Upping My Word Count

I have written over 100,000 words this year.  That may not seem a lot to some, but for me it is a big deal.  I have upped my word count this year without even trying.

I have written 11 Episodes of Me VS Zombies  http://mevszombies.blogspot.com.   They are written and ready to be published once a month.  I have them on my dash board and ready to go.  That means that I am ready and have time to write something else.  I have started a new zombie novel.

I plan on having it written in a month.  Something that I have never done before.  Then again I never wrote 11 Episodes in a month either, so anything is possible.

I am going to post my word count here and show my progress.  No matter how low or high the word count is. 

The only way to up my word count is to write.  That is what I am going to do

Writing Tip Number 1

Beleive in yourself.  If you don't believe in yourself no one else will.

No one cares if you write or not.  You need to accept that.  Writing can be loney.  If you believe in yourself.  If you believe in your story, If you believe in your characters, then you can not go wrong.

My First Book  My Bible--My God  www.amazon.com/dp/B006N0ZDGW



My 2nd Book  Always & Forever  www.amazon.com/dp/B006M8PAOA


My 3rd Book

Welcome To Zombie Zoo  www.amazon.com/dp/B008Y5D2DA


Check out all the Episodes at http://zombiezoothebook.blogspot.com

When I started, I had no idea what I was doing.  I learned as I went.  Last year I went 4 months without selling a book.  I kept writing.  I kept Blogging.  I kept tweeting.  Nothing stopped me.  I believe in my writing.  I believe in myself.  I know that is not an easy thing to do.  I don't have that much support.  Sometimes I feel that I am treading water in the middle of the ocean adrift alone.  That is okay.  I will continue to keep writing, cause if I quit I will never know what could of been.

Beleive in  yourself.  Tomorrow is another day and all that good stuff.

There are people out there making a living at writing and selling books.  Why not you?

Don't give up.

This is my New Series  I have published 7 Episodes so far this year and am publishing an Episode a month.  www.amazon.com/dp/B00AZBO6XQ

Check out all the Episodes at http://mevszombies.blogspot.com

You are a write, so get busy writing

Publishing On A Budget

I am publishing a short story a month.  I pay a formaterr  10.00 I have a book cover, I use the same cover and change the title.  It is a series   Me VS Zombies. 



The Subtitles have been changed.  All The Episodes are selling.  I like this book cover and will use it when I put all 12 Episodes into one book.

I know that not everyone will agree with me on using the same cover, but if you are on a budget and writing a series, nothing wrong with using the same cover and changing the title it is working for me.

Don't go into debt while seeing your dream become a reality.

Have a question????  Just ask.  I have 15 E-books self published.  check my other pages on this blog Me VS Zombies and Zombie Zoo The Book  all Episodes are 99 Cents.

I have written over 100,000 words so far this month.  I wrote 11 Episodes so far 7 have been published this year of Me VS Zombies. 

My word count is 5,000 words a week,  That is less than 1,000 words a day.  Write more one day, less another day.  I want to write 10,000 words a week that is my goal to Up my word count

July 1st Episode 8 will be published

100,000 Words In 6 Months

100,000 words might not be a lot to some writers.  It is alot to me. Sitting down to write a full lenght novel is very scary.  Lots of pages.  Lots of words. 

I decided the beginning of the year, to write and publish a story a month.  I have been writing around 10,000 words a month. 

I combined 9 Episodes of Me VS Zombies  http://mevszombies.blogspot.com I have 75,000 words.  I still have 3 more Episodes to publish,  I wrote a full length novel in 6 months. 

If I can do this, so can you.  I started out with a goal, a plan.  I started writing, not looking at the end of the year, but at the end of the month.  Each Episode is around 10,000 words.  When all 12 Episodes are done I will combine all Episodes into one book. 

Welcome to Zombie Zoo I did the same thing, last year.  http://sharonleejohnson.com  www.amazon.com/dp/B008Y5D2DA  http://zombiezoothebook.blogspot.com

I wrote 5 Episodes of Zombie Zoo I then wrote a bonus Episode and combined all Episodes into one book. 

Start out with one story.  Ideas will come, you will find more time to write.  Before you know it, you will have written 100,000 words.  A book is written. 

Leave a Comment and let me know how you are writing 100,000 words. 

Every Word Leads To Another Word

Publishing On A Budget

I am not selling anything.  That is right.  I am not selling anything, except the books I write.

I am here to tell you that you, yes you can get published this month and it will not cost more than $20.00, unless you want to spend more.

I am writing a short story every month till 2015.  My Goal is to get 50 E-books on line by 2015.  I have disconnected my cable.  No TV for me.  That is what was zapping most of my writing time.

1.  I have someone to format my stories for Kindle.  Cost me $10.00

2.  I bought one book cover and am using the same cover for each story in that series.  check out http://mevszombies.blogspot.com  or go to www.amazon.com/author.sharonleejohnson to see all my books  I use the same cover and then change the title.  Total cost for cover $50.00 for 12 title changes.

3.  You do not need a book cover....You can always upload one later. 

4.  In reality all you need is to format your file so you can upload it on Kindle.  You can do this yourself, I have someone do it for me, cause it is only $10.00.  So in reality, if you format the file yourself it will cost you nothing to get published this month.  What are you waiting for???

5.  I am writing a series Me VS Zombies.  I have written another series Zombie Zoo  http://zombiezoothebook.blogspot.com   or http://sharonleejohnspon.com

6  My stories are around 10,000 words each episode  I have Episode 7 out Zombies Changed the Landscape  www.amazon.com/dp/B00D4DLNBA The next one Episode 8 will be out June 28.  I have Episodes 9,10, &11 written and being editted.

7.  I spend all my free time writing.  I consider my writing is my second job, soon to be my only job.  I am a published writer. 

8.  You are the only person stopping you from being published.  It is not the money, or the time.  Give something up that is taking time away from your writing.  Mine was TV.

9.I am all about saving money, remember you are a writer and you might be able to claim it on your taxes and deduct the expenses.  Consult your tax person

10.  Start today and Get Published Today  What is stopping you???

Finding The Time To Write

I came up with a plan.  I am going to write 50 E-Books by the end of 2014.  I have 15 of them published and three being edited.   I have no idea if I will reach the goal of 50, but that is what I am aiming for.

I am publishing one short story a month,  I would like to publish 2 a month, but that is a bit hard, since I have to work a full time job to pay my bills. 

How am I doing this?

1.  I get up early before I go to work.  I write, blog, twitter, facebook

2.  I take a notebook with me to work.  I write when I am waiting to punch that good old time clock.  I write on my lunch and breaks.  I carry the notebook with me, everywhere I go at work, when I have my lunch and breaks.

3.  I discovered that I write best when I first wake up.  On ,my days off, I wake up, go and get me a pepsi and turn the computer on.  I don't do any other tasks.  I write for 3-6 hours before I allow my self to do something else.

4.  I do longer care if my floors have dust bunnies.

5.  I have disconnected my cable.  I no longer have access to TV.  I have DVD's if I need to pop one in now and again.  I find that flipping through channels looking for something to watch is wasting time that I could be writing.

6.  I do not surf the web. When I am on line, it is all about writing, checking e-mails, blog, facebook and twitter, then back to writing. 

7.  I think of my writing as a business not a hobby.  Not something to talk about.  I don't talk about writing.  I write.

8.  Writing is my second job.  I show up to write, everyday, even if I have to write in long hand or make notes.

9.  Writing is not something I do.  Writing is my job.  I carry business cards, with my blogs and website on them.  I am always handing them out.

10.  If you want to lose weight, you make time to work out or walk.  You want to be clean, you take time to take a shower and do your hair.  Think about the amount of time you are in the gym or hair salon, you could be writing.

I gave TV up to write more.  I have given up sleep to get published.  I have given up my social life to write, not that was anything to brag about, anyway, so maybe there I didn't give anything up.  My amin focus in life is writing and for the next two years I am focused on that.  At the end of the two years I am rewarding myself a 2 week trip to Florida. 

So follow me as I write, edit publish and promote 50 E-books.  I will share my ups and downs.  I will let you know when I am selling and when I am not selling.

What are you will to give up to write and see your dreams become a reality?
