What Dave Trott writes, people read. So, when I came up with the idea of writing my own book, being an idealistic sort, I thought it would be good to be published by the same people who publish him. Of course, it doesn’t work like that.
Writing a book is easy. The actual writing. It’s nothing. OK. Maybe not nothing. Maybe it’s like 1% of the whole insane process that is known as ‘a book.’ People think the writing is hard. It’s not. What’s hard is coming up with the ideas.
Trying to explain what copywriting is all about to someone outside of marketing and advertising is no easy thing. I help people sell things…with words. How’s that, people wonder? Well, it’s kind of weird…
An entire wall of our front room is covered in books. There are books on the shelves of our bedroom. There are books in our kitchen. There are even books in our downstairs toilet. So, to have a book of my own being properly published is a great feeling.
