It’s funny how the grand picture in our heads gets us to think we can do anything. In a perfect world we have time to work on all our projects, work our jobs, and do everything we want to do with our lives. The reality is that even with time management, we’re limited in what we can accomplish.
I now bring your attention to this post in which I talked about the benefits of Self-Publishing. I posed a simple question: Can you have your cake and eat it too? My answer was a resounding ‘yes’ and I said how I am going to write a second book that will be pre-determined for self-publishing. That hasn’t quite worked out for me, or at least not yet.
I’ve been working hard to make time to write and get as close to my 3k per-week word goal on Loopback. In doing this, I’ve already made the decision on some level that this second book will not be written any time soon. As it is, I will need to balance this WIP and Spirit Hackers once I delve back into editing that based on my beta feedback.
The prospects and excitement of self-publishing are really exciting and I haven’t given up on it but I also want to produce quality work that people would want to buy. For the greater good, I am focusing my creativity into Loopback and seeing where it takes me. When the opportunity presents itself for this other book to start its life, I’ll be ready.
