TL Conference Delegate Laxmi Hariharan‘s recent blog post about TLC’s Writing in a Digital Age conference was picked up by the Huffington Post this morning. As a self-published author herself, Laxmi’s article focuses in particular on the session with bestselling self-published author Robert Kroese. Laxmi writes, “Rob @robkroese is funny, genuine and as one of my fellow delegates commented, “he is one of us”. He likens the league of published authors to an elite night club, with gatekeepers, who decide who gets in and who does not. It struck a chord with me, and I suspect with many of the other ‘waiting to be discovered’ wannabes.”
Laxmi has put together her own quiz with ten points inspired by Robert Kroese’s self-publishing masterclass.
1. Do you want to be discovered or somewhere along the way have you discovered yourself?
2. Do you write to be published or do you write to be read?
3. Are you an entrepreneur, at heart? Do you normally jump in and think of the consequences later. Are you pragmatic about failure–enough to pick yourself up and move on swiftly to the next?
4.Do you like to experiment, and cannot resist a challenge? Do you thrive under pressure, and when the odds are stacked against you?
5.Are you impatient, probably a control freak? In fact, you want to control your own destiny, so keep checking in with the stars to find out what’s going to happen in your life, so you can steer it the way you want.
