You need to meet my friend Marlena. She’s a delightful person and very good at her work—which may be why every time I talk to her she says something like, “I couldn’t possibly take on another client; I’m completely booked.”
If New Yorkers are the busiest people in the world, Marlena is a New Yorker on steroids.
But there’s one thing she always makes time for: my 5-day writing challenge.
Marlena knew how to write before she registered for her first challenge, of course. But she wasn’t doing it. She didn’t have the time.
Now? She makes the time, even if it’s just 15 minutes.
This is what she told me the other day:
“It’s a heartbreakingly wonderful accomplishment to put words on a page. That’s all it takes, and you are a writer. So many people yearn to write—it’s their heart’s dream. And you help them do that.”
Don’t you deserve a “heartbreakingly wonderful accomplishment”?
