What I’ve been up to lately
Stephen King cranks out more smash-hit books than one could even think possible. During the process of writing this book, I read Stephen’s pseudo-memoir, “On Writing.” In his work, Stephen outlines his formula for writing meaningful, purposeful books. He suggests that one should make it a goal to finish the first draft within three months; and then let the book sit for about six weeks. That way, when the author picks up the book, it feels fresh and new. This allows the author to read their book without sentences and noise still echoing in their minds.
Right now, I’m in the midst of my six week rest period. In a couple weeks, I’ll be reading my book in its entirety, revising pieces, re-organizing passages and adding more stories to provide a powerful reading experience.
Should I go through a traditional publisher, or self-publish?
I’ll also be working on the design of the book, and whether or not to seek out a publisher, or try to publish the book by myself through Lulu. If you have any suggestions, insights or ideas, feel free to let me know your thoughts.
Thank you very much for your participation thus far in this project, and in the meantime, please feel free to head over to the table of contents and see what I’ve finished thus far. Please feel free to suggest any chapters, points or ideas that you think should be included in the book.
