Kurt Vonnegut
Stumbled upon Kurt yesterday and am seriously intrigued. This 4:36 video led to me starting to watch the one above.

Slaughterhouse Five?

 

Writing and speaking are similar. In both cases, it’s nice to have an interested audience.

Having an interested audience buy a book or a ticket is one thing. Having them definitely recommend and definitely repurchase is entirely another.

Of course i’ve heard of Kurt Vonnegut. Have i ever read anything he’s written?

No.

That’s about to change.

Every* year at Disney the annual Leadership Excellence survey results had me go straight to the answer for the most important question…

“I trust my leader.”

On a five point scale of:

  1. Always
  2. Most of the time
  3. Sometimes yes, sometimes no
  4. Not very often
  5. Never

This is the question i hoped to score highest on.

* There were only a few exceptions where we skipped a year due to extenuating economic circumstances, such as the Gulf War and the year following 9/11.

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.

Who did you say you are again?

Safe to assume he would say, “I am Scottish”?

 

Who did you say you are again?

The most challenging part of answering this question is in actually believing what comes out of our mouths.

I am a writer.

jeff noel Wonders How Many People Worry About What To Write

What's your purpose?

Recently, jeff noel asked a friend if he was still running. The friend had fallen away from running. The friend said the first mile is always the toughest.

It is if you believe it is. It isn’t if you believe it isn’t. In writing, the first sentence will only be tough if you think it will be tough.

Can A Prolific Blogger Take A Writing Vacation?

jeff noel is on a writer's vacation

That’s what it feels like right now, a writer’s vacation. The intent as noble as ever. More so even. The process to get it done? Discovering it one new day at a time. I’m lovin’ it!

(reminder: please don’t let Mid Life Celebration’s blogs and their likeness of a one-way conversation keep you from missing the point…in this post, for example, jeff noel is really saying, “What’s your important thing you’re experimenting with? Are you loving it?”)
