Tomorrow is November 1st, which is the first day of National Novel Writing Month or NaNoWriMo.
This is where over 300,000+ writers commit to writing/finishing/starting their novel for the entire month of November. The rules are fairly simple. Write every day. Write at least 50,000 words. You start November 1st and the “competition” ends on November 30th at 11:59pm.
Through the magic of the “internets” I’ve recently been able to re-connect with my high school English teacher. As most of of my friends, students, and colleagues know, I am a high school dropout. I really didn’t impress too many of my teachers back then. In fact, I’m sure most of them wouldn’t even remember my name. I know I wouldn’t have if I were in their position. Out of sight, out of mind.
What is it that you’ve been dying to get done this past year? Is it finally writing that book? Starting that blog? Creating your new online business? Perhaps it’s trying to lose weight or develop new relationships?
It’s January 2015. Time to get that darn thing done.
Ask yourself this question: if you had all the time, money, and resources at your disposal for the next month to finish your top priority, what would that goal or project be?
That’s what you need to be working on now. Stop waiting for the perfect time or opportunity. It doesn’t exist. Start today.
