Evaluating Your Book Idea
In the beginning, is a message.
You have something to say. A message that wants to get out of you. That needs to get out of you or else it will keep you up every night and drive you crazy.
At some point, the idea occurs to you like a voice from heaven, “I should write a book.” It’s a terrifying, wildly unreasonable idea. Your identity is bent out of shape just thinking about it.
Could I be a writer? Could my writing be published for others to read? And most outrageous of all, could I get paid to do that writing?
