Episode 083 Show Notes: From Frustrated to Frickin’ Awesome Is Here!

Podcasting host, Alissa Daire Nelson, has exciting news to share today—her first book launches!

From Frustrated to Frickin’ Awesome is literally a four-step process to identify and achieving the success that you’re wired for.

Today we’ll dive into what the process is like to write and publish a book, as well as what the book is all about.

Key Takeaways

  • This book will help you stand up and say, “I’m frickin’ awesome!”
  • This episode will hopefully help you learn from some of the mistakes I made in this book-writing process.
  • Focused time is so important! Use Pomodoros (25 minutes of work time followed by a 5-minute break).
  • No matter what, pad your timeline a bit. You never know what might happen to your process as you go along.

Listen in now!

Time-Stamped Show Highlights

  • [3:19] – The writing process

What ended up working for me is that I would track word count at the beginning and end of each Pomodoro. This allowed me to make really good goals for how much writing I could get done based on the time I had available.

  • [6:11] – The editing process

Find an editor who can take your words and make sure the come across as you sound! Then, consider a second editor who can come in and take an outsider’s view on your manuscript.

  • [8:09] – Self-publishing process

You have to have your book formatted so it becomes a readable book! I also wanted my book to be on Kindle, which has its own formatting needs.

As you’re going through the writing process and submit a final manuscript to your publisher, know that everything takes longer than you expect.
