I wrote my next book in the shower last week. Like, literally. With a pencil and paper.
HOW BLOODY BRILLIANT IS THAT?
A lovely chap who reads my emails and listens to my podcasts heard me bemoaning the fact I often have great ideas in the shower, then instantly forget them. Because, goldfish brain.
So he found me a waterproof notebook and pencil, specially designed for shower-thinkers like me, packaged it up, and sent it to me.
It’s changed my life, because I’ve been thinking vaguely about writing another book for more than a year now, but haven’t got anywhere. Every time I had an idea, I wasn’t in a position to write it down. Until last week, when I found myself in the shower, outlining my ideas for How To Be More F*cking Interesting.
There I was, water streaming over my head, furiously scribbling down chapter titles and bullet points, marvelling at the fact I could write stuff down.
IN THE SHOWER.
Along with every other thought that comes into my head. For instance, I have a whole other page dedicated to my newest Superhero Member, whose business has the potential for all sorts of fun and games.
And another full of ideas for my next Brainee.
Because that’s how I roll. Always thinking of you, while I’m in the shower. And now, writing my thinkings down – warts and all.
(I don’t have warts)
Everything I do is all about being more fucking interesting – and helping you be more fucking interesting. Because that’s what’ll bring all the boys to your yard.
I’m all about bringing out the true colourful you, and shedding the beige overcoat of fear you’ve been huddling under. I know you’re interesting. I just need to get you to put it proudly and unapologetically on display so more people buy from you, more often.
Let’s get started:
Vicky Fraser is a copywriter, author, and entrepreneur. She really did run away with the circus… but when she’s not swinging from a trapeze, she’s showing other copywriters and small business owners how to work with better clients, make more money, and stop missing bathtimes, first words, and dinners with angry partners. In fact, she wrote the book on it. Get your copy here.
PS I also use it to write little love notes to Joe. Like, “I love you more than our inside-outside room loves raining inside.” Because comparitive love is where it’s at, people.
