E-books…More than Merely Words

I make no secret that I see the e-book format as an art form in and of itself. It’s not just words on a page or haphazard works and neither is any type of authorship. It is planning, perseverance, dedication and trying to perfect your work. People who are serious about any art form will pursue their art. An artist or author will take pride in their art form. They will put everything they have into what they create.

There will be those who think it is a joke or will doubt their ability to progress to having a readership. There are always people who will be critics. The trick is to continue despite lack of interest, lack of popularity. Those are the tough days when you are working on becoming. No one starts out with a following or people interested in their work. Family may show some interest, but it is only your own work and your own progress that will get you a wider audience. For some it never happens. The bottom line for any artist is that they create because they must. It is their life breath. Whether they create while working, create when retired, or create when underemployed, they create.

Another group are those who create to supplement income. I see it often. They have a website with courses that they charge for, they put out an e-book to try to garner more customers. It is a form of creation. Perhaps they have a talent for writing. Most often they come to understand it is not a get rich quick method. Some it is a giveaway to get traffic to their sites. These tend not to be long term though some do tend to turn toward the art form as it awakens something in their lives.

When it is your art form, you put every effort into putting forth something unusual, something beautiful, something that feeds your soul and those of others. It is important on that basis, to work toward being the best you can be. Proofreading is imperative. Putting up work that is as professional as possible is imperative. I have found that control over every aspect and the transfer of my e-books into EPUB has made it possible for me to create a better e-book. As I go forward, I find myself learning more and doing more. I might not be everything that I could be yet, but I keep working on it.

Be Realistically Unrealistic and do the best quality work you can do and continue to learn and improve. In life, no matter what you do, this will improve your chances of being successful.
