My family is atypical in many ways, and what I’m about to share is one more reason to believe that claim. We exchange gifts like most people who celebrate Christmas, but there’s always at least one gift that shows up for each person from a local (to my parents) thrift store.
There’s a wide variety of silly stuff available at the thrift store and usually the gifts are fairly random: bowling balls with monogrammed bags, an aebleskiver pan (which I received even though it was supposed to go to my sister), a nappy old electric neck massager, etc.
This year my gift was an old book entitled “Maybe You Should Write A Book” by Ralph Daigh. I’m not very far into it since my time is very limited, but I’m hoping to churn through it rather quickly. It has input from a range of authors who were popular back in the 1970s on how they got started and what they wish they’d known back when they were just getting started. Mom and Dad picked out that one because they know I’m interested in writing an e-book. Pretty thoughtful, eh?
I’ll share any insights I come across, and anything I might learn as I slowly write a couple of e-books.
Question(s) of the day:
Have you written an e-book? If so, what advice can you offer to those of us who are just getting into it?
