am I good enough? am I worthy enough? do I have a story to tell? what’s the best way to tell it? how would I market it? but how do I design the cover? how do I put it on Amazon? I can’t work out whether it’s a memoir or self help… do people even need to hear my story? do I have anything to contribute? who am I to write a book? what if writing a book is too hard? I don’t have enough time to write a book… I have too many children to be able to write a book… I have a full time job so I can’t write a book… I have chronic illness so I can’t write a book… I can’t spell very well so I can’t write a book… yeah but writing a book is really hard isn’t it? how do I get a publishing deal?
and on and on and on… the questions, the wondering, the excuses, the fucking around…
it takes SO LONG. it takes SO MUCH ENERGY.
and in the meantime, you could just be writing your book.
As Douglas Adams says: “It takes an awful lot of time to NOT write your book.”
Just write your damn book already.
The world needs it.
And most of all… YOU NEED IT.
Books heal the hands they move through first and foremost.
Whenever you get bombarded with excuses and questions… just remember… your only job right now is to write your fucking book. The rest, you work out later.
And of course, if you want extra love and support to write your book in 40 days, there’s my e-course too.
But mostly… this is just an ode to the magnificent creative power of just writing your book. We need your book. You need your book. Writing can change this world.
