects of your life until it becomes second nature to you.

In this book, I put together an elaborate guide on how to find focus in the long run and for short term results. It is a fluff-free focused book that consists of every single practical way to build focus until you can call upon it in mere seconds.

You will learn what it entails to enter The Zone and how to achieve maximum productivity whilst focusing on the task at hand.

Cool? Cool!

I Drive Myself Crazy

Trying to be perfect is a pain in the ass.

Do you ever wake up on some mornings wanting to push out the most amount of work possible but your body, mind and spirit just isn’t in the right space to do it?

That’s what happened today and I drove myself crazy trying to work. For me, when I reach that point of actually losing the enjoyment of working on something, all my inspiration and creativity plummets.

Sometimes, walking away for even a few hours can do tremendous good for an artist.

It just so happens that my stubbornness got the better of me today. I worked until all I could think about was crawling into a ball and being alone.

I just wanted this new book launch to be perfect but I’m not sure how that’s turning out. My heart’s in the right place but something is bringing me down these last few days.

Sometimes, I get lost in all the noise my brain makes. But, in all this madness, I always learn valuable lessons.

For some reason my heart feels full of emotions and rather than try to articulate the words to describe what’s going on in my heart and head, I’d rather call it a night.

Thanks for reading and thanks for the support!

The big epiphany is NOW free on Amazon Kindle. Give it a read and let me know if you can relate to my personal story of disease and overcoming it 🙂

Oh, yeah, INFINITY will be releasing on March 3rd! I’m so excited for you to read this fiction story, it’s so special!

Have a fantastic weekend.

I’m Debating With Myself

Can I manage 5000 words a day or will it shove me down a mountain straight into a pit of burnout like last week?

I don’t like to plateau. In my mind, I feel like I’m good enough to write at an elite level. But, while showering, it dawned on me that quantity does not guarantee quality.

I see a shit ton of people publishing these niche books on things like microwaves and coconut oil and I cringe. I don’t want to be one of those writers. I don’t want to ever do things for ‘easy money’. There’s no such thing as easy money. 

I strongly believe a time is quickly approaching when readers won’t be generous enough to give an author a second chance if they publish 20 page books that are nothing more than a sales gimmick.

Those guys will not last on Amazon. Which is why all my books will be nothing less than a 100 pages. I don’t want to cheat people of their money. If anything, I want them to feel like buying my books is a solid deal. 

Quality is the way to go. So the debate is more focused on whether or not I can maintain a certain standard for 5000 words a day.

I’ll give it a shot tomorrow and report back.

Over 120 Downloads Yesterday!

Hoorah!

I’m joyed that my new non-fiction book, The Productivity Handbook For Lazy People, was downloaded over 120 times on the first day of promotions

Now, it may not be the highest I’ve had in a day (976 downloads :p), but it’s certainly a great start for the new year.

Thank you for all my blog readers who took the time to download and share the book with others, it means A LOT to me!

I spent most of today working on INFINITY, trying to figure out a few details that could spice things up even more. My goal is to create an entertaining book from start to finish. I get bored when I read stories that focus on a slow build up.

Aside from that, I resubmitted new covers for old books and worked on adding in additional chapters to a revised edition of How To Build Good Writing Habits.

It’s been a great week of work but by 4pm, I literally dozed off after sitting down for just a minute. I’m THAT tired.

Once again, thanks for the support. For those of you who haven’t downloaded my new book, you can find it HERE.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Working All Day And Published A New Book!

Hoorah!

I managed to polish and publish an eBook I have been working on for quite some time. It was quite a daunting task to study, test and evaluate different techniques and principles on productivity before applying it to my book but everything worked out pretty darn well.

Don’t worry, this isn’t a sales pitch. If anything, I’ll be running a free book promo from thursday so if you are interested, hit this link and grab it if you’re interested in checking out what I’ve been working on during spare time.

Okay, back to my life. Strangely enough, I feel kind of addicted to working. No more can I sit around and daydream or pass time in front of the telly. Most of the time I’m either thinking about writing or actually writing.

Things haven’t been this way for a long time and the momentum is building on the daily.

Other than that, there’s nothing much to report beside hitting that portion of my story where things can get rather daunting. Fishing out all the details while spinning conflict and controversy is a challenge I’m still trying to master.

I can’t wait to share INFINITY with you guys.

Until then, let the grind keep grinding.

I’m Learning To Deal With The Doubt Attached To Being A Writer

I won’t lie, people give me strange reactions when I say that I want to pursue a career in writing.

They don’t doubt that I can do it, they doubt it’s actually a career. I see it written across their faces, despite the income I’ve earned over the years from being a freelance writer for many inbound marketing agencies and clients.

I’m not sure why but there’s a stigma attached to being a writer. People tend to think it’s merely something you do to pass time when you’re 65 years old and retired from work.

It irked me.

Other peoples doubts tend to rub off on me when it’s so consistent and so apparent. It bothered me at first but now I’m starting to deal with it quite well. It lights a fire in my ass to succeed as a writer and show them what it truly means to be a writer/author!

As of late, I’m searching for the positives to any given situation and it helps me work with a sense of ease. I’m enjoying myself as a writer these days. So much so that it resembles how i felt a few years ago when I started.

I don’t know what others think but to me, success requires complete commitment. Being a writer/author is just as legit and demanding of a career choice as that of an accountant or entrepreneur or manager. If anything, it requires us to be all of that and MORE!

Try to ignore other peoples doubt if you truly have the desire, commitment and dedication to pursue your dreams. Eventually, hard work adds up and results will appears. That’s just the formula for success.

Hope you’re having a productive monday, I sure am! Destroyed a couple thousand words, wrote this blog post, exercised, marketed, built some backlinks to a niche site I’m working on and practiced by creative thinking skills.

All in all, it’s been anything but a blue monday.

Catch you tomorrow,

Conspiracy Theorists Could Make The Best Writers

Usually in movies, a conspiracy theorist is made to look foolish and ludicrous. They’re either depicted as almost mentally unstable or as comedy relief.

But, in the world of books, conspiracy theorists could actually be the Gods of writing. I kid you not! This is the truth.

These are individuals who don’t simply see something unusual and just shrug it off with a simple – “I wonder what happened.”

Instead, conspiracy theorists run through every possibility, no matter how ridiculous it may sound to others, of what could explain a certain occurrence.

As a writer, you could highly benefit from being a conspiracy theorist. I’ve been trying to work conspiracies and prophecies into my story and it’s taking some practice but the amount of possibilities I’ve opened up to the plot by simply speculating has been phenomenal.

I’ve been working on a strategy that not only improves how easily you think up explanations for events but also improves creative thinking. Today, I’ve been going through old mementos from my parents past and just thinking up stories as to what it could represent, how they got ahold of it and where it was found or made.

Do this for just 15 minutes a day, every day, and I’m more than certain you’ll unleash the creativity within you. Heck, pull up a few stories on the net or scan a newspaper and try to piece together what could have been the motive and conspiracy behind an unfortunate murder or robbery.

It’s fun and you’ll gain a new skill that can help you write juicier plots!

Oh, by the way, today has been a productive day! Not only did I manage to go out and sort some errands, I also managed to fit in a workout session and wrote almost 3000 words! I’m loving the feeling attached to progress. Once you get started, the more you work, the better you feel and the easier it becomes!

If you’re feeling lazy or had a long day, try and fit in some time to write regardless. If you work when it feels tough, you’ll never face the issue of not being able to write religiously. If anything, it will become an irreplaceable part of your life.

Oops, I got carried away! Sorry for the lecture haha!

Anyway, have a great weekend and don’t quit on those resolutions…just yet! 😉
