Today, I just got the first indication that my book, “The Slow Manifesto,” is a serious idea (not an original one, but a serious one).
Without any provocation, other than perhaps I know him, fellow copywriter (legendary) John Forde included a piece of my “Manifesto” in his popular newsletter for copywriters… The Copywriter’s Roundtable (if you write direct response copy, I suggest you subscribe immediately).
He’s mentioned it to thousands of people, and folks, that makes this book I’m writing real… very real.
Anyone who knows me, knows that I am a VERY humble person, and getting into the “spotlight” is not one of the things I focus on. So, I’m going to slow down a little, and write this book so that whomever picks up a copy will surely be inspired to slow down as well. 🙂
Not that I wasn’t writing it for that effect before… but now there is a little more “light” on the subject.
It’s the least I can do, now that this project has made its first leap into the light.
