Last week, I somehow found myself in the U.S. Congress buildings lobbying for legislation that helps prevent genocide.
On my way to our group's allotted meeting spot, I ran into Joey at the elevators. He had a suitcase with him and I asked, "Are you moving in?"
He laughed. Turns out a joke was a good way to start with Joey. He's writes books on humor when not trying to end genocide. Macabre combination.
When I heard he was a writer, I immediately wanted to know his secrets. So, I followed him down to the cafeteria to buy tea I didn't need just so I could pick his brain while he picked at his over-cooked industrial eggs.
What's the secret to successfully writing books?
That's the $1,000,000 question or at least $50,000 question for a book with a small circulation. He offered this very simple advice,
"Once you accept that it is a slow process that builds gradually, you can stop being frustrated with the speed. Just keep building a little at a time. If you write one page a day in a year you have 365 pages."
Be satisfied with the slow build...keep going.
