I downloaded Barbara's book today and it was very good. I'm looking forward to more of her e-books.

I loved the book, Barbara! Yes it was patterned after the others but this only enforced its benefits.
Your writing for me has always been inspirational. I understand your converting to 'social gatherings' to distribute your wisdom but I sure do miss the written word and wish you'd write more as well!
Looking forward to more ebooks, hard copies - anything we can get :-)

Thanks for your kind words. They make me feel really good. (Just noticed a big grin on my face.)

I write every day for Hanging Out with Barbara Sher over at as part of my latest clandestine efforts to help readers get their real authentic selves back (I secretly call it 'Identity Rehab') and, at their own pace, slowly, with no pressure, realize what they want -- and help them get it. It's a two-year program (though you can start any time, [correction because we changed that: you can only join 3 times a year - this ensures you'll be part of a group that moves at roughly the same pace and keeps the conversations lively] and I come in to answer comments almost every day). I love this project. I even love reading what I write and send out every week.

Until it's finished, I won't be doing much other writing.

But when it is finished, though I will never be able to stop myself from reading and answering the comments (because new, fascinating, smart, warm-hearted people continue joining and starting every week), I'm going to write my next book. (If you were at the teleworkshops about Resistance in August/September, you'll know the subject.)

You'll know all about it in advance if you're on my mailing list - well, sometimes 'in advance' is the day before. (I know I shouldn't do that, but that's how it comes out of my head. Can't seem to help it.) :-)

Thanks, Kashtanka, I want to do that. I have another idea for one:

1) I'd like to gather good stories from Scanners - Success stories, even small ones. Just how Scanners solved any problems that come with being a Scanner. Any Scanner story with a happy ending will do. Even if the solution fell out of the sky.

2) I'll charge 99c for that book, too, and try to get it out into the world as much as possible because I think it will help a lot of Scanners.

What do you think? If you like the idea, help me develop it! Or send a story! How many should we have?

Let's see, I have a bunch of Scanner stories in my books (I Could Do Anything... and Refuse to Choose) and I told some new stories in Hanging Out and in the TEDx talk I did (whenever it goes up!). I'm sure I can use those. Some people haven't read my books yet. :-) Or they've forgotten the stories. Or they love to hear good stories over and over like I do. And I'm hearing new ones all the time, on Facebook, etc.

3) Format: 1 to 3 pages long (that's about 300 to 900 words unless it's really got to be longer, in which case, make it longer!)

4) Categories: Um. I don't know.

- Scanner Clutter:
The easiest, of course, will be different solutions to Scanner Clutter. Where do you put all those projects? There are some great solutions up here already (check NowIKnow - he put photos in his project drawers of the contents!)

- Great Careers for Scanners
The hardest might be 'How I found the right Scanner job for me,' but it would be very interesting. Got to tell the whole story: what you tried that didn't work, how you managed to find something that did work, any advice you want to give.

What other categories could there be? How about

- How to School Critics!' :-)
That is, clever answers to those horrible things thoughtless (or mean) critics always say to Scanners. Not the answers you have in your minds :-) but the ones you can actually say that make them look like jerks. (You know I love making hurtful people look like jerks.)

- How a Scanner can choose (and stick with) a thesis
I wouldn't have suggested that but i already got the answer from someone.

If I use your story I will, of course, send you the free manuscript. But at 99c you might prefer to make the book popular and gain the fame and glory you rightfully deserve!! :-)

Definitely sign your name if you want me to use the story! You don't have to, of course, but if it will help you in any way, go right ahead and do it. Your story will help everyone who reads the book. But don't bother yourself with trying to write literature! Just send a letter and tell a story. I'll ask questions if I need more.

Let's discuss the shape of the project here - more categories, etc. - and maybe you should email your stories to me instead of posting them here. If you want to do it that way just go to the homepage of this site - - and scroll down to the contact button (whatever it says these days) and click on it. Your email will come right into my inbox. And I will enjoy that mightily!

Yummy. I love a new idea. Look how good we'll feel if we complete it! :-) And how much fun we'll have even if we don't.
