What It Is!
I always wanted to write. I took courses. I read books. I attended conferences. I watched videos. Each time, I would get all fired-up and sit down to write…but I didn’t write.
Then, it happened.
I sat down one morning and started writing a little story. The little story grew. Over the next months I learned things that moved me from “wanna be” to “writer”. I didn’t learn “steps”, or “techniques”, or “secrets”. What I learned was a new way of thinking about writing; about my writing
I have tried sharing it in workshops. I have tried sharing it in videos. I have tried sharing it in articles. Those have been well-received, but those one-time things don’t work any better now than they did before. That’s not the way we learn new ways of thinking. That happens over time. It’s a journey; an adventure from one place to another. My goal for Get Off The Bike is to share the map I used to take that journey.
Sound corney? Yeah. But it worked for me so I’m sticking with it.
Get Off The Bike is my attempt to share the ideas and resources that have helped me, and for those interested, to personally walk with you and talk about the journey along the way. Some call it “coaching”, but to me that sounds like I know all the plays and you just need to learn them. I tried that “just learn the plays” approach far too long. So I’m just calling this “conversation”…like across the table at the coffeeshop.
Thanks for reading…now go write something.
