I’m just writing this post off the top of my head (so the post is probably full of grammatical errors – you’ll see why I mention that in a moment), and I’m writing it because I’m fully aware that there are many potentially budding Amazon Kindle eBook writers within the internet marketing arena.
After all, publishing on Kindle is a “relatively” easy way to make money – it potentially can become a way to make a vast PASSIVE income for years and years to come.
And there’s no reliance on Google tactics, which will of course come as a huge relief to many marketers who’ve seen their webpages repeatedly dumped by the ever-changing Google search algorithms.
Now, this is not my typical blog post. Its actually WAY out there. But there’s good reason…
I’ve been reading quite a bit about publishing – self-publishing on Kindle. In fact, I’ve been reading quite a lot about all sorts of ways to earn a very good living by working (or not “working” as the case may be, because a lot of online income models are relatively passive). Let me relate to you a few pointers that I’ve learned for myself, and quite honestly – came as a real breath of fresh air to me too!
If you think you can’t write a book then think again!
And I don’t necessarily mean a book of non-fiction.
You don’t have to write how-to books to make a seriously huge income by self-publishing on Kindle – you can write fiction instead.
I see you shaking your head. You don’t believe that you can do that. After all, you are far from a literary genius, and you have to be a literary genius and have an amazing amount of creativity to be able to write fiction successfully.
Let me relate to you a story at this point. And I’ll try not to bore the pants off of ya!
When I was a kid – between the ages of about… 8 and 12… I had this idea that I wanted to become a writer of fiction books.
In fact, when I was 10 years old, I entered a fiction writing competition and won top prize. The main prize was to have my story read out on national radio.
I never heard it being read out, but I was told it was read out, and apparently – potentially – there were millions of listeners. It was BBC Radio 4 which broadcasts in the UK, and abroad as the World Service (or part of the World Service anyhow).
I’ll tell you exactly why I was good at writing fiction in those days – at the age of 10. My sense of creativity had absolutely NO BOUNDS! I was a child and I thought exactly as a child thinks – BOUNDLESS LEVELS OF CREATIVITY!!
But, when I graduated to secondary school, things became much more systematic. English literature classes were structured in such a way as to knock all potential creativity out of you in order that you followed “their” system.
I “graduated” from my English literature class with a C minus, which quite frankly is a thoroughly mediocre result indeed.
And the reason why I graduated with such a pathetically low scoring was that I was being taught to write like a machine, and was being taught to avoid self-creativity at all costs. And there ended my boundless sense of creativity, which quite frankly had the effect of making me a thoroughly mediocre student!
