We’ve let the ground settle for a couple months around here. It’s an important process, I believe, to let the ground recover from years of harvesting. And now we’ve planted the seeds that will soon break the ground and we couldn’t be more excited.
The writing life really is like farming. If you keep planting and harvesting the soil without letting it rest, the crops suffer.
In an age where everybody is competing for attention, a sense of panic can set in and we end up producing material that feels rushed and forced and written from a place of desperation rather than creative inspiration. But quality will win in the long run. And to create quality, you have to let the soil recover.
What you can expect from me over the next six months is a lot of new crops. I’ll be releasing a Storyline book that is, essentially, a personal development guide. I’ve taken the three years of conferences we’ve done about living a better story and distilled the process into eight modules that, once completed, will give you a life plan centered around experiencing a meaningful life. But it won’t just be a book. When you order the book, you’ll get free access to an online dashboard in which you can enter and share your story with the world. The process is designed to “lock in” the changes you’ve made so you’re more likely to execute your plan.
Not only this, but the whole process is going to be cost effective. Actually, you won’t believe how accessible we are making it for everybody. We can’t wait.
This blog will also be changing. We have invited some well-known writers to contribute along with some lesser-known writers who, we feel, are destined for the best-sellers list. And I’ll still be blogging regularly so you’ll be hearing a great deal from me, too.
We will also be announcing a new Storyline Conference that will take place in San Diego in February of next year. It’s going to be our biggest, most ambitious conference yet. Once again, we are taking Storyline to the next level. And yet as always, the conference is focused on helping you live a better story. We won’t be doing the shotgun approach, we are the rifle conference, the conference that hones down on your story and where you fit in God’s overall epic.
We are hoping against hope to have all the changes up and running in August. We will be sending out an e-mail when the changes are launched.
We are eager to bring you great new material and create community around the concept of living a better story. Thanks for being patient as we let the ground recover.
Talk with you soon,
