Why Don’t You Write A Book?


  Stop this day and night with me

I was meeting with someone who reads this blog on a regular basis. Someone I have great respect for who is an important person in the world of Internet business. And he said to me, "why don’t you write a book?"

I hear that a lot. The Gotham Gal asks me that question too.

I am writing a book. It’s called avc.blogs.com. I write a chapter a day and it is available for free for anyone who wants to read it. It has a beginning and I suspect it will have an ending as long as I can still type on my deathbed.

I don’t mean to diss the art of writing a book. I realize that it’s a different thing than blogging. I have friends who write books like Steven, Kurt, and Seth to name a few. I have no idea how they do it. I can’t focus on a single story for more than about an hour.

I wasn’t born to write a book in the traditional sense. I, for some reason, was born to tell my story bit by bit, day after day, year after year.

And so that’s what I am doing.
