Have you made a resolution this year?
Get in shape?
Make more money?
Have you made a resolution to write a book this year?
How’s that going so far?
If you’re like most people – you start off the year committed – motivated – enthusiastic!
Then the resolution loses momentum by the second week in January.
Why does that happen?
Well, you and I both know that motivation doesn’t last. Motivation is the energy you get when you make a decision – but it dwindles when you try to take action. Then, invariably, you try to “push” yourself to do it. Then your inner toddler throws a tantrum! Because nobody likes to be “pushed” into doing things – especially by themselves!
As James Clear wrote in Atomic Habits – “A good player works hard to win the game everyone else is playing. A great player creates a new game that favors their strengths and avoids their weaknesses.”
You have been trying to play a “good” game. Trying to push yourself into something that you need motivation to do is the exact game everyone else is playing.
In order to play a “great” game – you’ve got to change the game!
You’ve got to capitalize on your strengths – not your weaknesses.
Then you don’t need the “push” of motivation, because you develop the “pull” of your reward centres firing up in your brain.
That’s why I’ve put together this Write Club -21 Day Challenge.
Because writing a book is all about building good writing habits, and you can’t motivate yourself to enjoy the writing process from a “push” place – only from being pulled towards a new habit.
The easiest way to write a book that practically writes itself is to start out with a structure. I hosted a Masterclass in my Write Club community recently, that I’d love to share with you.
It’s completely free and will get you writing TODAY!

If you get inspired from the Masterclass and want to take the first step in FINALLY making that New Year’s Resolution come true – then join the Write Club Challenge!
Don’t let another year go by that you don’t make your writing come alive.
Build the habit.
Write your book.
Love the process.
I hope to see you in the Write Club Challenge!
