I wrote for 19 years before I got my first royalty check from a major publisher.
I wrote for 42 years before I became a best-selling author.
All that time, I was writing. I wrote ads, songs, cheers, newspaper articles, short stories, poems, case reports, grant proposals, presentations, marketing copy, and family Christmas letters. Since becoming a radiologist I’ve written and published 36 peer reviewed scientific papers, 7 books and 9 book chapters. I’ve been a reviewer or editor for 17 periodicals.
There is one thing that some writers do that I have never done…
Experience writers block.
Writing can be a muse and for the professional it is self-discipline.
As you read these words that I wrote to you, I am writing my next book and another book chapter and I am teaching my proteges how to become successful writers.
When we master the self-discipline, we celebrate!
My latest book will soon be released! You are invited to celebrate with me!
