Ask An Author: Ken Rabow, Part 7
Ken Rabow is a life empowerment coach and the author of The Slacker’s Guide to Success, a book designed to help teens and young adults discover their strengths. In this multi-part interview, he talks about his philosophies, writing process, favourite books and more.
When working on a book, do you keep a writing schedule? Do you write a certain amount every day? At a specific time?
Yes. Yes. Yes. I find early morning work best for me these days. I choose to do at least 30 minutes a day with a maximum of 2 to 3 hours if I’m on a roll.
On a bad day I try to just get five minutes done and there are some days where I just say f’get-about-it. (That’s okay too if it’s not too often.) I always have a notepad (on my iPhone) available if an idea comes to me during the day. I write it down immediately and then leave working on it until the next time I sit down to write.
The Slacker’s Guide to Success is out now.
