My book “Turning International” is out! It took me in total almost four years to get it done.
FOUR years? How did I spend 4 years on writing a book!?
+ 1,5. From the idea (on summer vacation 2008) to the moment I sit down to start to write a first page and make the decision that I will work on it everyday, one year and a half have passed. Procrastination and excuses. I have no time yet to write it. Plus the fear to get started.
+ 0.5. About six months spent ordering and reading lots of books, and interviewing people face-by-face and by questionnaires, and organizing my ideas into chapters.
+ 1. One year and a couple of months to write it down. In the first six months, I was unstoppable. Then I started to loose focus. In fact in the meanwhile I thought it would be a good idea to also start a website. And then at the very end, I got sick – cancer – argh! Life has its own plans.
+ 1. And when you think your book will be on the shelves in 3 months or even less, you start to get some feed-back, and take it into account… and more feedback… Editing, editing, editing, then proof-reading, putting the manuscript into shape to send it to a self-publishing provider…. 3, 2, 1.
Hey it’s done! It’s in my hands, right now. It looks so simple. I am so happy it’s finished. Now it will get away from me and belong to my readers.
