The pre-write

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.
