I’m excited to tell you about my next book.
In a recent session with my coach, she asked how I was getting on with the Genius book I’m writing, which is an exploration of what Genius really is and how we apply our personal blend of Genius to improve the world we live in.
The more I write and interview people about Genius, the more I explore the evolution of my Genius and how I share this with the world.
A constant for me is Niki Owl, who “came to life” in 1995, which means this year is a VERY SPECIAL ANNIVERSARY for us.
What better way to celebrate than to write a book about it?!
I told my coach I was feeling inspired to write about the birth and real story of Niki Owl, as a celebration of how his presence impacts me and the world. The fact that my coach is called Nicky is no surprise, and this is in the book too.
Nicky asked how long it would take me to write the book. This was on a Friday morning.
“I think I can do it in three days,” I replied intuitively.
“Okay, then we’ll have our next session on Tuesday morning, and you’ll have finished the book by then, right?”
And I did.
Here is the manuscript for Genesis:
I’m excited to share the published version with you soon!
The best part? It flowed so EASILY. Even with a 3 hour visit to the Audi dealership that Saturday morning, and watching Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday. I diligently wrote, typed, remembered, looked through my archives of illustrations and creations, and shared my page-by-page progress with the awesome team at my favourite coffee shop… I’d say it took 20 hours in total to write. Committed, focused, inspired.
Most people are in autopilot telling themselves adopted stories that writing a book is hard (seriously, who told you that?). When you really think about it, nothing is hard when you’re fully inspired, focused and committed. Writing Genesis is a powerful reminder of this.
