A crucial part of becoming a better writer is becoming an avid reader. As I inch closer to publishing my first book, you might have noticed that more of my mentions are closely linked to becoming a published author. The materials I consume, including audiobooks, podcasts, and apps, have primarily been centered around first-time authors, content marketing, or something related. This week is clear evidence as I highlight the book Reach by Becky Robinson.

Reflecting On Reach

One big takeaway I drew from Becky’s book was defining the goal of my book. In Reach, Becky highlights fame, fortune, or impact/reach as motivators for writing a book. While earning a living off of my book sales would be fantastic, that is not my goal. I certainly do not anticipate any wealth coming from the sale of my book. Fame is so fleeting. It is not something I seek on my journey to publish my work.

My Goals For Publishing

Initially, I started out writing my book because I wanted to share my story in hopes of helping others struggling with fear and anxiety. I have also found it incredibly therapeutic. The longer I work on the book, the more my goals expand.
