As a book writing coach, I have heard from budding authors:
“is my writing too rebellious?”
“I really want to write raw, you know express myself and be a rebel writer!”
What does it mean to you to be a rebel writer?
Is it about expressing yourself, saying it like it is and sharing your point of view?
-If you obey all the rules, you miss all the fun – Katherine Hepburn
Do you feel that your voice is not being heard? Perhaps that your opinion is ignored or that no one seems to be listening to you?
Then I tell you – it is time to write your book!
I have written 4 books, 2 of fiction and 2 of non fiction.
And as some of you know, I have more than 200 blogs. Also contributions to a handful of anthologies.
I have penned plays, scripts and monologues
My experience of the Roller Coaster Book Ride Journey is first hand and recent.
And understanding what it is like not to be heard, understood or believed – was and still is, one of my big reasons to write!
Here are 3 things to keep in your mind and to bring out the best in you.
- Value who you are and what you have to say. Your word counts.
- Do the writing. Write raw. Get the job done. Just Write!
- Be a Rebel Writer – and say it like it is. Don’t worry what others think or say. Let them enjoy their own opinions
Is it time for you to gain kudos and notoriety? Are you ready to get off that comfy sofa and just be a Rebel Writer?
-I would rather be a rebel than a slave – Emmeline Pankhurst
When you write a book, when you put your version of life, your expertise down on paper – no one can take that away from you.
The book is ready to be opened – by anybody.
Your book can take a reader on an experience that inspires, acquires knowledge and satisfaction, and a feeling they have learned and gained something valuable.
Having the confidence to start writing about what you really want to write about and then having the courage to finish it – takes determination and focus.
It also means giving your best, sharing your expertise in an accessible and generous way.
And if people call you a Rebel Writer, you know they are assuming at best and judging at worst.
Develop your self confidence to write what you want.
Have the courage to act upon it.
Be creative and write!
Ask for guidance, advice and help.
