    EXECUTION Results...Finally!

    Back in late 2010, I threw my hat into the writing/self-publishing ring. A friend had used a self-publishing service to get his first book into print, and it seemed like a good idea to test out. Needless to say, I knew nothing about marketing books or marketing anything at the time. I made many...

    INTRO Physician to writer to entrepreneur & halfway there

    Hi all! Pleased to meet you. I'm a mid-thirties woman from Europe, and I'll refrain from posting any specifics - for now, at least - because I joined after reading Unscripted to find a community of like-minded people to bounce ideas off each other, not to promote my business. Anyway, here's my...

    INTRO "I'm pregnant"

    An FTE for sure! My wife called me with these two thrilling, intoxicating and downright scary little words just over 3 months ago. I knocked over my chair in a hipster coffee shop, hopped on a Bird scooter and floored it home! I don't really like talking about myself or my goals (probably...

    Hello, Fastlaners! Do you consider yourself helpful? I joined this forum a few years back, avidly following in the footsteps of @HeldforRansom and @ChickenHawk. I've written a few books since then (27 novels, to be exact), some self-published, some as a ghostwriter, and I still follow...

    INTRO I used to write online as a tween, now I'm looking for more.

    Hi everyone! I'll start by saying "NO" I didn't write Twilight fan fiction at twelve. Though, I was inspired to write my own because of one. Shameful I know. Somehow, at the most awkward phase in a person's life, I wound up with 100,000 readers from a story I made up on the spot. I also won't...

    STORY WRITERS: Do You Manipulate Your Mood To Write?

    Yesterday I was writing a passage where I wanted to convey a lot of fear, anxiety and adrenaline. I couldn't write anything convincing when I was in my default state, but after I drank some coffee, put on some ominous music and dimmed the lights - it started coming out. Do you do anything to...

    To write a letter, or to hire a writer....

    Ok, here's the situation. I'm working a sales job. I took the job to get better at selling. This is an "earn while you learn" experience. I see an angle. I see an opportunity to (maybe) apply leverage by prospecting an area my new colleagues may have overlooked. My idea is to test my theory...

    EXECUTION Writing my first book

    I started TMF four days ago and I finished it this morning. It was kind of a surreal hour actually. I woke up at 5:30, a half hour later than usual, and jumped out of bed. "I am already behind!" I thought. "Why didn't I set my alarm?" I began my usual routine of drinking some coffee and...
