I now have 270 pages and 54,768 words, with still one major chapter to complete. I don’t want to cut any corners with this; I really want to set a benchmark with my first book.
This has been a tough journey, trying to find the time to write regularly. My wife and friends are complaining, asking when my book will be finished. Oh well, there’s only so much I can do. Maybe I was a bit too ambitious with the goal to finish the book in 5 months while working and parenting full time. I also hadn’t thought I’d end up with close to 60,000 words by now.
After revisiting many parts of Clinics in the Cloud, I’ve decided to include some new material and take out others. The final stretch seems as hard as starting to write a book.
I’ve had trouble finding a good editor – someone with experience with businesses in private practice. Still looking, but it looks unlikely.
By the way, thank you to everyone who pre-purchased at the APA Conference in October. It is really cool to see so much interest in my book.
