DOING WHAT IN A MONTH?
ARE YOU CRAZY?
You’re thinking about signing up for one of those writing challenges where you write a boat load of fiction in a month: StoryADay.org, NaNoWriMo, ScriptFrenzy, Poem ADay etc. You want to make your writing a priority and this seems like just the thing to push you ahead. You know you’ll be happier – possibly saner – if you do.
SO, WHY ARE YOU STALLING?
Because it’s scary, that’s why!
To succeed with your writing you’re going to have to make changes, take action, wrestle with writer’s block, and convince the people in your life that yes, it’s worth putting in this much effort for something that makes you happy, even if no-one has paid you to do it…yet.
Taking action is always hard, whether it’s making a sales call or leaping off the dock into the cool blue water.
BUT taking action becomes much, much easier if you have:
- A clear picture of how this could rock your world (for the better)
- A mentor or role models who show you that this really can be done
- A toolkit and map to keep you on track after you’ve taken that first big step.
I want you to take 30 minutes, all at once, in a quiet place. Go through this worksheet. It’s going to help you figure out:
WHY YOU WANT TO SIGN UP FOR THIS CRAZY CREATIVE CHALLENGE
…and what might happen if you do. You’re going to be allowed to admit your biggest dreams and have fun with them. And you’re going to find out that even ‘failing’ can be a Good Thing.
