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.
