I have been considering writing an ebook for a very long time but have been finding excuses, putting it off for other work and just in the long run, not doing it!
In November Ruth from the excellent blog Web Career Girl set herself a challenge to write 50,000 words, and guess what, she did it and with a little time to spare.
Part of that 50k word goal was to outline and lay down the first drafts for 4 ebooks that she will be using for various projects. 4 ebooks in 1 month! That is quite an achievement!
I’m sure like me you would love to complete even just one Ebook in a month so drawing on her experience Ruth has put together an absolutely excellent and completely free report detailing how you can write that ebook that you have been putting off.
Now if you want to get this report right now then just sign up to the mailing list below (This is Ruth’s list, I offered to host a form on this post) or if you need a little extra help before downloading then visit her latest post:
Finalising Your eBook Writing Action Plan – My Template
I have a request for you all today. I hope you can help me out and be inspired too. I recently wrote about How To Use Your Powers For Good and my good friend Neal has decided to do just that, so it’s my duty as a fellow blogger to try and get his cause some attention.
So please lend a hand.
Neal has made an excellent video for this years Project 4 Awesome. He has made a video for the Children’s Heart Network highlighting some important facts about Children with Heart Defects.
Please watch the video and then read on to see what you can do to help.
Thanks for watching, I think you will all agree he did a great job.
Sorry I missed Monday’s post, you know…. Same old excuse that I was busy :).
Anyway I have been making use of Google Wave in the last few weeks and I have to say that I really like it.
As I have been mentioning, I have been working on a lot of projects with other people so have been using Waves in place of email to keep up to date on things and keep organised central copies of job lists and related materials.
Wave keeps one editable copy of your file on their server. So rather than having to mark off items from a list and then resend a new email out to my partners, I can now edit one central file.
Also I am keeping track of some of my own websites on there, writing keyword lists, notes and more. Just to help with motivation I am even sharing these progress reports with some of my close online buddies.
In short, Wave is useful.
So do you want in?
Great, well I have 25 invites to give away so the first 25 people to comment here, asking for an invite, gets a wave invite. Make sure your email is attached to your name so I can mail you the invite.
If you are already on Wave, come and say hi. My Wave email is: firstname.lastname@example.org.
This last week has been busy as normal with moving and selling a few sites, some client work and plans for December. I want December to be a good month before the January / February blues sets it! Usually these months are quiet for me on the client and site selling front but I will make sure I stay just as busy readying my own sites for March when things start to pick up again…. But who knows this year may be different!
Anyway this weeks Musically Motivated Monday comes with an important message. One of my readers called Sandy asked me to post it. This version of the song “Waiting for the World to Change” has an accompanying video with deaf people signing the lyrics and interesting snippets showing how discriminated the deaf have been throughout the years….. This is why I love the internet, for many deaf people it’s helped closed the gap slightly as you cannot make a pre-assumption about a person based on their hearing or anything else. Knowing Sandy personally I can tell you that her deafness does not affect her wittiness or intelligence one little bit!
The video is a bit “Early 90’s” but the message is solid.
