Book writing plans still going forward, just trying to find the right 'help' or team that I feel can work with, and that's not easy, cause everyone has their own intent, but if their intent isn't to help me to prosper, than I've learned all I'm doing is paying their bills for them.
I need a team, or skilled individual that realizes I'd be there bread and butter, if only they get me over that first hurdle of getting book published.
That one older guy, who wants me to get skype and all, who has more of a classroom approach to it, not feeling good about them right now, he seems like the type that would just want to syphon money from me to tell me stuff I already know.
To write your book, you're going to have to basically do it yourself, or pay outlandish fees for minimal help.
Other than that, unless in college, no one will help you, unless already have a friend into writing, or even a family member willing to help, otherwise you're on your own, like with most things in life, you're on your own, and trial and error will be your companion.
People are just average, most are below average when it comes to seeing potential in others, most don't realize if you help another, it's the same as helping yourself, most people just lack that 'department' inside of them...it's weird how hollow most are on the inside.
Or at least those I come in contact with are.
Basically write, send it in, if not good they'll bounce it back, than you fix it, send it back in, and continue until wherever you're sending it accepts final copy.
I mean what else can you do?, trial and error is about the only way to learn or get better.
also learning, finding good help, a better quality of 'people' in general, depends on where you place your add at.
Most, at least from my tech generation, just automatically still think Craigslist is best place, mainly cause it's cheap, but it's not.
When run any kind of adds on C/L here all you basically get anymore.
1. criminals, scammers, from all nations and nationalities.
2. Cops, pretending to be criminals or other 'bait' to snare you with
3. People looking for 'sex', or quick hook ups. These types always think you're using 'coded language', either for sex or drugs or some other 'shady stuff'.
So if you run add saying you need a 'writing coach', in their minds that's coded language, and they think you're really saying 'I need a sex coach'...ect.
It's why their interests fiz out real quick when they learn indeed you're on the up and up.
I'm learning, today, that where you place any add really does matter, and C/L not a good place anymore, but instead 'journals', even print journals, even News paper's still, adds read by real people not on a computer. Even topic specific magazines, yes can cost a lot more, but circulation is wide and near forever, in that old copies of magazines read everywhere and go back for years, even decades, end up in libraries and more.
So the next add I run about anything, I think I'll try a different approach other than the gutter known as C/L.
For sports, sports Illustrated, for tech stuff, a science magazine, and so forth.
Sad truth is, and research backs this up, but the internet has really just made a lot of peoples lives way more lonlier, especially if single.
a 'like' on FB cannot replace a real life hug, ever.
