WHAT GENRE WOULD YOU MOST LIKE TO EXPLORE?
MEMOIRS - tell your inspiring personal story to inspire and enrich the lives of others. Perhaps its your whole story or it may be a passage of time within your story that is particularly relevant to tell. What challenge/s did you overcome? What is the motivation or magic that drives you that others will fall in love with? What are your memories? Maybe you are the guardian of a family member's story that should be told. Can you build a memoir around food ... the secrets of family around a table?
P.S. A memoir is any nonfiction narrative writing based in the author's personal memories. The assertions made in the work are thus understood to be factual.
"Everybody walks past a thousand story ideas every day.
The good writers are the ones who see five or six of them. Most people don’t see any." ORSON SCOTT
WHAT IF THE NEXT BEST-SELLER RESIDES IN YOU?
THERE IS NO WRONG OR RIGHT ... JUST WRITE
TRAVEL STORIES and TRAVEL GUIDE BOOKS - to encourage people to travel and have a meaningful travel experience.
P.S. Keep these quotes in mind. "We travel not to escape life, but for the life in us not to escape us" and, "We don't travel to destinations, destinations call us when we are ready for their lessons."
“And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.” SYLVIA PLATH
PHOTOGRAPHIC JOURNEY - turn your Instagram pages into a meaningful book. We live in a visual world. Instagram has given us a platform to tell our stories in photographs. We post massive amounts of content yet most people will never get to see it. What if you could turn your content into e-books and publish them to earn a profit? Your book just may change someone's life.
P.S. Don't just post photos that disappear fast from the algorithm. Allow your photos to become part of a greater story.

"When your story is ready for rewrite, cut it to the bone. Get rid of every ounce of excess fat. This is going to hurt; revising a story down to the bare essentials is always a little like murdering children, but it must be done.” STEPHEN KING
SELF-HELP and DEVELOPMENT - educative, transformational, philosophical and insightful. What would you like to pass down to the next generation or pass on to the existing generation that will gift them a greater taste of life in their next chapter? Can you write a How To ... book?
HOW WILL YOUR BOOK BEGIN?
WHERE WILL YOUR STORY BE SET?
“People say, ‘What advice do you have for people who want to be writers?’ I say, they don’t really need advice, they know they want to be writers, and they’re gonna do it. Those people who know that they really want to do this and are cut out for it, they know it.” R.L.STINE
WHO IS YOUR AUDIENCE?
WHAT'S YOUR NICHE?
WELL BEING - food, nutrition, exercise, meditation and yoga for the embodiment of good health. What's your good health angle and how can you deliver your message easily and digestible to a global audience.
“Don’t bend; don’t water it down; don’t try to make it logical; don’t edit your own soul according to the fashion. Rather, follow your most intense obsessions mercilessly.” FRANZ KAFKA
