## Foreword to the Paperback Edition
When I first started writing, I had no idea how I was going to get published. All I knew was that I wanted to be a writer. I didn’t know how to get there, but I knew that I had to write.
I didn’t have a plan. I just started writing. I wrote every day, and I kept writing until I had something I was happy with. After I had written the first draft of my first book, I submitted it to publishers and agents. I sent it out to as many places as I could think of. I got a few rejections, but for the most part, I received positive feedback. People told me that they liked my book, and they told me what they liked about my book. They told me where they thought I could improve my writing. They gave me advice on how I could make my writing better. I took what they said to heart and started to write again. I kept sending out my book to more and more places, and after a while, I started to get a few more rejections. The rejections got harder and harder to take, and it seemed like no matter how hard I tried, I just couldn’t seem to get my book published. I couldn’t figure out why my book wasn’t getting published. Why couldn’t I get published?
Then one day, I was talking to a friend of mine, and he said something that changed my life. He said, “You know, your book is really good. It’s really good, but it’s not good enough. You need to write a better book.”
That was it. That was all it took for me to realize that I was writing a book that wasn’t good enough, and that I needed to do something to make my book better. That’s when I decided to start writing this book. I decided that I would write this book to help other writers break through their writer’s block and get their books published. This book is for writers who want to write, but they don’t know where to start. This is a book about how to write your book, how to make your book the best book that it can be, and how to publish your book so that you can get your book out into the world and make a living doing what you love. I hope that you enjoy reading this book and that it helps you to write the book that you have been wanting to write for a long time. If you have any questions about this book, please feel free to contact me. I would be happy to answer any questions that you might have. I look forward to hearing from you and to working with you as you write your own book.
In this chapter, you will learn:
– Why writers get stuck
– How to get started
The most important thing to remember when it comes to writing is that writing is hard. Writing is hard because it takes a lot of time and effort to get your ideas out of your head and onto the page. It is hard to write because you have to put yourself out there. You have to expose yourself to the world in a way that you never thought you would. When you write, you are opening yourself up to criticism. You are exposing yourself to people who will tell you what they think about what you have written. They may tell you that you are a bad writer, that your book sucks, or that your ideas are stupid. All of these things are true, and you should expect them. You should expect people to tell you when you are doing something wrong, but you shouldn’t let these things discourage you. You shouldn’t give up on your writing because people don’t like what you write or don’t understand what you are trying to say. You can’t please everyone, and if you try to please everyone with your writing, you won’t be able to please anyone. You just have to be true to yourself and to your writing. If your writing is something that you want to do, then you should do it, even if no one else likes it. You don’t have to worry about what other people think, because you are the only person who can judge your own work. You will know if your work is good or if it isn’t. If it is good, then other people will like it, but if it is bad, then no one is going to like it.
