    Question I'm Writing a Book!

    I'll be writing a memoir (like an autobiography, but more interesting!) about my online years and influences, etc. I was wondering if anybody had any questions, or thought this would be a good idea? Let me know your opinions?

    Has anybody else ever written a book of some kind? ;p

    I think it's a great idea if you have alot to write about (thus, experience.) Since when you started to be 'present' on the web?

    And nope, I haven't wrote anything like that. ;p

    I've not written something tangible, but, maybe by December this year, I'd have published my first one.

    If you're looking to publish, take a look @ lulu.com

    I'd be most interested in How you overcome the hurdles being such a young aged entrepreneur, how you manage time, some motivation and as such.
    Build businesses, not quick money makers.

    I'm looking at lulu but not really sure how it all works. I guess I should just get the book written and move on from there, haha. I'm not sure how much of my life versus online life to include. So much material to choose from, haha.

    Here's a little clip from my latest writing:

    I can learn anything. That doesn't mean I'm always good at everything, but I have the capacity to understand the fundamentals of everything in an extremely short amount of time. As well, I remember almost everything (which makes it very hard to remember something), and in that effect, once I do something perfectly, it's ingrained in my mind. With this skill, you would think that I could master just about anything...

    Of course, as with any genius, there is a certain unwillingness to use a gift. “Little Corey” hated going out of her way to learn how to do something from others. As a child, I preferred doing things by simply going at them, and using predominating willpower to achieve tasks. In reality, asking for help is what makes us human. Little Corey preferred to remain outside the status quo. As I've grown older, I utilize the tools at hand to ask for help, both online and offline. I'm always telling people that a “willingness to learn” is essential with any endeavor, and it's true. You have to be willing to ask questions, and to get help from someone smarter than yourself. I know this more than anyone, because I never used to ask questions, and I can just imagine how much smarter I would be if I did.

    Ironically, I often ask questions now that seem to have no particular purpose. Questions such as “can you mail an ear?” or “what is a clean bomb?” that seem to have no real reason for answers. I personally believe that if you ask the right question, and if you get the right answer you'll discover a solution to a problem. How many times in a movie has a wise sage said “that's the right question?” If there's a reason for everything, I want to know what it is.

    Sorry late in giving opinion, but it's already 1 month, how's the book progress? And if it's not published yet, i have some suggestion which hopefully usefull for you :

    - Before published, make sure you let some of famoust figure on internet business read it, and request them to make positive testimonial. And make sure you place the testi in your book

    - Write your URL site in the last page on your book. So if it's sell well, it's not only give you earn, but you'll get new visitor to your site.

    - Make unique cover for your book is also important.
    - The title should get attention also.

    And let me know if the book is already published. I may order it..

    Anyway, i'm not making a book, but i'm writing mhy lifestory in diary (using powerpoint), and i wish it will be published as book when i'm die, and hopefully become inspiration for the other

    It takes longer than a month to write a book dude...for those of you interested, I'll be posting chapters online at http://www.outstandingwriter.com/book. I'll start making posts private, but I wanted people to be able to comment on its progress.

    It's a good start! However, maybe you'll want to make your titles a bit simplier for the next chapters...
