Video: Journal with Me – A Productivity Hack

Video: Journal with Me – A productivity hack

Have you heard of study with me videos?

I’m addicted to them now. I found them through music artist, turned mother and author – Amerie. I’ve followed her youtube channel mostly focused on books for about 2 years now. She recently posted a 40 minute writing video:

As a writer myself, I’ve personally struggled to be productive, find the motivation, and most importantly community for creative and productive works. Hopefully you find these videos and productivity companions for you. Just as they have been for me.

Apparently this phenomenon comes from Asian cultures where you can find even more videos under the gongbank keyword.

Feel free to mute me. Or listen along to my craziness.

From Blogging to Book Writing – BEDA Day 11 of 31

From Blogging to Book Writing

BEDA Day 11 of 31

=============

Write-a-book

Why am I blogging everyday?

One of my long-term goals was to be a published author.

Today, I’m meeting with my teaching and writing buddy to support each other with our publishing projects.

My thoughts were that if I blogged everyday, I would already be in the zone, and that it would be easier to focus my time and energy into my manuscript.

(It feels nice to say that word.)

At this point, I do have a manuscript. It’s nowhere near as done as I thought it’d be. Here we are at August 11, and I think I’ve only been able to invest 4 real chunks of time into the book.

The process I’ve used thus far has looked loosely like this:

  • -Read a handful of e-books on writing your own nonfiction book.
  • -Generated ideas
  • -Bought a personalized book writing toolkit from Fiverr.com
  • -Narrowed my ideas down to the three biggest ideas I had. (all others are blog topics)
  • -Bought a notebook, and wrote one full page on what I wanted to book to be about
  • -Brainstorm chapter titles (The title creates the content)
  • -Worked to complete two pages of ideas for each chapter
  • -Transferred journal outline to Google Docs
  • -Started fleshing out individual chapters (taking note of where I need to do more research)
  • -Elicited feedback and motivational support from writing partners

 

ConfidenceCurve-4-1023x1030Anxietyyyyyyyyy – is the name of the game. I’m hoping to push out the bulk of the narrative before I return to teaching in about 3 weeks. I know anything that’s not done by that point will take about 3 times as long to complete.

No I’m kidding, no anxiety. Looking back I’ve completed the most difficult pieces. The outline. Now I just need to go through and stream of conscious my way through the bulk of the writing process.

The most difficult pieces were coming up with the topic I wanted to write about, as well as outlining the book. I had to step outside of myself and find multiple outlines and examples to help me work on my own.

Today, my friend helped my by going through my outline, and providing me feedback on the sections that she thought were the most interesting and compelling. I talked her through my vision for the project. I was kind of embarrassed sharing my creative projects with her. But I was also happy to be sharing with someone that was even interested.

My book – Knowledge Hacking currently has 10 chapters. Do you like the name? ^_^ I’m very proud of the concept and can’t wait to complete.

What are your thoughts? Do you have any written projects you’re working on?
