When I started writing this blog I challenged myself to do it every day. I’ve done it every day since I initiated that goal on November 28th, 2017.
106 blogs. 106 consecutive days of writing. Even on Christmas.
When I started I didn’t have any subscribers, now I have 21. I have a closed Facebook group dedicated to this blog with almost 300 members. And, I make $9 a month which pays for a week of black coffees. If you’d like to help me expand that to two weeks of black coffees, click here and become a Heart Hero!
Along the way, I’ve gotten closer with some extraordinary people as they’ve reached out to me and shared what this writing has accomplished. It’s been amazing.
As I journeyed through this process, my goal of simply writing every day formed into a more solid plan of completing another book by using the blogs I’ve written as it’s content. It’s kind of cool because everyone who has been following along has actually been watching a book being written. They just didn’t know it. And truth be told, neither did I!
People often ask me how to write a book and I always think of this…”There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.” In my case it’s sitting down at a Mac. When the desire to write rests within you, allow yourself to write in both ways that are painful and ways that bring life. Your heart’s been shattered. Write about it. Your heart’s been renewed. Write about that too.
I wanted my next book to be at least 200 pages, and it seems that I have not only met that goal but I’ve surpassed it!
So this is my last blog!
Haha! I’m just kidding.
I will also be working on the book that has been sort of put on the shelf (no pun intended) for the last year. “Why I Wanna Hug The Whole World”, my fourth book will follow soon after I’ve completed releasing, “My Blog Book vol. 1: We Shouldn’t Have Met This Soon.”
I will still continue to blog often and, for the most part, daily. Writing is my gift and I do it every day. It brings calm to my heart and peace to my mind. I urge you with all that is in me to do all that is in you. Celebrate DAILY your gifts and the thing or things you love doing. Make room for your dreams and your talents. Your life truly depends on it.
