Cesky Krumlov: My new writing location

Writing in Cesky Krumlov as the perfect location

My new writers retreat location: Cesky Krumlov, Czech Republic! I begin the second draft tomorrow and I’m very excited about it. I chose this location for several reasons: It’s beautiful, cheap, walkable, cool climate, has fast internet, and it’s full of tourists who I can communicate with as they pass through the hostel I’m living in. Every day I see a thousand amazing writing locations in this neat little town…it’s just perfect!

Follow Your Dreams Today

Why wait any longer? Follow your Dreams Now!

Why not follow your dreams? For the past five years I’ve doubted myself. I told myself I can’t write, I can’t read, and I had no idea how I would ever start or finish this book. The book began taking over my life. I chose to listen to those who doubted me rather than those who supported me. I battled hard to finish my first draft through waves of depression, anxiety, and a complete lack of self confidence. I wanted to give up over and over again but ploughed on through the tough times.
Now that I’ve finished my first draft – I can now sit back and see the book with clarity. I’m 30% happy with what I’ve written, but more importantly I’m proud of myself for charging through, not giving up, and ticking off the first box. I’m feeling optimistic about the final product and I got so many ideas for the next draft. I can see where I need to improve and what I need to do and I’m feeling much more confident and excited about the rest of the book.
I’m about to begin the second draft in the next week and let me tell you it’s going to be an enjoyable read! It’s funny, it’s scary, it’s exciting, it’s sad, it’s enthralling, it’s very very cheeky – and you’re going to love it! I’m going to take it slow and enjoy the process whilst weaving my humor and creative talents amongst the words. Sometimes in life there is no point running away from your fears – you have to tackle them head on. If someone tells you you can’t do something, then BELIEVE IN YOURSELF and use that energy to spur you on. If you have a dream – then go for it! Don’t dwell on it…and never give up. There is no such thing as failure if you give it a go!

First Draft Complete…Thank you Boracay

Yes Finally…The First Draft of my book is complete

It’s been a slog doing this first draft but I’m sad to say it’s my final day in Boracay today after an amazing past six months. The good news is that 20 chapters, 328 pages, and 104,784 words later…I’ve finished my first draft of the book Thanks to everyone who has made this such a special time for me and helped me along with the book. I will miss this place! I’ve left over 1,000 promo cards scattered throughout the hostels and bars here…mission accomplished! Thanks again for everyone who helped me especially Rusty Young who is the Author of the famous book Marching Powder. I wish him all the best with his upcoming film on his brilliant book.
