Since some of you have been asking, the book is about halfway done! (Which is good since I have a month left before school starts back up again…)
I think I have all the research I need for the rest of it. A few friends have read the different chapters so far, so I’m getting useful feedback from different places. I have a title. I love the title. I’m not telling you the title.
Random note: I have no idea how other bloggers write books. I’ve found it virtually impossible to write during the day because there are too many distractions and other emails to address. I could leave my house, but then I’d have to put on pants. I could disconnect from the Internet, but I need to get online to do research and look things up, so that’s not really an option. I suppose I could find the willpower to just disconnect from Gmail… but we all know that’s not happening.
So I’ve been writing most of this book late at night when everybody else seems to be sleeping. Fewer distractions. Lots of time to concentrate. I’m better able to focus. And then I just pass out when the sun comes up. (Ah, the joys of being a teacher on break.)
But seriously. I don’t know how other people do it. Especially when they have real jobs and kids and lives.
