It Seemed Like A Good Idea At Three Am

Hello writer friends. Grab your laptops and coffee and get ready to prepare for the toughest month of your writing career. You guessed it folks, NaNoWriMo. For those of you that don’t know, NaNoWriMo is National Novel Writing Month.

So in honor of this month’s writing challenge, I am going to share with 7 ways to actually succeed in NaNoWriMo this month.

1. Tell yourself you can do it.

It won’t do you much good if you don’t believe in yourself. If writing a book is something you’ve always wanted to do, then now is your chance. The book isn’t going to write itself.

2. Get a new coffee maker.

Ok, this one is optional, but still. Coffee is a writer’s fuel right?

He is not attractive, has a misshapen body, and no education. Nevertheless, Zacchaeus manages to rise above these shortcomings and becomes the wealthiest man of Jericho. 

The book continues sharing dialogue and stories of Zacchaues’ unparalleled generosity with his wealth, his wisdom in various situations, and the honor he has throughout the world. Clearly, this is a man of greatness. 

Zacchaeus shares at the end of the short book the…

I Will Act Now by Og Mandino



One sunday morning, after shooting some hoops at the IDS multi-purpose hall, I sat on a wooden bleacher to take a break. While looking down on the ground, I noticed a piece of trash. I picked up this paper and curiously unfolded it to see its content.

As I read the piece, I thought to myself, “wow, this is very good writing. Who could have composed it?” Images then flashed back on my mind wondering who among the students could have came up with such  an inspiring composition. Then I saw the name: Og Mandino

I googled the guy and I was suprised. He was actually famous – rather a well known American author of self-help and motivation books. This just caught my full attention as thoughts of Law of Attraction filled my head. I researched the internet as I was eager to know his biography. I found a summary…

“I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness because it shows me the stars.”

Craig's Quotes

“I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness because it shows me the stars.”
