Me write a book? I have been blogging for over ten years now. Most of it has been real estate related with the last year my Spiritual writing increased significantly.
Like my Real Estate writing, I was pretty confident that the material I was writing for my Spiritual side was just going out the out to the Internet to help whomever needs it when they are looking for it.
I recognize that the book has been waiting to come from me for some time. I just have to let go and let it flow. It is ok if it isn’t perfect the first draft.
Two weeks ago I ran into a local publisher, Mark Donnelly — he just looked at me and said is that book ready? Last week I came up with the outline. Sounds easy, but trust me if you have seen a slowdown in my posts you now know why. I worked and reworked that outline countless times. I was so proud of that outline. Today — the book format looks nothing like it. What I have so far is so much better…
All last week I spent pulling together content, which resulted in 28 pages. I have to admit I am hard on myself. I wanted the book to be completed. Here is where patience once again is going to test me. This is a process. One of which that evolves over time and we find a way etch it out.
After reviewing what I had with Mark I am now at 68 pages of what I will lovingly refer to as a hot mess of ideas going in every direction but the direction I want. It is both easy and exasperating at the same time. What started as one book outline has turned into one book in working form and two other book ideas stored away for later.
