So my scared friends, today is the day! Last week I challenged to you to The One Scary Thing Challenge. I hope you’ve been busy scaring yourself into success!
My scary thing
… continued …
My scary thing involved cracking open my sign ebook once again. The writing was finished at the beginning of the year… but I knew the design would take my little project into overtime.
Why this was scary
I’ve been making excuses FOREVER because I knew what was coming. So the day I finally decided to smarten up and crack it open, my heart actually RACED. Crazy but true. I truly felt a flood of dread dump over me like a bucket of water. I literally sat down in front of the computer and groaned while I opened the document. But I pushed and just MADE MYSELF DO IT.
Know what? It was as tricky as I predicted it would be. It took determination and redos. Yes, even effort. My neck hurt and I went through lots of coffee. It just quite simply took lots and lots of effort.
Mission accomplished! A start anyway…
But… I did it!! I’m happy to report Chapter one is fully designed and I know the rest will flow a little easier with a ‘look’ somewhat established. I hope…
I also realize this one could fall by the wayside once again, so I actually have a plan of action to keep things going.
Plan for success – SCHEDULE IT
My goal is to have the book completed alongside my new website design that will begin this summer sometime. So I’m making a vow to MAKE myself open that ebook up at least once a week and pound on it hard. I do best with longer spurts than quick entries because I tend to reread what I’ve done and tweak rather than move ahead. Longer is better for me. So… I’m booking it in! And I’m telling you so you’ll help keep me honest. (yes, shaming myself)
The initial ebook intro is HERE.
How scary goes away
Still on the fence about your scary endeavour? I don’t blame you. But I also know, if you start stroking these scary things off the to do list, they get done. Imagine. And you just get better at it. Just like my church photo session I told you about on Tuesday. That was every bit as scary as this book writing. And now it isn’t. Funny how that works.
I’ve heard some ramblings behind the scenes of some plans you’ve been working through, so I truly hope you’ll share your scary progress in either the below linkup or in comments.
So, what was your scary thing you worked through?
How did it help you get where you need to go?
What will you do to keep up the momentum?
Do we need another challenge?
