Write a Bad Book

Last October, I tweeted, “Writing a bad book is better than writing no book.” I didn’t realize how controversial it would get.

Some people like it. Some people don’t. Regardless, I appreciate all comments from those who took time to give.

Of course, writing a good book is better than writing a bad book. But writing a bad book is indeed better than writing no book. When you write a bad book, you overcome your fears and doubts to breakthrough. If you don’t write a bad book, you’ll never know how good you really are and what a pity tragedy that is.

So start writing. Write the book that you’ve always wanted to write. Write that business that you’ve always wanted to write. Write that art that you’ve always wanted to write. Start writing and you could just be surprised by how good you can actually be.

  1. Those who are salty about that tweet probably hate themselves for not writing their own bad book (despite their attempts at writing a ‘good’ first book). I totally agree with you. I’ve learned so much more from writing bad books than by reading other books on the craft or watching tutorial YouTube videos. Anyway, thanks for this post!

  2. Hey Stuart, Thanks for your comment! I really appreciate it. Life is a series of ups and downs, goods and bads. Ultimately, we should do our best, give our all, and believe that we’ll succeed. But if we fall short on our expectations, then we should be kind to ourselves, regroup, and get ready to go again 😊
