High upside no downside has practically *zero* risk. Why don't we do it? I don't know.

A nice email, and good questions -

your blog has helped me really transform my life in a matter of a week or so. I've never had so mcuh motivation, to do even simple things like clean up my workspace. it only seems to be getting better from here and it really is because of you. every morning i read your blog and get fresh insight into myself.

I've started getting books you've recommended, and so far so good. It would be great if you could suggust some more for me, particulary about getting the motivation to take a risk.

I'm having trouble making myself have passion for what i love, although everyday it seems to be getting a small bit easier. I have started to track my time, and so far even the fact that I'm doing it gets me more motivated knowing i cam keep up a system.

Thanks for the kind words. It'd be great if I could suggest some books on taking a risk?

Jumping in the deep end

On Linus Rylander

The National Novel Writing Month starts at midnight tomorrow. The challenge is to write a 50k-word novel in the month of November.

I just signed up two days ago. But clicking a button doth not a novelist make. I clicked the sign up button and then I thought "well, shit."

Oh crap, I'm going to write a novel!

I have absolutely no idea what to write about. I've never written any sort of fiction before.

The plan is to start writing as soon as November 1st begins, and then keep writing until I have 50,000 words. Figure it out as I go along.
