Going Beyond Ideas to Action

book

Lots of people talk about writing books…but few of us ever do the hard work of putting pen to paper.

Well, my brother Greg Curhan did. He had an idea swirling around in his head about a thriller set in Los Angeles during the Rodney King riots. And instead if musing about it. He wrote it down, and then instead of waiting for someone to want to publish it, he published it himself with the help of Kickstarter.

Kickstarter is an interesting concept where friends, family, even complete strangers can help fund independent creative projects.

The book is called Indomitable Spirit, it’s available on Amazon.com and it’s a damned good read. You might think as his sister I’m a bit biased, but I’m actually a pretty discerning reader and it really is very good.

My brother’s actions got me thinking again about what separates the dreamers from the doers.
