Today We're Going to Talk About Lightning...
What does lightning have to do with publishing books? A. Lot.
Well, it has a good deal to do with your author mindset. As far as being an author goes, mindset is kind of like putting on a pair of glasses. You can wear rosy ones, blue ones, or super dark nightshades. There are many views you can take on your writing, but here's the catch: you decide which glasses you are wearing.
That's your author mindset.
You Have Choices
The Value of Long-Term
So what does the long-term author mindset have to do with Passive Income?
As a teenager writing a book or series, I encourage you to look at each book as a chance to become a better author. If you do that, and put out quality books, your back list will pile up.
Imagine that you make two dollars a book. Say five books sell every week. Ten dollars may not sound like a lot, but the income is passive. You have already done the work, you never have to write that book again, but you continue to make a little cash every week.
Now imagine that you decide to keep writing. You get better at it, and get better reviews. You have ten books selling every week. Then twenty. You put out quality work, little by little. By the time you're forty you have forty books to your name.
Or you can finish your series and never write another thing. But the income it makes is still yours. For life. Not a bad result from a high school English project
