April 11, 2022
Dictating a book can be a great way to get your ideas down quickly, but it's important to make sure you have a good system in place. Make sure you have a way to transcribe your dictation, and that you're comfortable with the way you're speaking. It's also important to keep in mind that you'll need to edit your work, so don't worry too much about perfection. Rejection is a part of writing, but there are ways to make it less painful.
