Why You Should Write a Book in June
JuNoWriMo is our spin off of NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) that takes place in June, challenging you to write 50,000 words in thirty days. In the past two years, JuNoWriMo has inspired hundreds of writers to get their books written, including myself. June is the perfect month to stop procrastinating and get that book written.
Why should you write a book in June? Here’s one reason.
J is for Just Do It
In the words of an old, green sage,
Do or do not. There is no try.
Ask yourself this: what does it take to be a writer? Only one thing: you gotta write stuff down.
That’s it. Maybe what you write is good, maybe it isn’t; but either way, writing it makes you a writer. So quit all this aspiring business and just do it.
Maybe you’re stuck at “aspiring” status, because you’re preparing. Thinking about all the writing that goes into a book is overwhelming, and one must be ready—right? You want to be mentally prepared for the task, and not jump in willy-nilly. If that’s the case, I’ll give you some advice from Spaceballs:
It might feel a little bit crazy to just start writing. Putting that pen to paper (or fingers to keys) without a plan? Insane, right? Maybe a little.
But to achieve anything it takes action. You have to quit thinking about, talking about, hoping for, aspiring, and DO.
What are you waiting for? Just do it.
