One of the biggest mistakes authors consistently make is their drive to rush to publish. Rushing without knowing what their flow is really about … they just know they have a book in them. Slow down. Breathe a bit. Listen to your rhythm—does it resemble the Flight of the Bumble Bee, A Hard Day’s Night, or something along the lines of I’ve Got Rhythm, Bolero, I Left My Heart in San Francisco or Louis Armstrong’s What a Wonderful World?
Is it memorable? Does it have legs? Rhythm has flow—everything is connected … you can feel it, you can hear it, and you experience it. Beginner dancers think a lot; when you know the steps, you dance, you instinctively move into and with it. The Art of Authoring and Publishing is no different.
Rhythm has spontaneity to it, usually mixed with a creative flow. For books, rhythm has a synching that occurs between the author and reader. The author starts the lead, the reader follows, trusting the author to take him on a journey that offers pleasure, entertainment or a life-enhancing venture.
