I read our entire book called $uccess, Your Path to a Successful Book all over again when I received my published copy 3 days ago. Instead of reading like a writer or editor, I read it like a consumer, hoping not to find any errors. Instead, I only wished I had added more. The Hill team learns something new every day.
We practice what we advise. See chapter IV, the Hill Team Hints… “Keep learning”… We all attended writer’s workshops, in Las Vegas and Mexico, recently, and will be conducting new classes (memoirs and fiction) next week.
The tip I am adding is to stretch. It would have been easier to write a book that is comfortable for us–chefs, food, travel. Instead, we took the advise of a mentor and friends and upped our learning curve. This new writing venture has led back, or rather forward, to many more food and wine endeavors, a television appearance and teaching and travel opportunities.
At Rancho La Puerta, I re-learned to stretch my body and my mind. After stretching and hiking up a (small) mountain, I ate organic food straight from the garden, even garlic! Then, I participated in a class on a subject that was completely new and different, a stretching experience.
