My book idea has been staring me in the face…

At the start of the year I committed to my good friend Stef that I would come up with a core idea for a book by March.

Part of the process to figure out what the book might be was to start these weekly letters. Something to push me to write with purpose each day.

Thanks to Cara for pointing out that my book idea has been staring me right in the face.

It’s these letters!

In July 2019, roughly six months after publishing my first letter, I will begin to revisit all of my letters and get them ready for a book.

I’d love to be in a position to publish my first book late 2019/early 2020.
