I’m still struggling to find more than 15 minutes a day to write non-work-related content, but I’ve been piecing together rough outlines for three distinct projects I’d like to complete (or make legit progress on) before the end of the year. My hope is that, by breaking things down into much smaller pieces, I can make more progress on all of the above, er, below, rather.
Here’s what I’m working on, in order of progress made thus far…
#1 “Beanchode: Diary of a Somebody”
There isn’t so much an outline on this one as a growing desire to make these dailies more relevant and worthy of being turned into a book at some point. The only way that happens is if I can frame a legitimate arc and find the right balance between work life parallel journey and random, hopefully entertaining asides.
#2 “Changing Lanes: A Gearhead’s Guide to Work Life Parallel Parking”
I’ve got a fairly robust outline–and maybe a dozen pages of rough, written in 2016, copy–in place on this one, but I want to have it more finalized before I begin actually writing in earnest. Currently trying to figure out exactly what kind of value I want this one to deliver and how to structure the story to do so.
#3 “Get Parallel Series”
This is a self-paced, work life parallel discovery kit I’ve been working on here and there for the better part of a year. Landing at LeadMD–and discovering account-based sales–I’m inspired to revise everything, as account-based is a powerful metaphor–and relative roadmap–to work life parallel achievement. Not to mention it might make an immediate impact in peoples’ lives.
Here’s to progress, then.
