What were you working on while the top ten authors on Amazon wrote their book?

What were you doing when Hugh Howey wrote Wool? What were you doing on 1st June 2011 when he published the first three chapters on his blog (http://www.hughhowey.com/wool/)? He was working hard to make his dreams come true. Did you do the same?

I know I was reading, writing, and enjoying good wine. After reading those three chapters from Wool, my love for the story was mixed with the frightening perceived difference in quality between Hugh’s writing and my feeble attempts to a short story.

I remember that night because one of my friends, a chef to a famous restaurant, had invited us for a private tasting of wines. In the taxi, with my eyes mirroring the lights of the city, sentences from Enchantment – Guy Kawasaki were giving shape to future decisions. I look back and realize I was doing things that moved me forward. It wasn’t as much about a direction as it was about action.

What are you doing this year, month, day? Are you writing? Because if you’re not working hard to make your dreams come true nobody will care in five years from now what you did today.

Start writing now… or you can spend your time on the couch watching movies based on other people’s books.
