I sent an email out today to hundreds of people who had signed up for my book writing list...apologizing.
Mostly because I didn't "get it".
See when I wrote Writing The Damn Book it wasn't because I really wanted to get into the helping people write business. It was because (warning-naked honest truth there) I was tired of everyone asking me for advice on how to write and finish their books and I figured I could hand them a book and move on.
Yes, I've done book retreats and support clients through the process, but it felt more like a side thing. A really juicy amazingly fulfilling side thing, one that I have found to be completely in my zone of genius, but not something I did as my main business.
I really just wanted to give people a resource that was more spiritually aligned with completing a book so that I could get back with my 'real' business.
I didn't see how this fit into my true purpose.
There was no strategy. No really smart path. It just...was.
Meanwhile I have people signing up every single day for that list, for resources and guidance and I didn't know what to do with them. With you. I felt the pressure to perform somehow but I didn't feel the desire...
And then it hit me...
That I talk about writing a book as the biggest piece of self development I've ever done. And the coaching and mentoring I do with my book clients is so deep and transformational that it's really NOT about the book...
It's about the MESSAGES. Becoming clear with who the authors are being and living into the messages they are infusing into what they are writing. It's about their actual transformation that is required to write a book of TRUE substance and change.
And hundreds of messages dying to be out in the world were sitting there dying on my email list.
Those messages, YOUR messages, and YOUR transformation completely and totally are a part of my mission and purpose. It is not separate, something I do on the side.
So I get it now.
And I'm IN.
And I'm creating content and resources to send out weekly to my authors. Because this shit's important, because writing and publishing the damn books are important... to fundamentally change how intuition, empathy, spirituality and energy work in the world we need to actively be bringing these messages out - and we need to be transforming from within to help facilitate the changes in the world we are meant to create.
Let's write people. Let's write....
