I'm going to start a facebook live challenge on my author page. One that I'm giving to myself! I will go live on Monday 10/23 and I will post a live video each day at 7am PST for 11 days. For the 3 days following (11/3 - 11/5) I will post live at a writer's conference I am attending in Vegas.
That will be 2 weeks of daily live posts and then I'll post regularly at least 1 time per week but maybe 2 after the initial challenge.
I'm blogging to you about the challenge for accountability, which is one of my favorite things to talk about :)
So what will I be facebook living about? I've decided to cover a variety of topics which include the things I am most passionate about. Health, sustainability and helping the planet, cooking, exercise, motivation, accountability, the writing process, optimism and peeks into my life. Why am I doing this? Why not? Just kidding :) I'm doing this to connect with readers, to form a community and to have fun!
I do have a background in TV production (and I even had a live TV show once upon a time) but this is very different. This is scriptless (bullet points only) - darn I miss that teleprompter already. This is personal. This is unedited. Exactly like these musings!
There will be mistakes and flubs and maybe even tea cups crashing to the floor, certainly my dog will bark during at least one of them. But so what? That's what live video means!
I'm not worrying about viewership or follows - though all that would be nice. But that's not why I'm setting up this challenge. I'm doing this challenge because I love to be challenged, it makes my blood swirl and twist, writhing through my cells like a tornado and no I'm not talking about the adrenaline. Challenging myself to jump out of my comfort zone, to do something new and different and to follow that process is what makes me smile. I hope, that at least once during the live videos, I can make you smile too! Because this truly is about you, the viewer, not me!

Here are some musings - Nothing fancy - no outline and no editor - just some stream of consciousness. You want to read my books? :)
