Saturday morning I was rapping a bit via email with the esteemed Bob Bly, who is one of the most prolific writers I have ever heard of. For example, he’s written 89 full-length nonfiction books for Wiley, McGraw-Hill, and his other NYC publishers (for real publishers, not self published).
Not to mention a slew of other info products.
Countless numbers of ads, sales letters, emails, magalogs, etc.
And, even, a book of short stories.
I told him I haven’t written even a fraction of the content he has.
To which he replied:
“I always wanted to write a novel and have not, so you are way ahead of me in that department!”
Here’s why I bring this up:
Today I started book 5 of my “Enoch Wars” saga of novels.
I wrote the first draft of book 4 last month, am writing book 5 this month, next month will be book 6 and sometime before the end of the year I’ll bang out book 7’s first draft. Then, next year, I’ll edit and release them one-by-one.
And you know what?
If you want to write fiction you can just as easily do the same thing.
All you have to do is write one chapter per day.
In fact, if you want to be appear “lucky” to everyone, simply do this:
For the next 30-days every day you wake up — before you do anything else other than drain the weasel, take your dog out, etc — write one email to sell your product, write one chapter of a novel, and write a section/chapter of an info product.
Do those 3 things right when you wake up.
Do that, and you will see changes happen to your business, your life, and your mindset you can never get buying yet another book on motivation or success, etc.
That’s my challenge to you, my little fledgling.
Are you down for it?
Then get crackin’…
