IT’S TEMPORARY! – POWER OF POSITIVE THINKING!


IT’S TEMPORARY! – POWER OF POSITIVE THINKING! Have you ever felt so ill you feel like you are dying? That is it a catastrophe and your world is ending! But the truth is you are not dying, you have a virus and you will be better again! You have to think to yourself, this is temporary; it will pass, otherwise, what is the alternative if you don’t?

I currently have a virus that has lead to a chest infection. My boss has kindly let me take a day’s holiday this week, along with my two days off, so I can get 3 days of rest! That I need. Of course resting to me, is getting some sleep, but also watching educational videos, writing blog posts, and working out precisely what my future holds and entails, and my destiny – that being, I really do want to create an ebook store full of my own books for your personal and professional development across multiple genres, and also video training courses. All my mind keeps saying to me, is; ‘All I want to do is write’, ‘All I want to do is write’, ‘All I want to do is write”; to the point where it is now making feel ill that I am not doing it enough and not listening as much as I should be to myself. My inner voice is screaming this is what you should be doing right now and forever – so why have I just become in this state? And why don’t I just get on with it?

Because my mind has been considering many options of how to make money online during these past few weeks, in order to provide for my future, as I have to look after myself financially. I have literally been reading up, researching, and attending live webinars and other online training for hours, as I know to make a full-time career out of writing, is one of the toughest roads to ever take; if you are writing from your heart and your own stuff that will also appeal to others! I want to remain true to my authentic, quirky self, while providing books that others need! It can be a dilemma – or is it that I am making it a dilemma?

I keep coming back to my roots of writing because when I think of following in the footsteps of others, buying their programmes, their courses, if it is not to do with writing and the writing I like to do, all my mind keeps saying is – when are you going to have time to write? You can’t not write, to not write actually makes me feel sick now. It’s like I am stretching my writing creativity so thinly by not writing and producing more books when the momentum is there to do it, that it is painful and sore, like a wound. But what to do? As  I have 18 Live and fully functional websites to work on and maintain, how can I look after them, design more T-Shirts that I need to design and still keep writing lots of new stuff! Yes, I said new stuff, because the truth is, since publishing my Twitter book and discovering how well it is selling, sometimes with little or no promotion on my part, it means there is a market for the type of books I want to write – or at least in that genre. It is already outselling my Break Through The Barriers Of Redundancy book that I spent 2 and a half years writing. How long do you think it took me to write my Twitter book and publish it to Amazon Kindle? Well, as I already had some of the content from previously teaching it to my Twitter for Recovery students – 27 days!! Yes, I said 27 days! Is that a miracle or what!! It is far less expensive than my redundancy book to buy, so I need to sell a lot more to get close to even one sale of my redundancy book, but the main thing is, I am getting my name out there as a writer, doing something I love and helping a ton of people in the process.

People don’t understand that writing is a part of my soul that I cannot live without! It is my therapy, my love of my life (guinea pigs are too) and the best of me. It’s helped me through the worst of times and if it was in the form of a person, I would be writing; if it were a being of it’s own; I would be a Sandra Bellamy writing being – which is what I actually am! Okay, so I am glad and grateful for a physical body that I have grown to love and care for and I would never want to be dead, but alive forever- yes, I said forever, if I could, I would – particularly if I didn’t age!

So my destiny is to have lots of Kindle books published and some training courses via my Quirky Books sites and Quirky Academy sites, and a fair few of my others too – it’s a huge challenge for me! I have been getting better at writing and publishing on Kindle, and found that sometimes publishing shorter books can be more beneficial than publishing longer books, both for me and the recipient. However, my new ‘Asexual Perspectives, Love, Life and Sex, ACElebration of Diversity’ book, looks like it is going to be huge, as I have interviewed around 40 asexuals across the globe for it, and one person’s answers is 19 pages long! So I still want to publish longer books where there is a need for it, even though it is mega time-consuming, if it’s going to change lives it will be worth it!

I am thinking about doing a follow up Twitter book, because I think there is a need for it! So much writing to do, so little time, and after all that, being quirky, I still want to learn about other stuff! And there is the head-banging moment, when you realise, you need to keep learning stuff too, in order to write more books, leaving less time for writing, but a bigger brain capacity to take in more information to hopefully write more books! I would say it’s a chicken and egg situation, but rather a book and brain situation! I think this has been one of THE longest posts I had written for a long time, especially about writing and my love of it. This blog is where it all started for me, and whatever happens, this blog will run to the end of my time and hopefully stay around even more! The good thing about writing and publishing non-fiction books on Amazon, is that I will continue to help others even when I am no longer in person to do so, and leave a lasting legacy, that makes life so fulfilling, so satisfying, and so worthwhile.

Until next time my friends, thank you for your continued support, I love you all and think you are incredible and amazing!

If you are interested in my books, I have shared the details down below and have my redundancy book on special offer! I have to stress that this book is not just about redundancy, it teaches you a lot of life skills too!

Until next time, embrace your quirky and each others, and I will write soon

Happy 3rd Birthday Snow!

Happy 3rd Birthday my Snow White princess.xxxxxxxx

Tonight is Snow’s 3rd Birthday party and I will have some new photos and a video on my http://www.youtube.com/quirkybooksTV channel that I will post here; although it may not be today because we are at the party.

Last night I was hard at work on the final amendments for the printed version of my Break Through The Barriers Of Redundancy To Get Back Into Work – An A-Z ‘How To’ Guide. I am simultaneously working on a few updates/amendments to the already published Kindle version. A DEA – Disability Employment Advisor, no longer exists at the Job Centre with that title. Also, ex Dragons Den star and entrepreneur Doug Richard, who I mention in my current Kindle book, has had charges brought against him, which he is currently denying, but I still think it’s best to remove his name from future copies. The problem with my original master copy Kindle version that I created in Word for Mac 2011, is almost every hyperlink has turned black and I can’t turn them all back to their original orange colour. Some have unhyperlinked themselves, so I have to manually re-do each one.

Have a quirky good day.

First Ever Author Radio Interview


image
Photo of me before filming some outdoor scenes for my Break Through The Barriers Of Redundancy book trailer.

Hi everyone

Another action packed week for me.

I had my first ever Author radio interview yesterday on Radio Tircoed. It’s a community radio station based in Swansea in the UK. It covers Swansea and South Wales locally, and is broadcast around the world on the internet. The presenter; was a good interviewer. He was great at asking me the right questions, to enthuse my audience about my Break Through The Barriers Of Redundancy To Get Back Into Work – An A-Z ‘How To’ guide. It well very well, especially considering the presenter’s phone line was quiet, and at one point I couldn’t hear what he was asking me.

I had two more book sales in a couple of days. One from the UK, by a person I hadn’t heard from in about 8 months; until connecting back through a forum update on my status, the day before. The other from someone in France; and I still don’t know who that was who bought it. All the other buyers of my book; have told me they bought it. So thank you to that person, whoever you are, I appreciate it.

I spent a couple of days this week working on my book trailer. Even thought last time we met, we thought that filming was over; me and my director/producer/editor, filmed two more scenes that are essential to the storyline. We chose music for the trailer – I chose beforehand and he agreed, which was great. It’s mighty powerful music that I bought the license to use. We also changed the movie clips around and I rewrote some of my script for the voiceover and re-recorded it. I cannot stress enough, that this is a book trailer like no other. Crossing two/three genres of subject matter – Redundancy Motivation/Inspiration. I like to quirk it up and help people as much as I can.

Have I mentioned I don’t do normal?

Thanks for continuing to support my journey into print. I am about to upload the contents of my book; for the printed version. The book cover still needs to be resized; and custom ISBNs need to be bought, to be published under my own imprint of Quirky Books. My Kindle edition is published by Quirky Books.
