How to Tap into Your Personal “Why to Speak” as an Author
You put a lot of time, effort, love, heart, and soul into your book. In many ways, it’s your baby. And you would love for it to be in the hands of as many readers as possible.
Is it because you want to become rich and famous? Possibly, although there are way easier ways to do that!
Is it because you’re a glutton for punishment and your favorite way to punish yourself is to banish yourself to a room with a computer and type away for several months? Possibly. That’d be weird, but we all have our quirks, right? No judgment.
Is it because you want to make a difference in the world? Is it because you want to educate, inform, inspire, entertain, or in some other way transform your reader – even if only for a moment?
Whether you write fiction or nonfiction, most authors create what they create because they are on a mission. Sometimes it’s a big mission. Sometimes is a small mission. Sometimes is a self-serving mission. Sometimes it’s a selfless mission. And sometimes it’s a mission that’s a mix and match of all those types of mission.
So, what’s your mission?
That’s where you’re going to find your personal why.
In this episode, Carma shares:
- 5 external practical reasons authors should be speaking
- 2 lines of questioning that will help you discover and tap into your personal “why to speak”
