Creative process: Writing a book requires creative, emotional, and business discipline

By Dennis Mellersh

Learning how to write a book, and the overall process of researching, writing, and promoting it (especially if you self-publish) includes more than just mastering the skill of writing.

It also requires a lot of discipline in terms of organizing your book project, focusing your creative efforts, keeping your emotions balanced and positive, and learning how to market your book.

It can be hard to do all of this while at the same time maintaining the right mindset to keep moving forward.

I found a video interview of Seth Godin that you might find helpful in dealing with this.

Seth Godin is successful self-employed marketing and personal growth expert and is the author of more than ten books on these topics.

He was interviewed by Bryan Elliot of Behind the Brand. The interview has been published on YouTube.
