Became a Published Author in 2018

Last month, to kick off the new year, lots of readers and writers made optimistic and ambitious goals. But there’s a 2018 resolution and achievement goal that you’ll love, which you may not have thought of yet. It might even make you rich and famous.

You Can Be a Published Author

Publish your own book, and then put it on an online platform where it will get in front of millions of readers. Not just readers in your region, either. You can connect with a network of readers that spans the globe in multiple languages. Publishing your book electronically is very easy and inexpensive, too. It can be as simple as just producing a PDF file. There are even classic books by people as famous as Jane Austen, Henry David Thoreau, and Charles Dickens that sometimes are so old that they are no longer copyrighted. Take your pick of any book that is in the public domain and republished it yourself. Then you have a book that may have once been a best seller, and you can market it and make money from it.

Be an Author Even if You Aren’t a Skilled Writer

Even if you aren’t a trained writer, you can just write about a field of expertise you have, a special hobby you’re good at, memoir, or whatever topic you like and know the best. Maybe you like to write poems, have led a life that would make an interesting biography, or you can write a cookbook. One woman who used to clean houses for a living wrote a book about how to save time by cleaning your house faster. It was a bit hit, so she followed it up with a book about how to start your own house cleaning business. Soon she retired from cleaning houses to focus on her lucrative writing career.

It’s Easier Than You Think

If you prefer to write a novel, a children’s book, a detective thriller, a sci-fi story, or some other genre, just start with a basic plot and story outline. Then it’s just a matter of sitting down and writing it. Many authors write 500 words a day, which is only two double-spaced pages. Do that for six months and you have a book of about 350 pages. But most popular books are half that size, so you could write three or four books a year. Or write 3,000 words a day, which is about 15 pages or one chapter. You’ll have a book-sized manuscript done in just one month.
