Kwanzaa is a Swahili word that literally means the "first fruits of harvest."
So here I am, on Christmas Day, wondering what I have to show for 2013 as a nonfiction writer. Well, looks like I have nothing so far. So imagine how it felt like to update my sad GoodReads profile, which had no author bio until I added it on Christmas Eve! As I was updating the profile and adding my latest author pic, I reflected about my 2013 advance as an author. Although I dabbled in a fiction genre (genre and pen name to remain undisclosed), part of me was not ready to just remain in the world of fiction and give up non-fiction entirely. I felt sad I had nothing to show for this year yet in the nonfiction arena.
Thus, I came up with my own personal writer's challenge: create an ebook by 11:59 P.M., Tuesday, December 31, 2013. That way, I can celebrate an accomplishment by New Year's Day 2014!
Think I can do it?
Yes, I can!!! The challenge starts now!!!
