Exciting news: today my new book, Crowdsourcing Paris, is published! I’ve been working on this book for five years, and I’m so excited to finally share it with you.
Crowdsourcing Paris means a lot to me. It’s my memoir of a pretty amazing chapter of my life. It’s also the book that you helped me write, and so I’m especially excited to share it here, in the Write Practice community.
The Book You Helped Me Write
When I first became a writer, I wanted to write like Hemingway, sitting in cafés in Paris and writing great novels. So I took my family to Paris for the spring, hoping to write an amazing book.
But several of my mentors told me that writing about sitting in cafés in Paris would make for a really boring book. I hated to admit it, but they were right.
So I reached out to readers of The Write Practice and asked you to send me adventures, challenges I’d have to accomplish in Paris, obstacles that would turn this book — and honestly, my life — into an interesting story.
And wow, you came through for me.
This book is the story of that spring: the wild adventures you sent me on, the hurdles I faced along the way, and what I learned about what it takes to write (and live) a great story.
Whether you’ve followed along since the beginning or you just found The Write Practice yesterday, you’re a vital part of my journey with this book. It truly would not have happened without this community and your support.
