Well, I'm opening my deck chair in a new direction and it involves setting a goal for writing a book. Yes, you read that right. I am going to spend the next two months of this blog reporting first on setting a goal to have a book finished and in print before the middle of March. Why did I pick that time frame? I'm speaking at A Called Women conference March 24th and I would like to have a book ready to share at that conference. What will be the topic of the book? It will be about discovering your passion, setting goals, visioning the future and achieving the goals you set. I expect writing and publishing the book will be a key example of what I'm writing about!
In my weekly blog, I will keep you informed on the steps and progress that I have made. I'm excited and a little nervous to be announcing this. I've had it in mind for quite some time and being a school counselor, I'm about to have some significant time off for the holidays. So far I've blocked off certain days to spend writing. I've also reviewed all my past blogs and made a spread sheet of different examples and stories with themes. I expect I will be able to use some of this material in the book and I wanted to have it categorized so I could find it easily. Will I be able to stick to my plan and get the book started? Will I be able to get it finished and in print before the conference? Well, I'll be opening my deck chair and facing it in that direction! I'll be keeping you informed of the progress and planning involved.
The next question of course is where are you in the picture? Have you opened your deck chair? Where is it facing for the new year?
Here's a great book to get you thinking about writing and publishing the book you've always dreamed of...
