Be part of the community

What’s in it for you? Connections, inspiration, resources, support.

For the past two decades it’s been my dream to one day become a full-time author, writing stories that challenge the status quo, and making enough money from it to support my family. I’m in my early thirties now, so 20 years is a long time to dream of “one day.”

What’s kept me from actively chasing my dream? Fear of failure and lack of a clear step-by-step plan are probably the greatest obstacles I need to overcome. Sounds familiar? If you aren’t living your dream life yet, we’re likely in the same boat.

Honestly, I’m tired of dreaming of “one day.” I want my dream to be a reality now. If life has taught me one thing, it’s that I probably won’t get there alone, and even if I somehow make it all by myself, it’s more fun to share my journey with others. And that’s what this community is about.

How does this work? A challenge, a blog, and a support group.

To succeed, we need to come up with detailed steps that lead us to our goal, and that’s where the blog comes in, because that’s where I’ll be sharing my step-by-step plan and weekly updates about what worked and what didn’t. You can use this as a guide to write up your own to-do list. The challenge is to put the plan into action: each week we’ll tackle at least one task. I’ll also set up a community group so we can hold each other accountable and support each other. If you found me, chances are you’re a reader and/or writer, which probably makes Goodreads a good home for our group.
