Fast and Easy are Relative Terms

In her Publishize article this week, Susan writes about being realistic regarding what fast and easy means when it comes to writing your book:

Write a Book the Fast and Easy Way

When she told me the slant of her article, I pointed out that both of those terms are relative. "Exactly!" she responded. When you think about what "fast and easy" means, you need to be thinking "compared to what?"
We've learned that lots of would-be authors want a fast and easy solution for writing their book. We've also learned, after self publishing ten books in three years, that writing books can be fast and easy, once you know what to do. That is one reason why we are committed to self publisher education.

One thing you can do, starting today, that will make your future publishing efforts faster and easier is to start writing. It doesn't matter what. Write blog entries. Write how-to articles. Just write. Exercising your "writing muscles" is one of the best things you can do to make writing your book faster and easier.

Susan often quotes her father, who puts it simply: "Writers write."
