It’s Launch Day!

Today is the big day!  As I mentioned the other night, I volunteered for and was chosen to be on the launch team for an amazing new e-book called, “@Wrimo: A 30-Day Survival Guide for Writers” by Kevin S. Kaiser.  This wonderful (and I do mean wonderful!) short book contains thirty inspirational snippets and motivational musings to keep writers moving throughout National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo).  NaNoWriMo is new to me this year, and I have so many concerns and worries about participating (see here if you need a refresher).  Those doubts are pervasive.  Loud.  Disheartening.  They have led me to say (on multiple occasions!) over these last several months that “I just can’t do it” or that “I’d do better to put this off until next year.”  I can say with absolute certainty that this book was a gift to me in so many ways.  It validated my love for writing and my desire to embark on this crazy quest.  It reminded me that I had the power inside me to actually pull this thing off.  More importantly than anything, however, it reminded me that the story inside me can only be told through my words.  My hard work.  My writing.  I owe it to myself to give my story a voice and to believe in myself as I embark upon this challenge.  And I owe it to the world (be it only one person or many!) to share this story in the hopes of entertaining and uplifting and educating others.  Thank you, Kevin, for trusting me with your book and for giving me this unique opportunity to share it with the rest of the world.

Over the next few days, I will be sharing quotes and parts of the book that are meaningful to me.  I hope that you’ll come back each day and share in these wonderful words of inspiration with me.  I also strongly, strongly encourage any of you who are considering NaNoWriMo to please order this book.  Trust me when I say that you will not be sorry.  Each of us comes to NaNoWriMo with different concerns.  This book addresses them all.  It’s available for only $4.00 for all e-reading devices, and 100% of the proceeds go to the Office of Letters and Light, the nonprofit organization that sponsors NaNoWriMo and other programs to inspire a love of writing in others.
