Becoming a self-published author can be a difficult journey. Just having finished a manuscript is not enough you'll need three important qualities to turn your book into a great success.
Becoming an author is a courageous act. You need to be confident that people are going to want to listen to what you've got to say. You have to be persistent like you've never been persistent before and you have to be creative when it comes to marketing your work. To become a successful self-published author you'll need these three important qualities: courage, confidence and persistence.
So you want to write a book or you've already done so. You would have already been aware of the need to edit and proof read your manuscript. If you are going down the self-publishing road you are going to have to be diligent about editing and all the other bits and pieces. However, experience has taught many new authors that it is important that you develop the important qualities of courage, confidence and persistence so that you are a success.
According to Nadel Paris the first thing you will need is courage. This is definitely true when it comes time to publish your work. Writing is a double edge sword at times. When you are furiously tapping away at the keyboard for hours at a time you're on your own. It is essentially a very private activity where you develop an intimacy between you and your characters. You share their pain and joy as you put them into situations and then get them out again. Even if you are sharing your work on social media platforms for the most part, writing is a one person activity.
However, publishing your manuscript into a book or eBook means that the whole world is going to see what you've written. It's like putting your personal thoughts and feelings on display and you have no control over what people may say or think about your work. This is where you are going to need courage. You need nerve, pluck and daring to showcase your writing talent. You should be proud that you've taken the plunge and decided to become a writer. Once you are published you are an author and that's a big thing! Be courageous and be proud!
Secondly, your confidence will come and go. It's a bit like sunshine in spring. At times it will feel like it is bursting out of you and at others you will need everything bit of resolve to muster it up so you can complete the smallest task. However, you will to have a certain amount of conviction in your work because as a self-published author you are going to need to market your book yourself. This will mean contacting radio stations, blogs and other avenues to promote your book. You will need to pick up the phone and stand in the doorway of bookstores, for example. However, if you feel your confidence waning go back and read what you've written. It's good isn't it? It's worth sharing with the world isn't it? Well then, off you go and promote it.
Don't' be down hearted if the first attempts at promoting your book don't lead anywhere. Thirdly, persistence is the key. You will need to suffer setbacks and rejections. Understand that there are thousands of books published each week and finding yours is like searching for the good old needle in the haystack. However, if you are tenacious and diligent you will get noticed and you will sell your book. Most of all it is important to enjoy the journey. If you can't enjoy it then you might need to find something else to do. If you learn to enjoy talking about your book, writing about your book and sharing your book with anyone who will listen and you can combine courage, confidence and persistence then you're on the right track to becoming a successful self-published author.

Childhood obesity is already a very serious and disturbing problem in the United States of America and many parts of Europe where obesity in general is increasing. The problem looks set to spread to other parts of the world as their standard of living improves. A diet with a high fat, sugar and salt intake and a sedentary lifestyle have all been major contributing factors in childhood obesity. As a result children are getting Type 2 diabetes and other illnesses usually associated with middle age. We have a generation of children who may well die before their parents.
It seems that the present generation is no longer keen on traditional competitive team games. Modern technology has led to children wanting to entertain themselves and to be personally in charge of the activity. Television and computer games loom large in their lives.
Overweight and obese children need to follow a strict weight loss regime and take increased exercise to help burn up the calories. The difficulty is that children who have a problem with their weight don't enjoy the changes in their eating habits and are unenthusiastic about exercise. Cajoling, bribery, and threats do not work. The trick is to find an activity which burns calories but is not necessarily immediately seen as exercise. It also needs to be interesting and fun. This is where dance comes into its' own as a calorie burning aerobic form of exercise.
Dance, partially due to television shows, is now the "in" way to exercise. Increasing numbers of people are using dance workouts as a way of exercising. You don't need to be a great dancer to enjoy the health benefits of dancing. The main purpose is to enjoy moving to music and music plays a large role in young peoples’ lives these days
Dancing can be a really good Mind-Body-Spirit workout. Physical activity in general keeps body and brain healthy by increasing the amounts of brain chemicals that encourage nerve cells to grow. Dance helps people of all ages and physical limitations to get and stay in shape. There is chair and wheelchair dancing for people (including children) who have mobility difficulties.
The benefits of dancing are the same as other low-impact weight bearing activities such as walking fast, cycling or aerobics. This form of exercise also strengthens bones and muscles without stressing the joints. It tones the whole body and improves posture and balance. There is an increase in stamina and flexibility and a reduction in stress and tension which are often a problem for overweight children.
There are numerous forms of dance which may appeal to children and which could help in the battle against childhood obesity
Hip Hop and Capoeira are two dance forms which children may find appealing. Capoeira is a Brazilian hybrid dance and martial art. Cardio Capoeira is very challenging indeed. An exercise session involves heavy sparring (i.e dancing) that can be done either solo or with a partner. It involves a lot of kicking, spinning and cartwheels. In this workout the buttocks, quadriceps and hamstrings are really exercised due to the multiple repetitions of a deep side-to-side lunge which links one capoeira movement to the next.
Cardio Salsa is a low-impact but high intensity workout combining prcise, fast-paced Latin choreography - merengue, mambo, cha-cha, samba - with traditional aerobic dance steps (such as the grapevine), repeated lunges, and arm raises. The great advantage of this exercise programme is that what is learned can be practised on the dance floor. Knowing the steps and being able to move to complex rhythms is likely to increase self-confidence and poise.
Masala Bhangra, is a challenging workout, based on the traditional folk dance of India. It involves a choreographed series of hops; foot stomping and hip gyrations accompanied by hip-hop influenced bhangra music and live drumming. Most moves are performed while vigorously shaking the arms at 45 degree angles to the side of the body and doing multiple, rapid-fire shoulder raises. This form of dance workout results in firm arms and sculpted shoulders. The same sorts of classes are also known as Bhangra Aerobics.
Some states in the U.S are already using it as a regular part of their physical education curriculum. Dance Dance Revolution offers exercise without children having to possess the skills demanded by sport and games. As a result it appeals to children across the board.
Well, Parents do take medical advice before putting your overweight child on a diet and exercise programme.

Finding the best music teacher is the best way to learn an instrument. In fact, the best way to learn anything in life is to find a tutor of your chosen subject and to take on the task head on - to learn from actually doing.
People say that you learn from your mistakes - partly true due to the fact you end up knowing what not to do. But Nadel Paris (a Musician) believes there is a key point missed here - at least you are actually doing something.
A teacher is someone to show you the path, the 'light at the end of the tunnel'. At the end of the day they know what they are doing and talking about - you probably don't - and it's because of this, the fact that you put all of your trust into your teacher, that you should be very careful about ensuring the one you choose is up for the job.
Here is some advice on choosing your teacher
It is essential that your teacher has experience in two specific areas - performing music and teaching music. It is important that your music teacher is actually a musician - the best example can give is this - imagine that instead of learning an instrument you want to learn how to scuba dive. Would you let yourself be taught by someone who has studied diving from a book but who has never actually been under the water?
If your teacher shows that he has performed music it gives you some guarantee that they are of a high enough standard musically - chances are they wouldn't have been hired if they couldn't play their instrument.
The second is teaching experience.
After discussing how it is important for your teacher to have actually been, or still is involved in music it is also important that they have experience in teaching music. Teaching is a completely different art to performing. Most musicians tell me that they learn more through teaching than they do from any other source - when you teach you instantly reveal your own weak points.
The opposite of this is true as well actually - how many times have you heard someone who recently passed their driving test say you don't learn how to drive until you’re out on the road on your own - after your lessons and test so - make sure your teacher is both a musician and a teacher.
Attitude and Personality
It is fairly common for people to ask for character references - estate agents, employers - most people looking to hire someone - this is also true for finding a music teacher as at the end of the day you are hiring them to teach you.

A perception exists that performing and practicing music are two different activities. It is true that learning the basics of music is an exercise which is highly important and without this, true performing cannot be undertaken to the highest ability. However, the relationship between performing and practicing is deeply intertwined and at a certain level the distinction between the two virtually disappears.
At a certain stage in an individual’s musical career, practicing morphs rather than using them as a learning experience will prepare the performer for the performance. It is at this point, that performing becomes a larger learning experience.
There are countless reasons for this. One reason is that the aspect of performing will give the performer a great energy kick that is experienced when performing to a live audience. The performer can feel the energy of the audience, which enables the performer to reach new heights of artistic achievement.
Nadel Paris believes that once the performer has experienced the thrill of performing for a live audience, that thrill then becomes apparent in every practice session which follows and the energy of the live performance. The true aim of developing mechanical and musical ability will become evident and the focus in practice sessions will be changed. It is at this point that performing really becomes the true learning experience and every practice session becomes preparation to concentrate and enhance that experience. This will certainly mark the difference between musician and artist.
The artists will easily find new ways in which to practice and bring live performances closer to the pure pleasure of musical expressions in every way. The performer will bring different and assorted disciplines such as psychology, exercise kinesiology and acoustics along with other artistic disciplines such as theater and dance into the practice session in order to develop new areas of experimentation.
By doing this the artist-musician will achieve greater control of the instrument in which they are playing when it comes to their overall performance. The artist will also find new ideas and ways of practicing. There will be a gradual transformation of the musician in a creative and fulfilling way so that it optimizes the live performances before an audience.
The true transformation from musician to artist is this, and during this combination the artist will surely be able to develop and find personal, unique and creative techniques of expression. As these progresses, the artist will become to realize that their concentration is largely improved along with ease of performance and a greater synchronicity of body, mind and "soul" as professional musicians like to call it.
To some individuals, this may sound complicated. However, music is something which an artist enjoys. Practicing is in effect, playing music, which a musician should always enjoy for his own personal sake. Practicing will transform into a more rewarding and fulfilling experience and one of the most important steps in reaching such heights of artistic achievement will be reached.

One of the qualities of a good female vocalist is having the ability to write her own songs. And writing good songs comes from a good inspiration. This inspiration can come from a wide range of personal experiences. It can come from love or hurt or a new experience. Singers can also be inspired by other much experienced singers or by their peers. These can keep a vocalist inspired not only in singing but also in song writing. In writing songs or even in singing, a female singer must not imitate or copy other people's style. Inspiration is important, but originality can make a female vocalist successful in her career.
One way to keep a female vocalist inspired, not only in writing songs but also in singing is to travel. It can widen the perspective of a female vocalist. It can also provide new experiences for her. Travelling is also a great way to break routine, so it can bring some fresh ideas to a person. There are many places to go that are inspiring. The beach is the easiest to go to. If you do not have the budget to travel, you can view different places through the internet. Having a new experience puts fresh ideas and new ways for a singer to sing and write her own songs.
Another inspiration for a female vocalist is personal experiences. This includes what she has learned over the years. Her experiences can be happy or sad. It can be the time her heart got broken or when she found a new love. It can also be about the hardships she had through life and how she overcame that situation. A female singer can be inspired by places she went to and the people she met. She can also be inspired by other great young singers. By looking at other people's work, she can get inspired on what works and what does not. A vocalist just has to make sure that she don't copy or imitate other people's work. A singer can also turn to her peers or her friends for some inspiring stories. Different people have same experiences but different perspectives and feelings about that experience. This new perspective of your friend can give an idea into writing a song.
Beautiful things like art, nature and photographs can easily inspire a female vocalist. Being struck by beauty is a wonderful feeling and it can get anybody to do something creative. There are a lot of beautiful things around us. A singer can look not only at other singers or songs for inspiration. Art work and other creative endeavors serve as great inspirations. A singer can go to museums to look at great paintings and art, or a photo gallery for stunning pictures. A flower garden is also a good place to look for beautiful things. Colorful flowers are real beauties and they can be a good source of inspiration.
There are a lot of inspiring moments that can motivate a female vocalist into writing songs. Don't let stress or fatigue hinder you in getting inspired. Also, don't let looking for inspiration be a hard task for you. Sometimes, you just need to take a step back, or get a new perspective to be inspired. Singing is a vocalist's way of being creative. Being inspired is very precious for a singer. It helps her sing with deeper expression. By singing well, she can also inspire others especially if she gets a positive message across. Even a young female vocalist can be a good source of inspiration today especially if she creates her own music.
