5,000 Words a Day With Ray

One lesson I learned at last week’s Worldcon: the most successful authors (like Brandon Sanderson, Kevin J. Anderson, Dan Wells, Howard Tayler, Scott Lynch, George R.R. Martin, and Eric Flint, to name just a few who were present) know their writing is a job.

Kevin J. Anderson impressed me – the guy has written 125 books, 51 of which have appeared on national or international bestseller lists; he has over 23 million copies in print in thirty languages. He has won or been nominated for the Nebula Award, Bram Stoker Award, the SFX Reader’s Choice Award, and New York Times Notable Book…. and shows up for work every day with a goal. A number of words he will write that day.

I’m now writing at least 5,000 words a day. To keep myself accountable, I’ve placed a widget with the day’s word count in the sidebar. It’s just a text widget, which I have to update manually each day. I’d love something that shows a neat little graph of: my total daily wordcount, wordcount on each project, and a progress bar for each… but I haven’t found anything yet. If you have any suggestions, please post them in the comments below. Thanks. Now… I gotta go write somethin’.

Podcast Delayed This Week

This week’s podcast will be delayed until Friday, because of some unavoidable disruptions in my schedule… but there will be an episode this week. I don’t want this to be the week I break the streak!

Turn Your Life’s Message Into Your Life’s Work

Do you ever feel that you have a message that you need to get out to the world? Have you ever thought that you have a book “inside”, but could never seem to get that book onto paper?

Message in a Bottle

What if there was a solution to this challenge that could be easy, quick, and fun?

Well, I propose that there is exactly that type of solution. And I’m going to share my new method of finding your Life Message, and then transforming that into your Lifework. Yes, you can get paid for the wisdom you gained over the course of your life.

During This Free Webinar, You Will:

  • Discover a totally unique way to articulate the message you know you have inside even if you’ve tried before and could never quite get it right.
  • See how to finally get paid  for what you know… without having to worry about  being pushy or “salesy”.
  • Find a unique formula for writing a world-class book that allows you to only attract motivated prospects who know the value of what you’re offering, and are predisposed to trust you. (This works even if you are not a “writer”.)
  • Realize why it’s often more profitable to do the exact polar opposite of what everyone else is doing, especially when it comes to marketing your ideas.
  • Learn an easy and effective way to make sales… without having to act “salesy” and without having to resort to making any hypey claims (like everyone else does).

I’m excited to be presenting this new, free webinar training, Thursday night January 30, at 9 PM Eastern.
