The Successful Author Mindset: A Handbook for Surviving the Writer’s Journey

Being a writer is not just about typing.

It’s also about surviving the roller-coaster of the creative journey.

Self-doubt, fear of failure, the need for validation, perfectionism, writer’s block, comparisonitis, overwhelm, and much more. When you’re going through these things, it can feel like you’re alone. But actually, they are part of the creative process, and every author goes through them too.

This book collects the mindset issues that writers experience, that I have been through myself over the last nine years, and that perhaps you will experience at different times on the creative journey.

Each small chapter tackles a possible issue and then offers an antidote, so that you can dip in and out over time. It includes excerpts from my own personal journals as well as quotes from well-known writers. I hope it helps you on the road to becoming a successful author.

The book includes:

Part 1: Mindset Aspects of Creativity and Writing

  • Self-doubt and imposter syndrome
  • Need for validation
  • Fear of failure
  • Fear of rejection and criticism
  • Your inner critic
  • Fear of judgment

  • “Why write? There are too many books in the world already”
  • “I don’t have the time or self-discipline to write”
  • “I’m not finding writing much fun. It’s hard work.”
  • “I keep starting things and not finishing them”
  • Dealing with friends, family and writer’s groups
  • “How do I find my voice?”
  • Comparisonitis or “Everyone is better than me”

Part 2: Mindset Aspects after Publishing

  • Anti-climax and creative dissatisfaction
  • What is your definition of success?
  • What happens when you tell people that you’re an author?
  • “I’m overwhelmed”
  • Dealing with fans, authenticity and drawing the line
  • Haters gonna hate
  • Ambition, fame and fortune
  • Giving up

EDITING The RedPen Way: 10 steps to successful self-editing

Anne Rainbow, RedPen mentor, explains her tried and tested approach to self-editing.

Writing as Jenny Lawson, Anne is an established and traditionally published non-fiction author, and editor. After 35 years in the publishing world, Anne turned her attention to the challenges facing fiction writers.

Aware of the uphill battle and frustrations experienced by writers who received rejection slip after rejection slip, Anne set up her RedPen group in the late 1990s. Her objective was – and still is – to help budding writers to learn how to edit their own words, and therefore to maximise their chances of having their stories and novels accepted for publication.

Now, with more writers choosing to self-publish, Anne is making her self-editing RedPen system available to a wider audience. In the indie publishing world, it’s sensible to hire an editor before going to print, but a writer who can self-edit will benefit from lower editing costs.

With her simple three-task system, Anne shows how EDITING The RedPen Way can become a SMART (specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and timely) route to a polished manuscript. And, she makes it sound fun!

How to Become a Travel Writer: An Essential Guide to Creating a Successful Career in Travel Writing

If you’re someone who enjoys travelling and sharing your experiences through writing, then this book is for you!

Read on your PC, Mac, smart phone, tablet, or Kindle device.

These days, anybody can become a travel writer. Browsing through online blogs alone, you will find hundreds (if not thousands) of individuals who have taken on the challenge to write about their travel experiences in a compelling or persuasive way. However, not all of them can rightfully claim to be a successful travel writer. Being a travel writer and being a successful travel writer are two completely different things.

First and foremost, to be a travel writer, you need to be an excellent writer to begin with; one who has the uncanny ability to write in a way that entertains, vividly describes a place, and makes the reader feel as if he’s actually there too. In order to be a successful travel writer, though, you need even more: You must also be a good photographer, a good conversationalist, a good eater, a good scout, and so much more. You need to be able to tell the stories of other people living in the locale that you are visiting. And the reward for developing these skills? A successful travel writer gets paid to do all of this. To sum it up, if you’re interested in becoming a successful travel writer, and you’re willing to go the extra mile – both literally and figuratively, then you too can make a fruitful career in travel writing. Let’s get started!

Here Is A Preview Of What You’ll Learn…

  • Preparing to Become a Travel Writer
  • How to Find Compelling Content
  • Creating a Unique Angle
  • How to Start a Travel Blog
  • Tips for Achieving Success
  • Much, much more!
