Just Do It: Write
But the funny thing is — it’s true. Or better yet, it’s the only way the writing gets done.
So hats off to several people who have, unbeknownst to them, nudged me to get a lot of writing done this week:
- over 4,000 words on my new novel
- 19 days of querying my novels
- in conversation with an agent on a particular story
Hats off to Chris Brogan, marketing genius. I’ve heard much about him, though only today read his post on how he writes over 4,000 words a day that impressed me greatly. Novelists take note!
Also hats off to Bryan Franklin, executive coach extraordinaire, and his brand of just-do-it. I love this post: his notion of just move the ball forward, no need to score a touchdown, all wrapped in magic and sexy dangerous charm.
Lastly, I need to give a huge shout out to the women who lead by example — way different than how men teach. (I notice I don’t often celebrate the women in my life because they don’t stand out as teachers, and it’s because we all teach and learn from each other!)
- Thank you to ALL of my writing colleagues and friends at the San Francisco Romance Writer’s of America chapter. It’s because of your support and example that I was able to get my new novel started on Saturday. That moment of collective brainstorming rocked my world!
- Thank you to Cheryl Liquori, marketing coach, and fellow Breakfast Blogging Club founder. Your spontaneity, playfulness and honesty helped me move the ball forward this afternoon. I’m glad that I called, and that you were nearby. 🙂
Lastly, but not leastly, I give a hats off to myself for doing the hustle and enjoying it!
Question for discussion: (or pick your own!) How are you doing the hustle AND enjoying it? In what way are you moving the ball forward? How you you just writing, just getting it done?
