How to go from taking a 3-day course to becoming a successful author.
As I prepare for the Harvard CME publishing course this year, I am reviewing "success stories" to present to the attendees. What the attendees will want to know is "how to go from taking a 3-day course to becoming a successful author".
If you are wondering the same thing, consider this piece of advice that makes writing incredibly powerful: Show, Don't Tell. What this means is that while it's helpful to have an explanation, sometimes the thing that helps the most is giving a specific example.
In this post, I want to "Show" interested readers some of the success stories. The best way to do this is to take you to the websites of the successful past course attendees. There have been so many, that it's hard to choose which ones to highlight. Nevertheless, here are a few examples of past course attendees who have gone on to do amazing things with their writing:
- Richard Baer, MD (www.SwitchingTime.com)
- Paul Ruggieri, MD, FACS (www.PaulRuggieri.com)
- Jill Grimes, MD (www.JillGrimesMD.com)
- Loron Olson, MD (www.MagneticFire.com)
- Diane Radford, MD (www.DianeRadford.com)
Of course, not everyone who comes to the Harvard publishing course is a medical doctor. There are many others in healthcare who attend and go on to become successful authors. Here are a couple of examples:
As you look at these websites, you'll be able to decipher a lot of information about who these writers are and what they've been able to accomplish. The websites don't tell everything, but they offer terrific examples of how to become a successful physician author!
