Tired of being chained down to your computer? Hands hurt from hours of writing? Looking for a way to dramatically increase your hourly word count? Want to write 1,000,000 words a year without breaking a sweat? Sounds a little crazy when you say it out loud. However, this is easier to accomplish than you'd think. Especially when using dictation for all your writing. Dictation has the power to transform your life whether you're writing a novel, short story, blog post, or paper. Whatever the outlet, dictation can help you increase your productivity levels. Over the past two years, I've switched over to dictation, and I went from writing about 250,000 words a year to over a million words. If I really wanted to amp things up, I think I could go even higher! The quickest way to success as a new author is to pump out more quality books on a consistent basis. Many indie novelists try to get a full 100k+ book out every three to six months. Using dictation, you'll be able to hit those goals with ease. You could release something new every month if you really felt inspired. So what's the secret to getting all this done? Well, dictation on its own, while wonderful, won't write your book for you. You still need to build better writing habits and put in the work.

This is what you'd get if The Secret and Conversations with God met Dave Barry at a Jerry Seinfeld concert. A number of good books have been written over the years by people who claim they have channeled the word of God, or in essence, took dictation from a Supreme Being. Conversations with God and A Course in Miracles are in this category. Of course, the Bible is the most prominent example. There are also many books and recordings by people who feel they have received messages from spiritual entities of some sort or another. The Abraham-Hicks material, Jane Roberts, the Seth books, and the Kryon series are good examples here. There's a lot of great wisdom in all of these sources. But, have you ever wondered what would it be like if the Almighty didn't use a go-between to interpret his words? What if God (or some similar all-knowing entity) actually wrote a book himself? What if he (or she) made it fun and accessible to everyday people? And, most importantly, what if this spiritual guide had a playful attitude and a great sense of humor? If all of these things came to pass, what kind of book might the Omnipresent One write? Listen to this powerful little audiobook to find out.... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bob Baker.

The first book in channeler Paul Selig's widely anticipated Mastery Trilogy leads you into an unprecedented journey of self-development, at once building your personal excellence and your ability to improve life for others. The channeled literature of Paul Selig - who receives clairaudient dictation from unseen intellects called the Guides - has quickly become the most important and celebrated expression of channeling since A Course in Miracles rose to prominence in the 1970s. Selig's three previous books - I Am the Word, The Book of Love and Creation, and The Book of Knowing and Worth - have won a growing following around the world for their depth, intimacy, and psychological insight. Now, Selig embarks upon an extraordinary new trilogy on the "Teachings of Mastery" with his inaugural volume: The Book of Mastery. The Book of Mastery provides a deeply practical prescription for heightening your abilities, aptitudes, and sense of personal excellence. The Guides' teachings go much further, however, instructing you how to improve life for others and, ultimately, for global humanity. As the Guides themselves put it: "We will tell you this: No one who reads these books will be left unchanged. They will be like molecular systems that reinvigorate and realign and reclaim the reader to themselves in their worth, in their identity and, beyond that, in their physical realm. Underline physical realm if you like. Because the physical realm that we teach in is about to go back to the stone ages unless you all get it together." 1. Language: English. Narrator: Paul Selig.

Three of the most popular and sought after apocryphal books are now presented in a single volume. The Book of Enoch is quoted by Jude, cited by Peter, and read by the apostles, Enoch (1 Enoch) informs our ideas of angels and demons. The book describes the fall of a group of angels called the Watchers, who took the daughters of men as wives and fathered the Nephilim (Genesis 6: 1-2). Enoch goes on to record amazing visions of heaven and the workings thereof. Enoch is an ancient Jewish religious work, traditionally ascribed to Enoch, the great-grandfather of Noah. It is regarded as canonical by the Ethiopian Orthodox Church. The Book of Jubilees, also known as The Little Genesis and The Apocalypse of Moses, opens with an extraordinary claim of authorship. It is attributed to the very hand of Moses; penned while he was on Mount Sinai, as an angel of God dictated to him regarding those events that transpired from the beginning of the world. The story is written from the viewpoint of the angel and takes place after the exodus of the children of Israel out of Egypt. The setting is atop Mount Sinai, where Moses was summoned by God. The text then unfolds as the angel reveals heaven's viewpoint of history. We are led through the creation of man, Adam's fall from grace, the union of fallen angels and earthly women, the birth of demonic offspring, the cleansing of the earth by flood, and the astonishing claim that man's very nature was somehow changed, bringing about a man with less sinful qualities than his antediluvian counterpart. The story goes on to fill in many details in Israel's history, ending at the point in time when the dictation began on the mount. The Book of Jasher reveals a large quantity of additional information about the period between divine creation and the time of Joshua's leadership over Israel when the Israelites enter into the land of Canaan. 1.

Paradise Lost is an epic poem in blank verse by the 17th-century English poet John Milton (1608-1674). The first version, published in 1667, consisted of ten books with over ten thousand lines of verse. A second edition followed in 1674, arranged into twelve books (in the manner of Virgil's Aeneid) with minor revisions throughout and a note on the versification. It is considered by critics to be Milton's major work, and it helped solidify his reputation as one of the greatest English poets of his time. The poem concerns the Biblical story of the Fall of Man: the temptation of Adam and Eve by the fallen angel Satan and their expulsion from the Garden of Eden. Milton's purpose, stated in Book I, is to 'justify the ways of God to men'. In his introduction to the Penguin edition of Paradise Lost, the Milton scholar John Leonard notes, 'John Milton was nearly sixty when he published Paradise Lost in 1667. [The writer] John Aubrey (1626-97) tells us that the poem was begun in about 1658 and finished in about 1663. But parts were almost certainly written earlier, and its roots lie in Milton's earliest youth.' Leonard speculates that the English Civil War interrupted Milton's earliest attempts to start his 'epic [poem] that would encompass all space and time.' Leonard also notes that Milton 'did not at first plan to write a biblical epic.' Since epics were typically written about heroic kings and queens (and with pagan gods), Milton originally envisioned his epic to be based on a legendary Saxon or British king like the legend of King Arthur. In the 1667 version of Paradise Lost, the poem was divided into ten books. However, in the 1672 edition, Paradise Lost contained twelve books. Having gone totally blind in 1652, Milton wrote Paradise Lost entirely through dictation with the help of amanuenses and friends.
