It may never be "the right time" to write your novel, story, or memoir. Take the 10 Days of Beautiful Failure Challenge, and embrace the possibility of failing with purpose.“There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.”
― Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist
The problem: You're waiting until "the time is right" to begin your writing project, or to commit once again to an abandoned project. So often, we tell ourselves that next week or next month our schedule will have cleared, and we'll be able to start that novel, or return to the manuscript we've stuffed away in a drawer, or send out that story to literary magazines, or start that blog-to-book project. But one's schedule rarely clears up. There is always a new task to complete, a new fire to put out.
The importance of action: When we do, we sometimes fail, but failure can lead to amazing creative breakthroughs. When we do nothing, we go nowhere. When we act, we give ourselves permission to fail beautifully.
The solution: For ten days, I'm going to ask you to put aside your fear of not doing something well, and to simply BEGIN. It's okay to fail. It's not okay to put a dream aside indefinitely because you're afraid you won't succeed. When you sign up for this challenge, you'll receive an email each morning with a challenge to help you take action in your writing life. This 10-day challenge also features videos and a blog where you can share your stories.
How much does it cost? The 10 Day email challenge is free. Just enter the number 0 in the "name a price" box, hit subscribe, and enter your email address on the following screen. Or, if you think this challenge is just what the doctor ordered, pay what you wish.
When does it start? You'll receive a welcome email today, and your 10-day challenge will begin tomorrow.
