I finished the bulk of the research for my next non-fiction book. But when I faced the first draft, here’s what happened inside my brain:
1. Great subject.
2. Might be hard.
3. A lot of words.
4. Could be excruciating.
5. This is going to take hours and hours and hours.
6. Lots of interesting stuff.
7. I don’t see how it’s going to tie together.
8. Probably really hard.
9. Maybe if I start with just a paragraph.
10. The intro wasn’t so bad.
Honestly, I may as well have a tooth extracted every time I have to start a new project. I now have a good chunk written, thankfully, and while it doesn’t exactly tie together, it will get there.
