Here’s a biggie: what would you like your legacy to be?
Now I’m a person over 40, I think about this from time to time.
I don’t have kids; so what will I leave behind? And how can I leave the world a little better than when I found it? (That seems a more and more difficult question to answer.)
My books will part of my legacy, I guess. But I haven’t written The One yet.
The people who I help to write their books are part of my legacy.
The space I create for people excluded by traditional publishing will be part of my legacy.
I have more thinking to do.
So what about you?
Set a timer and write write write.
