Draft Two – Finish, Focus + Follow Up

by sue on December 12, 2011

Once upon a time, I wrote a book. Talk To Me: An Owner’s Guide to Workplace Conversation is a business novel with a workbook component. I had a great deal of fun writing it. I would have published it sooner, except a talented novelist who read Draft One said it was good. That scared me. It raised the stakes. I never got to Draft Two.

Till now.

My personal theme for 2012 is ‘Focus, Finish and Follow up.’ An unpublished book looks like a pretty good place to start.

So, along with seven other writers, I’ve enlisted in Debbie Weil’s eight-week ‘Beta Authors’ project. My objective? “Publish a kick-ass Kindle eBook” by mid February. As someone who’s never kicked anyone anywhere, this is new. It requires bigger thinking, bolder actions and – yikes! – a commitment to the three Fs.

As I wend my way along the path to publication, I’ll post progress reports here. You’ll be my witnesses and, along with Debbie and the Beta Authors, can keep me on the path – or at least on the map – instead of wandering into Distraction Land. Wow! Permission to nag. How often do you get that?
