So progress has been made with my book. I completed the writing, editing, and rewriting. I even managed to design a cover and get it into a format that could be uploaded (much more difficult than I had anticipated). I test-ran the book with a few people – they loved it. Looking good!
Just when I thought I was ready to hit “publish,” a reader pointed out something in the book that may cause me troubles down the road. The details are not important, but it will cause a delay in publication. Not only is this a pain, the hassle is compounded as this causes a delay in other things I need to do – market the book, (learn how to) create a website, create and maintain a related blog, and write more books.
So, while I feel I am being tested, their really is no temptation to quit – what would I do? This book is a part of my DMP. If I was to quit, I would just stagnate and get frustrated until I returned and completed what was necessary – losing whatever time I had spent in limbo. Although I am being tested, I will persist until I succeed.
I trust your journey is going well, thanks for reading!
