Writing a Book

Random Observation/Comment #502: It doesn’t feel like work if you love doing it.


As some of you may know, I’m working on a book that I hope to finish by the end of April. It’s a memoir and partial self-help jumble of advice called “My Life in Lists of 30”.

If it wasn’t obvious, I love writing lists of 30. They help me sort out my thoughts and stretch my imagination (the last 5 are always a challenge). I think I’ve been asking better questions and shuffling concepts in my mind more effectively.

Since I already had around 35 lists from the 30 day challenge and miscellaneous overflow, naturally the next step was to put it all together. Writing this book consisted of some reorganizing, grouping, and categorizing. From there, I’ve been writing the clever transitions and fillers to tell the story of my 20’s.

As a sneak preview, here are the high level chapters:

  • A Few of My Favorite Things
  • Writing & Travel
  • Career & Ambitions
  • Making a System that Works
  • Smarter Everyday
  • Day Dreaming
  • Writing for Me and You

As with all things I do, they have a deeper meaning and purpose than what they seem. You bet there’ll be a lessons learned.

Wish me luck!
