If it’s crazy to try to write a book in less than a week, then call me crazy. It’s fine. I’ve been called worse.
I’m taking a personal challenge to complete a book in three and a half days. I have tons of ideas for novels, whether it’s short stories, slam and my Great American novel. I’ve thought about writing a book detailing how to use social medial to help your small business. Everyday, something new, or a new twist on an old idea, pops up. Yet, I do not have a completed work under my belt. I’m long past overdue to change that.
I was inspired by a webinar, by Kristen Eckstein, which is called, “How to Write a Novel in 3.5 days.” I’m going to use her tips to see if I, the ultimate procrastinator, can conquer this beast. My three days will include Friday, March 10, Saturday, 11th and Sunday, 12. My half will be Monday, 13. I totally recommend signing up to watch her webinar. I was really inspired to try this out, and I think it’ll be a good experience to see how far I can push myself. Sometimes I just need someone to say, “Hey you can do it. Stop with excuses and just do it,” to give me some momentum.
Blame it on timing, adult ADHD, or just a basic fear of failure, I haven’t dedicated the time and energy to finish my book. Sure there’s been some incidents where my computer crashed and then the lastest when my car was robbed, my two jump drives were in that bag. *Note to self- Do NOT store the backup data disk with the original. This will backfire, and subsequently bite you in the ass.* The only way to change this, is to…well…change it. Stick my butt in my chair, in front of my pretty purple notebook, and getting it done.
So, wish me good luck and I’ll tell you how it went on Tuesday!
