Making-of The Mini-Guide for Writing a Super Complete Post in 20 Minutes

I created my first successful product in just 10 days. I realized the creation process is as valuable as the product itself and I want to share it. Welcome to the Making-of The Mini-Guide for Writing a Super Complete Post in 20 Minutes. ❤

I’ll start a new serie on my blog, it’s the Making-of The Mini-Guide! (All the chapters will be here).

Creating a product is hard, this is why the process is as valuable as the product itself. I learned a lot from the process of creating as I did while I created the system that helps me blog in 20 minutes (the one I talk about in The Mini-Guide).

I want to share the making-of, the behind the scenes, because I think the future me will need to remember fears are overcomeable and I overcame my fears once, I can do it, again. Also, this was my first time creating a successful product. Successful in my own definition, of course. This was the first time I worked with a plan and through that plan.

I managed to decide, create, write, design, edit, publish and market The Mini-Guide for Writing a Super Complete Post in 20 Minutes in just 10 days. Those were the more amazing 10 days of this semester, I learned a lot, did a lot and wrote a lot.

The Mini-Guide and the making-of are made in San Salvador. In a small town named Mejicanos, in my apartment, the one I’ve been living forever, in a 15m² room. In our world, it seems like you need to have big places and luxurious stuff to make it happen. But I’m gladly to say that is far from the truth, the only big things you need to make it happen are ideas, desire to work and heart.

I’m gonna share exactly what happened while I was creating The Mini-Guide. The creation process might help you to create your product or even realize you want to create a product. I really don’t know if this series will help you or not, but I know it will help myself. I have this desire of sharing the process of creation because I feel there were so many myths that even stopped the Katherine of the past, but while I was living those 10 days, I was able to erase every one of the myths and create, not just my product, but a new chapter in my life.

Do you want to know if I accomplish all my goals when I created The Mini-Guide? Yes, I did! I wrote in paper 3 personal goals and 1 product goal, and all were accomplished!

I don’t want to share those goals (or maybe I just don’t want yet) because I don’t want you to feel pressured to take those same goals and try to make them. That’s not healthy. You should write your own purposes and then make those happen. Never edit your life to make it seem like the ones you read, always embrace yours.

This serie will take a few chapters, between 5 or 10. I’m counting on sharing everything based on the pictures I took on those 10 days. I want this Making-of to be the most authentic in every way, the words, the pictures, the videos and the learning need to come of those 10 days only.

The Mini-Guide for Writing a Super Complete Post in 20 Minutes was created under the Small Product Lab July 2015 hosted by Gumroad. I’m forever grateful with Gumroad and Small Product Lab for those 10 days.
