GO

In conversations with friends and talking enjoying their company they tell me I should write a book. I come back with a statement like: "It's all been said before, why try to reinvent the wheel when there's already the same thing out there?" 

Well, the time is now... no more lame excuses. So, I've been working on my first book for about a month now. It's pretty complicated because I have to do research to get my facts straight. Nobody wants to read babble. Also, I've been writing these posts and other articles on another blog... my business blog. I don't know if you know it or not... I'm a bodyworker [massotherapist] and a Biblical Life Coach. I am weaving my story into what I am writing for relevance and relating to people. I tried different writing methods, like, just typing it out in Word or notepad, etc... I was very frustrated with that because my thoughts were all over the place. My husband mentioned mind mapping... I didn't know what that is. He explained and also shared a software I could try out. I absolutely love it. I've been able to track my thoughts and get things organized.

STOP

Now, it's your turn!
