Your place for community & resources to find or create work you love
We are so glad you're here and ready to take the next step! We created 48days.net as a place for community. For people to encourage each other and help each other in finding or creating work that is meaningful.
But frankly, we've outgrown it, so we're moving to provide you new resources.

I'm writing a book in 3 weeks. That's right...3 weeks! I'm actually trying to polish it off in 2 weeks.
In reality, I'm simply gathering together a lot of things I speak about and blog about and putting them in a book. This is a strategy I teach at the Speak It Forward Boot Camp.
Anyway, I need help naming the book. The book is a "success" book for teenagers and will basically have 3 sections.
Two quick thoughts on this basic outline:
So, what I need help with, and quickly, is what to title the book. Here's what I'm thinking so far. The title is before the hash mark, subtitle is after the hash mark.
I have more...but these are my top 3 so far.
Thoughts, insights, and ideas welcome!
I've hired an editor, but if you want to take a look as well, I'll send it your way. Let me know.
Also, really came up with some cool book cover ideas. I'm going to post a voting contest soon.
Congratulations! Awesome accomplishment and a testament that when we set our mind to get something done, we can and that God will bless our efforts.
BTW, I'm sure you mean 30,000 WORDs and not pages ; - D
Finished writing the book in 3 weeks on the nose (sent it to Andrea Reynolds -- a 48 Days member -- last night for editing).
It's right at 30,000 words. I actually wrote and proofed it once in 19 days (and most of that work was done in 12 days), then took two days to proof it a second time before sending it to Andrea.
Now onto the book cover, book layout, and printing. Target date to have it in my hands: Oct. 7.
What's super cool is that I decided to do this project on August 22 because of landing a speaking engagement to an audience of 4,000. That means from the moment I decided to do this project until the moment I should have the finished product in hand is only 54 days! Pretty awesome!!
One more side note...I have picked up 4 more speaking engagements to similar audiences in the past three weeks. It's as if once I decided to do this book, speaking engagements to audiences for this book just started pouring in. That's one of the magic combos of speaking and writing.
