This Book Will Change Your Life

When I started writing I had no idea what I would write about.  I thought it would be more of an exercise, mental calisthenics just to keep me entertained.

I soon discovered I needed a push.  I had the desire to write, but the creative muscles were rusty.  Making new habits is tough.  I needed a plan.

Enter This Book Will Change Your Life.  That’s a pretty bold statement…. This Book Will Change Your Life.  I can’t say that this book changed my entire life.  But it did  make me sit down and write something down almost every day.

The book challenges you to focus on “hysterical living.”  I found in executing the daily challenges that I lived pretty hysterically already.  Shocking, I know.

Eventually I didn’t need the kick in the pants to sit down and write and the book has been resting comfortably on a bookshelf.  In the meantime you can start at the very beginning – click the links below to see how I challenged myself.
