I Wrote a Children's Book now whatI've written a children's book now.
Where do I get past the "I've just written a book, now what?" stage? : write
I' ve just written a book..... almost four years ago. I tried to edit myself, then I tried to query, then I tried to write new project, rewrite, new project, etc... This is me, several first 4 chapter with different impulses, a pile of shorts, currently on the fifth outline of my first book, and I don't even know if I'm working on anything at all at this point.
I' ve not asked any questions for three years. Honestly, I literally reread a great deal and I really think I'm a pretty good author, but I know that I'm not the best and can always do well. I don't know when to just do it and make huge requests.
From the first sketch of my first novel I have not had the guts to face this kind of renunciation. Although I have for most of the last three years resigned myself to the fact that I may not be able to become a novelist. Nobody I know and write, and not many I know even write very well.
You know, I don't even have proper study groups in my area. Online is the best piece of advise I could find, "keep writing" or "keep reading". I have done so, and I know I will do so for the remainder of my lifetime, but I am at a juncture where I need to engage in a genuine careers or continue my letter, and I do not know how to make that one.

I was wondering what would come of having an entrepreneur adopt the typing skills of a children's book writer like myself. So, I resolved to find out by conducting a business woman entrepreneur workshops in Rwanda and Afghanistan. This was part of the Peace Through Business meeting organised by the Institute for Economic Empowerment of Womens and organised by AT&T in Dallas.
It was my aim to help these wives to find and tell their tales by creating children's literature. Here is what we have discovered: 1. Start with a heroe. The history of every company has a history of how it came into being. It is sometimes difficult for companies, especially females, to see themselves as characters in their own histories.
Making history can make it easy. My first step was to ask each of the participants to write her name in the book name. Classical tales have the same Paradigma: A heroe who is confronted with a challenge goes on a trip. A lot of females at the meeting were sharing the same issue.
"but I had two homes. Zahra's issue in Kabul, Afghanistan, was that all the girls she knew were under stress from the crisis. Their trip took them to the construction of a leisure centre for girls with indoor pools, gym facilities and a paint ball area. Why not use it when it comes to introducing a company to prospective buyers?
Chantal's history led me to investment in her garage in Kigali, which she opened after four month wait to have her own used. Evil guy makes a great storyline. I was on the fringes of my home when Parwarish told her tale about a friend who took cash from a deal they had won.
Now Mathilde operates an on-line nutrition programme for those who need help to plan wholesome food. It' not possible not to have roots for these businessmen after they have heard their histories. Storytelling is mighty. Mary Karr in The Art of Memoir writes: "When we hear each other's tales, our values of the feel-good sex hormone oxy-tocin, which breastfeeding mother excrete, increase.
" This was also the case at the COP. Having helped these girls compose their tales, I asked if anyone would be willing to part. A few tales made us smile. I' m not sure that would have been the case if they had reread their commercial agendas out loud. However, the girls left and knew how to tell their tales.
The adoption of your history can be mighty and transformational. Now, I trust that each of these businessmen will meet a noble entrepreneur who wants to listen to a good tale - and who can help to create a happy future.
