It’s amazing: it really works when I Do as I SAY......

 

I started writing about the law of attraction last year, just for fun, and the whole thing became a story. I had not planned that; it just happened, and I just tagged along. It was too much fun to resist. Anyway, by the end I decided that it should be a book (or IT decided ?? not sure...).

 

It scared me to even think about publishing. But then I told myself that whatever happens, happens. If nothing happens that would be just fine with me. The moment I let go of that fear and pressure the thought came to me that I could take it in baby steps and first publish with kindle. Not many people would find it. I know that is against the purpose of publishing......

 

I heard a couple of speakers at the writers club say that part of getting published is getting rejected. One told us she got 70 rejections before she found a publisher. That did not sound like something I wanted to do. I had no idea what to do but managed to just let it go. And voila! I found out how I could publish the soft cover book with amazon without all that hassle. The info just popped up.

 

The next step, the scariest of all, is marketing. Everybody tells me that I have to start a blog and use the networking media and do book signings and and and. As long as I agreed, I felt very resistant to doing any of this stuff. Finally I thought PFT. I’ll think of something. Now I found out that my friends recommended my book on their message boards, and that I have actually sold a bunch of them already.

 

I don’t want to get rich with this anyway. The whole process has been interesting and fun. And now I am even selling books!!!

 

I am telling you this because it is so obvious that solutions just show up as soon as I stop worrying about the problems. Actually, that is what the story is about: CONSIDER IT DONE.... It’s funny how, what I am describing in my story, is happening to me. I am learning to LET GO and EXPECT. I mean REALLY doing it deliberately, not just theoretically.

 

I am so excited, I HAD to share this.

::woohoo :kiss:

I'm a writer and have been struggling with a project. The way you described letting go of it was so beautiful. The funny thing is that I already KNOW I won't have trouble publishing it once it's done--that much I've already allowed. It's just the work that's getting me.

In case you were serious, no. I already feel success for this project. I just know it. It's the getting there that's hard...

I guess it helped in my case that I didn't even think about publishing while I was writing. I was just writing for my pleasure.

When I made up my mind to publish I revised about a billion times. I heard people complain that revising is no fun. But I have to say that I actually enjoyed it. It felt like playing and molding with clay.

That was my first story. I started on my second and am curious if that will be as easy as the first.

What are you writing? Anything related to LOA? "Struggling ... project ... work" that all smacks of resistance. Can you tell a different story?

Are you writing because it's your desire or do you feel you have to write (job or whatever)? I am curious to hear more about it.

This is for my pleasure, but it's also because it's in my person that I HAVE to write. So it's like anything else where sometimes there is upstream and sometimes there is downstream, but I'm learning how to let go of the oars.

I have an MFA in poetry, so I write a lot of poetry, but lately I've been writing more fiction. I came up with a character that fascinates me and I love writing about her. There's nothing LOA in it, and perhaps the most Abe-ish thing about it is knowing when I am lined up with my character enough for it to flow. And then it's effortless, or it's only the good, exciting kind of effort, like a big discovery.

I don't know about achwiegut, but contrast helps me expand as a writer. Once I've expanded, it's downstream all the way, and it's so exciting, and I learn so much about myself.

not really, I haven't thought about that.

I like to keep it simple and just imagine wild water or lazy river images, depending on how I feel ... lol

Yes, I see those writer's blocks like the rocks in the stream. Sometimes I hate them, but most of the times I just sit on them for a while and rest...
