I'm  sitting across from my new business partner. We've agreed. We're 50/50 owners in a new venture that has 0.9% chance of actually working.

Here's why.

The first thing she wants to do is be the boss. I agree. We fist bump.

The next thing she says is, "I don't know what to do." 

I task her: 'Write the landing page copy for our new web site.'

"I could never do that shit -- right now." -she replies.

"I'm sweaty, it's hot in here. I don't know what to write." - she continues.

"Could you do this right now?" - she asks.


me: "I've got 200wordsaday open right now and I'm starting to write."

her: "Okay, do you care if I sign up for that site right now? Is that 200 the numbers or the words?" 

"It's the numbers -- two; zero; zero. I don't care where you write. Stop talking and get the words out of your mind and into a document — as if you were talking to me . I want to capture them, so type them into your computer." - I clarify.

We both start typing.

I'm typing. She's typing.

"I'm not writing copy, I'm just writing words -- is that okay" -- she says after crushing the keys for several minutes.

I nod as I finish up my  words.
