As the title implies, I'm writing a book! An e-book to be exact. Maybe I should have chosen a picture of computer code. One of my closest friends inspired me with the idea. My whole life I've dreamed about being an author, but kind of lost the dream when I realized how expensive it can be to publish a book. Also, I became disenchanted with the process when I heard about editors who demand changes to plot, publishers who pick their own covers, etc. But writing an e-book is a little different. It's self publishing without a lot of the headache.
I'm still in the early stages of brainstorming, outlining, and setting up the form of the book. The more work and time I put in, the more I realize I need a deadline, a cut off date. My book will be done March 1st. This gives me a little over a month to finish. A due date is a big commitment. I'm a procrastinator in the name of perfection.
Guess I should get to work...
