095: "Who am I to write a book?"

Have you ever thought that it would be cool to write a book, but it feels presumptuous or weird or self-indulgent to do that? Well, that’s exactly what we are going to discuss on today’s episode of Indie Author Weekly. This is the podcast for indie authors, aspiring authors, and curious bookworms who want the inside scoop, tips and motivation, and behind-the-scenes journey of writing and self-publishing books.  Today's topic is inspired by a conversation I saw on Twitter last month, when someone said something along the lines of, “I like the idea of writing and publishing a book, but it feels presumptuous." There ended up being a thread of other people chiming in who agreed that they wanted to write and publish books, but they haven’t done it yet, because they felt like it would be conceited if they did it.  This line of thinking is SO COMMON. Honestly, sometimes, yeah, it feels weird to write a book! You might have imposter syndrome. You might think: "Who am I to write this book? Why would anyone care about what I have to say? This is too indulgent. This is narcissistic."  Does that sound familiar for you? You aren’t alone if you have self-doubts about it.  TUNE IN to this episode to find out how to deal with this!Resources & links mentioned in this episode:  Get podcast and book updates delivered to your inbox at SaganMorrow.com/behindthescenes .Learn more about all of Sagan's books at SaganMorrow.com/books .Get more focused and disciplined with Productivity Powerhouse at SaganMorrow.com/powerhouse .Tune into Indie Author Weekly on your favourite podcast platform at SaganMorrow.com/podcast .Subscribe, rate and review this podcast on Apple Podcasts .Let's chat about this episode: @Saganlives on Twitter and Instagram .Hashtag: #IndieAuthorWeekly .Email hello@saganmorrow.com .Share your thoughts (or submit requests for future episode topics) in this survey at SaganMorrow.com/question Support the show (https://saganmorrow.com/secretpodcast)
