An invitation: On guest posts
with thanks to Bernard
Yesterday’s foolsletter was a guest post by my moustache, Bernard.
I began writing it, but Bernard woke up and took over. It was almost seamless - so much so that there was no disruption to the voice of the writing. Miraculous really.
It was inspiring to let something else do the writing of the foolsletter.
With that in mind, I know that many of you have funny stories. I know many of you would love to be more creative every day.
So, here’s the invite: If you have a funny story to share, between 150 and 500 words, I’d like to invite you to try sharing here. We can collaborate about the story you write AND, you’ll get the incredible stretching experience of sharing with others.
The theme of your story should be moderately light, perhaps funny and ideally human.
I’ve chatted with many of you who have revealed that you might like to write, or have considered writing but don’t know where to begin.
I get it. The notion of sharing silly stories can be intimidating.
It’s great to start somewhere.
So, if you’re interested in writing a guest post here, reply directly to this email and we’ll get a conversation going.
Or, if you don’t want to write but have a funny personal growth / leadership story or idea you’d like to share, we could have a conversation, and I could relate your story to the rest of the fools here.
For many of you this is a challenge - a challenge that leads to growth.
So, step up and step into your creative foolish self.
It’s like the old saying goes:
You don’t grow the moustache, the moustache grows you.
