Empowering writers. Education.

3:55 a.m.
Awake since one hour. Writing on the blog, woke up full of energy after last night's dinner with my son and his wife. A dose of love and my world is brighter!

Got pangs of guilt, like: "I never went to Writer's School and I want to write a book. Should I take a course?"
Googled: write a book, and a page of options came out.
The site: www.peacecorpswriters.org gave me exactly the type of information I was looking for.
"How to write a novel in 100 days or less", by John Coyne, softened me with the first words met. There's even a daily log -with each day a word of encouragement, advice, or wisdom or a task to get the book written. 

These are the words of encouragement I found on the opening of the article:
"Novelist Toni Morrisson put it this way: "If there's a book you really want to read but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it."
What you need:
° I believe that you can write a simple English sentence (after all, that's what Ernest Hemingway wrote), 
° are alert to the world around you, and want to -not just kind of want to-

 Then you can write. I don't think anybody became a writer by going to a workshop, reading a book, or even reading this article. Writing comes from something internal in a writer. However, this article will save you time, point you in the right direction, and help you write a novel in 100 days or less."

To touch on the "Diploma Rule" prevailing in this world, Seth Godin was mentioning in his daily blog article: "The Fear Tax":
"Another example: the MBA. A lot of entrepreneurs get an MBA because they are afraid to go out into the world without one. They are seeking the reassurance a credential will bring them, even though the cost is huge and there's no data to indicate that they'll be more successful as an entrepreneur as a result."
