Let the writing begin . . .

Many people know that I’m an avid “bucket lister.”  The list, which I started 8 years ago, has pushed me to take risks, prioritize, and never lose sight of my passions.  Soon, I will get a chance to check off one of the most daunting items on my list:

#5: Publish a book.

Since September, I’ve been connecting with ASCD and recently got the green light for publication.  Now the exciting (and terrifying) part: Writing the thing.

I’ll drop more details about the scope and intention of the book (hint: It’s a book about positive psychology).  But right now is all about discussing process rather than product.

Through AffectiveLiving and Twitter, I’m going to share my experience with the process of writing  –  not just writing a book, but doing so while balancing full-time teaching, speaking, husbanding, and parenting a wild one-year old.

If you are interested in the process of writing, the struggles of life balance – or are just interested in watching some dude go through a roller-coaster of excitement and self-doubt, I invite you to follow the journey.

Now, if you’ll excuse me I’ve got about 30 minutes left on my son’s “nap clock,” so I better get to work.  Oh, never mind, he just woke up.
