Monday

Up To?

Hi,
I apologize about the LONG delay in writing. Even though it's been quite a long time since you've heard from me, it's not because we haven't been doing anything ... although ... we haven't really been doing anything.

Truthfully, I have been working on a book in my spare time. It's taken me an extra month to get it to where I really wanted it. But, I didn't really want to rush the process. I want to be proud of what I've written.

Anyhow ...

Here's the reason I am writing today. I would like to ask for a minute of your time, and see if you will offer your opinion?

Over to the right, over there, is a survey.

I will probably update it with new questions over the next few weeks, but right now I truly need your help in giving me guidance on a title for my book. Please let me know what you think?

If you like one of my current ideas listed, please choose it.
Here are my current titles:
10 Minute Content
Supersonic Content
One Minute Content
Instant Content

If you don't, please submit a different idea in the comment section below. I'll make sure and look through all of the ideas.

As you can tell, the book is about writing. Specifically, it's about writing content quickly, in short bursts of activity.


Finally, I want to thank you for taking the time to help me out in completing this project. I will be having this book professionally edited over the next month or two, and then going into the self-publishing process. If you've read this far, I have one last request from about 5 people. I would like to have about 5 people read my book for me, specifically to offer me editing advice.

If you would like to help me, and read the book, and then you decide you don't think I should have written it ... I don't really want to know that. It doesn't really help me ... I still plan on publishing it whether or not you think it should be used as toilet paper.

However, I truly want you to ready through it and offer me corrective advice and suggestions so I can make it a helpful tool.

Thanks so much for you time!
If you're interested, shoot me a comment below, or send me a message on facebook, or send an email. If you don't know my email, and you want it, let me know in the comments below.


Talk soon!
Al

Hey J,
You should have this in your inbox already. Be gentle with my tender ego, I'm not sure it can handle too much criticism right now. I'll probably be alright, as long as you don't tell me it would be good for t.p.

Thanks for the hook-up!
Al

I liked instant content. I would like to proof your book for you if you want to send it to me.

Hi Shana,
Thanks for contacting me on this. You should have an email from me, along with a link to download the current version.

Thanks for taking the time to look this over for me! And let me know if you have any questions or problems getting to it.

Have a great day out there in Oregon!
Al

Good post from Seth Godin.
I have NEVER had the problem of too few ideas. I have always had too many ideas for the time I've been given. And then couple that with my inability to follow through on the ideas I am working on... and there is my dilemma.

However, I am coming to see that focus is a HUGE factor in achieving the things we really want to in life. Pick the stuff you really like, and leave the rest by the side. And then, you might actually accomplish what you set out to do.

What do you think J?
