The modifications and additions from my brainstorming and editorial session with one of my friends are complete. Now that I'm done boasting about myself and writing talents I can write about the items that come a little easier - describing the book, its chapters and my marketing plan and competitive analysis.
I know the three chapters I plan to include in the proposal so the end is finished. I like that...working on the middle knowing finishing the middle completes the proposal.
I'm off to do a wee bit of writing and then to bed early. I either need a good night's sleep or someone to teach me the artistry of applying make-up correctly. A thought I have had often, especially as I look to the future with more speaking engagements to market my book when it is published. I have a couple people in mind. But for now...I'll get some sleep.
Do you have a difficult time multi-tasking when completing a writing project? Or saying "Sorry I can't do that today, I have a deadline to meet." I maximized my writing time and found it surprisingly easy to say those words this week knowing I had an appointment the following week. A new goal: schedule a weekly meeting to go over my writing process with someone. I don't want to waste anyone's time so I'm work a little harder, use my time more efficiently and it gives me permission to say "No" to others.
Yet in saying "No" to others I am saying "Yes" to God in my obedience of writing for Him.
Ephesians 1:18 -20
I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come.
