This week, our theme has been writing Kindle fiction.
For more information, please head on over to our Just Write a Book Blog. There's a mile of information there which will help you in writing both fiction, and nonfiction.
If you missed any of this week's posts, here's a roundup of the articles.
"Can you really make money…"
Several writers have asked me this question in one form or another this week.
The short answer is that it's up to you. Here's a hard truth. If you don't write it, you can't sell it. So your first step if you want to write Kindle fiction, is to start writing. Set yourself a daily word count goal, and write.
Here's MarlaB's results from writing short stories, and publishing them on the Kindle. At the time of writing this post on Writer's Cafe, she'd written and published 75 short stories, and she's generous in sharing her results:
3533 books sold
0 stories published in March (was working on a novel)
3338 books sold
4 stories published in April
May 2013 (as of the time this was published)
740 books sold
1 stories published in May so far
Write, and amaze yourself
Writing's largely a matter of habit, of building your writing muscles. It's also at matter of attitude.
By "attitude" I don't mean bravado. I mean quiet determination. No one really cares whether you write or not. That's another truth. But if you can sit your butt in a chair and focus on writing each and every day, nothing else matters.
You’ll amaze others, and amaze yourself, with what you achieve. Get a writing process which works for you, and nothing and no one will be able to keep you from success. There's never been a better time to be a writer. Nothing stands between you, and your readers. So start writing.
In 2013, writing Kindle fiction is HOT, so we’ll have much more to say about it.
