The only limits you have …
I have published 11 books in the past couple years. I have it down to a science. I published a book that I developed from one of my most successful webinars in only two weeks. It was one of the easiest books that I have ever written and published.
It was non-fiction, like all of my previous works. I was pretty comfortable in my niches.

But fiction? Whoa! That was a completely different experience. I had been working on a handful of fiction books for a few years and it was just not working for me. It felt like a wall that I could not overcome.
Ironically, a very long time ago, like back in the 90’s, I used to write an occasional fictional tale for a New Age magazine in the Midwestern USA. I used to write press releases and fitness and health issues, but the fiction was one of my favorites. Now though it was quite a hurdle to leap over.
Setting goals and overcoming self limiting behavior is one of my favorite topics to speak on, so I needed to apply my own techniques to this new writing journey. I set goals for daily word count. I set goals for daily page edits. I set goals for when it would be released, and how many words and chapters in the final product. I chose not to believe in my own limitations. I chose to become the fiction author I knew that I could be.
I met my goals, but it was not at all easy. It was quite an achievement. For one day, without any sales, discounts, or other promotions, I was within 3 ranking slots of one of my favorite books that was an inspiration to my own fiction writing. My Sweet Infected HERE was the result of my very satisfying adventure in fiction. I am looking forward to the next fiction work that I’m already working on, using similar strategy as the first.
