It’s official…I’m taking the leap. I am writing a book in November. It is something that I have to write. I no longer have the idea, but the idea has me. Oh, and the book is not related to blogging. Even if no one reads it outside of my family, it has to be written. Here is why it must be written:

  • Writing a book in 30 days both scares and excites me at the same time.
  • One of my life goals has always been to write a book.
  • It stretches me out of my comfort zone (an essential principle for success)
  • I don’t want to die with a book idea still in me.
  • It aligns well with my passion and my purpose.
  • It is a great legacy and example to leave behind for my kids.

Why Am I Telling You All of This?

Why in the world am I telling you all of this? Basically, there are three reasons:
  • I need some accountability – I am putting myself out there a little bit by telling you. I plan on reporting back in the month of November to tell you about my honest progress (or lack thereof).
  • I need to eliminate excuses – I have many reasons I could list as to why this is bad timing. In the end, excuses are just lies that you tell yourself.
  • I want to offer encouragement – I want to partner with others who have wanted to write a book. Please come join me and lets offer encouragement to each other.

Do You Have a Book Idea Inside You?

If you have been wanting to write a book, then join me on this adventure. In order to accomplish this feat in the month of November, you will need to write around 1,600 words a day. Since I already spend a good amount of time writing each day, I know that this will take me between 1 1/2 to 2 hours a day to do this.


I want you to join me in this challenge. I have created a Private Facebook Group just for this challenge. Just click on BYP Writer’s Group and you can send me an invitation to join the group. We will use the group to provide encouragement, accountability, and insight. If you have trouble joining the group through the link above, just send me an email. Let me leave you with this quote from Rochelle Melander:


The pain is temporary the book is forever.

  1. Jonathon, This is fantastic! God touches us in ways we never thought possible. God uses ordinary people to accomplish His will. Look at D.L. Moody for example. He was an ordinary man like you and me….enter God…look what has happened…we all know Moody. How many preachers, teachers and mission fields have been touched by his ministry. I have no doubt, Jonathon, that you are a man of God. Just let Christ touch you.
    Ans wharsoever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus,giving thanks to God and the Father by Him. Col.3:17
