As a writer or publisher of books, there are 3 things you need to achieve success: a dream, a vision and action.
“Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, and magic and power in it. Begin it now.” – Goethe
1. You need to have a dream that seems impossible to achieve.
Dreaming is something most writers are familiar with, especially if you write fiction. The need to dream is deeply embedded in our subconscious so that even when we are awake in the harsh morning light, the dreams don’t stop. This ability to dream is what makes fiction writing possible in the first place.
As a fiction writer, what is your biggest dream for your books?
Do you dream of being an author with multiple bestselling books? Or do you dream of being an author who people read in all the corners of the world? It is possible that your dream is totally unrelated and maybe it is simply to write.
