Due to the full-time focus on completing my book, this website unfortunately suffered from lack of updates. I'm playing catch up now, so this post will cover some miscellaneous tweets from April that didn't require additional commentary from me. These will not be searchable by categories, but are still worthy of exploring if there is anything of interest to you. Click away! Links are embedded.
I'm actually writing and back dating this two weeks after the fact because it has taken me this long to actually realize and come to terms with this milestone (add business travel last week too). On April 29, 2015, I passed in my entire manuscript to my publisher. What a grueling, yet meaningful experience. A book project is a lot harder than I thought it was going to be, but one I would always encourage others to try. The last six months of working sometimes six, sometimes seven days a week is what it took to get the job done. Day-to-day progress seemed slow but somehow each chapter was completed in its due course. There's still a lot more work to do--editing through all the board reviews, graphics, appendix, endnotes, index, etc...They all seem much less overwhelming now that the manuscript is submitted. I'm not big about celebrating my own personal accomplishments, but this post is one way to do it. Since I have shared so much of this writing journey with you, the least I could do was to finish it. Breathing a huge sigh of relief now, hopefully not too prematurely!
So true. Learning this lesson (again) serves as a great reminder. As much as people want to see and know where things are going, there is no way to appreciate certain journeys until you've experienced them first-hand. There is no denying that learning by doing is profound. As I quoted one of my clients in the book, "I don't think any amount of preparation ahead of time would have made a difference. We couldn't know how deep it was going to go until we got there."
