I'm coming to you this week from the intersection between writing heaven and hell. The heaven comes because I'm working on a brand new book that's the best writing I've ever done.
The hell comes because though I started the first draft on June 1st, I'm trying to finish a second draft to enter this awesome contest next week. If I want to finish a second draft, I need to edit 100,000 words in 7 days...
Is it insane? Yes.
Am I sleeping? No.
But has this ridiculous challenge been the most insightful writing experience of my life? Hell yeah!
Right now I'm exploding with so many valuable writing lessons I can't wait to share with you. But before I get started, I need to know what you most want to learn! I don't want to waste my time creating a video series on how to revise like a queen if you're struggling with the first draft.
Because our community's doubled this summer (2,100 writers now!), I think it's time to do a pulse check. Let me know what you want to learn by taking this short (3 minute!) survey.
These surveys are essential for me because it lets me know what I should spend my time on. Do you want another #WeWriteNow challenge or do you want me to bring my famous plot workshops back? Do you want more ways to connect with our writing community or do you want more writing freebies?
At this point in my writing journey there's so much I want to share. I know with time I'll get to write about it all, but for now I want to start with what's most important to you!
With over 2,100 writers on our site, I have to hear your voice so I can make sure tomiadeyemi.com stays relevant to you and your writing needs.
Excited to hear what you want to learn and can't wait to create new stuff to help,
