Yep. I’m talking to you.

If you’re ever going to get to where you want to be, you need to be writing.

Why?

Because when you write, you share your ideas, hone your skills, and build a body of work.

A body of work that allows you to build an audience over time. An audience that shares the same goals and interests as you.

These interests create conversations and you become a likable expert.

And if you make mistakes—good! Mistakes allow you to learn.

Mistakes are essential to being an indie artist.

And although you know this to be true—you shut down. Boo!

Stop wasting that makeshift brilliance inside of you.

You know you have it. It’s the way you think about the things you’re passionate about. Transfer that enthusiasm to others.

Stop being a jerk. Stop sabotaging yourself.

You know what you need to do. Now do it.

Focus.

Write.

After all there are plenty o’ ways to keep in touch already. So why, oh, why would you want to bother with an email newsletter?

Starting a blog can feel a lot like those old western films.

Tumbleweed blows by what looks like deserted posts.

Where is everybody? Anyone?

Unfortunately, build it and they will come does not pertain to a blog. Regardless of what some people would have you believe.

The truth is a blog is hard work. And building a community around it even harder.

So what do you to get some response?

If a tree falls in the woods and there’s no one there to hear it, does it make a sound?

If an artist creates art and there’s no one to see it, does it exist?

Sure the art exists for the artist, but it’s the audience that really helps bring the work to life. And without an audience how can an artist ever create a sustainable lifestyle?

So where does one begin to develop this audience?
