I have been working on a writing project that just can’t seem to launch.
Or, let me re-phrase that:
I have been working on a writing project that I can’t seem to launch.
Jennifer and I have been talking about it and she’s given me exercises to do.
Make a calendar.
Break it up into manageable bites.
Plan a celebration for the end.
Today it started. Today I worked 3 hours on it. I am committed to 3 hours of intense, focused work every weekday. I am taking weekends and vacations off. The 3 hours-a-day might need to be scaled back to 2 hours, but for now I am going to work on building some “focus” muscle.
I will have a finished book by September 1st. I will have finished all the writing before we go to Rehoboth the first week of August. The month of August will be devoted to squiring it through Create Space.
I have calendar-ed it all out. I have created distraction strategies, and today I sat down in my Space Chair at 9 on the dot and wrote until noon.
I am going to use this blog to chronicle my trials and tribulations and the “meta” of what it means to commit to a writing project and see it all the way through to the end.
The working title of this book is called “Amp Your Vibe” and it describes a strategy for figuring out what you want to be when you grow up,– regardless of your age, –by creating projects that will maximize your full human potential.
Blogging about my process is part of my strategy for getting it done. My consistency muscle has been strengthened by blogging here every day, so I’m going to use it to get this damn project done –and shipped.
Don’t believe me, just watch.
