I have read 10-20 books on writing. This is most concise, lucid, thorough book I have read yet. I am not writing an ebook myself, though. I am writing a fiction novel (in Norwegian, so most of you won't be able to read it if it ever is published - if it doesn't become a huge success, that is! :). With all wheeling and dealing at my work, I felt like writing something for pure pleasure of creating (and tool below lets me concentrate on creating, not technology!).
That doesn't mean that 7 day ebook didn't help! No wonder considering authors. Joe Vitale is bestselling author of Hypnotic Writing, Advanced Hypnotic Writing, and Spiritual Marketing. Joe Edwards wrote Selling Your Home Alone and The TEN Dirty Little Secrets of Mortgage Financing - and both of them are making a very nice income.
Visit their website; see if it doesn't capture you (like it did me). They have a special offer on book: only $30, including some nice bonuses. Jump over to http://www.smartsoftware.org/7day/ this moment - if only to enjoy way these two authors use words to entice!
But you need a good tool to write with!
Quite often I come across simple software - easy to install, to use or to tweak. Less often I come across brilliant software, with brilliant execution, features or ideas. Simple, brilliant software is even rarer. The Journal is one such creature.
For some time, I've had a book in my head. I've been building characters, setting up scenes and creating images and dialogues.
I have started on books before. I always hit a point where I get more captivated with perfecting previous words, paragraphs and pages than I am with creating new words.
Sure, I know; writing teachers say Write without editing. Leave it all for rewrite. Still your inner critic. Well, I am not capable of that - when I scroll down Word-document, I spot flaws, errors and logical mistakes - and I must fix them. OCD, I guess.
Then I came across Journal (TJ). At 3 Mb, it is a fast download, and it is something I can guarantee will stick in my Programs-folder like jam-spots to a three year olds sweater.
