The Harry Potter series generated $7.7 billion in sales.

Not bad for some text, right?

On a side note, I actually visited some of the cafes and schools in Lisbon, Portugal that inspired J.K. Rowling and it's like I mentioned yesterday, great writing comes from being inspired by the world around you.

Moving on:

Books aren't the only way to make money as a writer

The words you use to *think* can shape your reality, make you more confident, and even make your wildest dreams come true.

How? By making the effort to be picky about the words you read, speak, and listen to — specifically, by choosing to use words that pick up your mood, make you feel confident, and bring joy to others, instead of language that does the opposite.

All of the words are already out there — it’s up to you to use them.
