I’d wanted to publish a novel for so long. And the year I finally did it, I had tunnel vision. I kept my eyes on my goal and paid little attention to whether anyone else thought it was possible. When I finally reached the top of that mountain, it was incredible! But one revelation in particular took me off guard. So many people were not only thrilled for me, but also curious about my self-publishing journey.
I guess it was then that the statistic felt concrete: over 80% of people think they’d like to write a book!
(If you’re reading this, there’s probably an even better chance you feel the tug.)
Since so many are interested, I made this simple checklist. Obviously, some of the steps are more technical/tedious/involved than others, but you can use the list as a guide to get started. Every time you check off a milestone, celebrate that you’re moving one step closer to your big goal!
Two bits of advice? Set a deadline and get really mad about it 🙂
