I had decided that positive affirmations were the way go, and henceforth began to write, “I’m going to be a bestselling author” on little slips of paper twenty times a day. The only problem is now I have 5000 slips of positive affirmations, which equates to 35,000 words of text, and no book to become a bestseller off of. Do you have any advice for me?

Dear Author in the Southwest,
In my experience, as an editor, 35,000 words is a novella. Congratulations! You have written a book. Cut the slips of paper up by words or letters, scramble them, glue them onto 5.5 X 8.5 pieces of paper, and then scan them into your computer. If you’d like help in turning your novella into an ebook, please see my fees as laid out here. Writing a book is sometimes difficult, but you’ve ultimately put in the effort, which is all that counts.
Best of luck,
