A Book on Writing?

            Well, in the past few weeks, I’ve been a busy and not-so-busy bee. Personal life is shifting, I’m getting affairs in order, refocusing on the things that matter as I slip further to the inevitable … retirement. That’s still a ways off, and I want to retire early, but I’m doing a lot of personal studying in this manner and self-help. Speaking of self-help…

            Someone I’ve been critiquing for a hot moment has been screaming at me to write a book on writing. So, I’ve been dabbling with the idea. Many folks I’ve reached out to about the subject have been either supportive or optimistically cautious. At one point, it was almost going to be co-authored with a friend of mine. The blog post I did on critiquing really spurred me to explore this idea. I’ve been fiddling with it ever since. I’m not saying to expect a book, but it seems likely at this point. And if I do, critiquing will make up a good chunk of it.  

            As with all my projects, writing the first-third is difficult for me. This news should come as no surprise, I’ve set aside the sequel for The Demon’s Fate at this time. However, some good in the bleakness, I managed to write a significant chunk before closing it out for the meantime. If I recall, the first 25k words are ‘in the books.’ 

            Well, that’s all I got this time…

…And I’m back! This will be short, so let’s dive right in.
