If you've ever dreamed of writing a book and having it published, this is the book. Author Mike Reuther shows how easy it is to write a book simply by tapping into one's creativity and letting the words flow. Reuther shares some of his own frustrations in trying to write and get published. He makes it clear that one can have a book written in no time at all. Includes information on literary agents and publishers.
Itís my contention that too many people whoíve given up plans of writing a book or stopped writing one do so for no other reason than they feel itís too difficult.
So why do you want to write? Perhaps thatís a question you need to ask yourself. Then again, maybe not. I mean, itís not all that mysterious. We all have this need to make ourselves heard. So let it be a given that you have to write, that the overwhelming urge is present.
Maybe itís your never-told before memoir of a horrible upbringing in poor Appalachia, or your shattered childhood with an alcoholic father and crack-addicted mother in the inner city, or your story fighting the Viet Cong and the men you saw killed.
Maybe you have a happy story to tell. You want to write. Never mind the reason.
Youíve been burning to get your story out there. That coming of age novel, that mystery, that bodice ripper filled with sex and love and happy endings for the girl from Peoria. Great.
Keep in mind youíre not insane. Millions. Yes. Thatís right. Millions are out there just like you. Even if you think youíre unique in your desire to write and be published and perhaps become a best-selling author, youíre hardly the first to dream such dreams. The fact is, there are so many like you out there in small towns and big cities, in the halls of academia and in corporate America, in unemployment lines and God knows where else -¨ dying to write. ¨¨
The competition to be published, make no mistake about it, is fierce. Of course, you can find this out the hard way, as did I, and so many aspiring writers before me, some of them famous, some them the most obscure scribblers of the ages. Everyone, it seems, wants to write. Itís what you find out from literary agents and publishers that reject your manuscripts.
