It’s a good thing we don’t know what’s laid out for us. If someone had told me it would take me two years to write my first book, I would never have started. Ignorance is bliss. It’s been an interesting journey so far. I have discovered something that no “How to Write a Book” book ever taught me: I have a pattern of when I write. I guess that’s the upside of a two year gestation! I am a Winter and Bad Weather writer. When the sun shines, I want to be outside, not inside slaving over a recalcitrant computer. So I blame the Good Summer of 2014 for my delay, and I blame the Bad Summer of 2015 for lack of motivation. Anyway, one way or another, I am just finished the book except for a couple of edits to input. At 35000 words, it is a short non-fiction book (the average word count is 60-70000 words) so I have decided to go down the digital self-publishing route. I know absolutely nothing about this so my first port of call was the library, of course. I am on a steep learning curve, between Editing DNS functions and cats walking on my keyboard when they want my attention. But today is a good day, because I made a start on my new blog (it was a Bad Weather day, thank God!). Stay tuned for more chat and find out What It’s Called and What It’s About!
