My second e-book [a self-help book]

Last Update: October 04, 2020

Hi everyone!

I've been quiet on WA for the past couple of weeks because I have been super busy (in a good way)! In addition to doing a lot of research for a couple of projects/blogs I am working on, I have also been working on a second e-book.

This one is a bit harder because I am writing it from my head and my heart which is a lot harder than putting together info from my blog posts.

I'm actually not entirely sure what I will do with the book once I am finished. What I mean is, I may try to get it published in the traditional way or I may try to put it online as an e-book (Kindle).

In whatever way I do it, I will be ever hopeful that it will actually help people.

A process

Writing this book has been a process that has taken nearly 45 years. I was not always a very helpful person. I'll just leave it at that, for now. Some people might argue that I am still not very helpful!

I'm working on it during the month of October and hope to have the first draft done by the end of the month. I have a couple of chapters nearing completion.

Then it is off to NaNoWriMo so that I can finish the novel I started last November and didn't get more than 2000-3000 words written.

I will be happy if I can get first drafts done for both.

Actually, I will be happy if I don't get that done, too. As a younger person, I would not have been able to say that. If it didn't get done, then I would be depressed.

Anyway, just giving those of you who are interested an update on what is going on with me. I am still writing my blogs, although not as much. I have a couple that need to get published on my diabetes site and others on my grandparents site.

It's all a process and I am happy to be in it!

Good work, Karin .I think about you a lot. That is a good thing- because I really am pulling for you. you are really building up a good head of steam (I don't know where that came from) . I'd like to see your Grandparents website. I'm working on my ancestry and it is fascinating.

Hi, Karin.

Paul Mindra here from Canada.

Thank you for leaving a comment on my current post here on the WA blog: It is valued.

I am not a grand parent yet but appreciate and value what you write on your site.

I see that you are using the 'Hiero' theme from A-Themes as your foundation.

I use only 'Hiero' for all of my websites as it becomes a part of the branding process.

Thank you for giving us an update on what you are doing. If we may be of any assistance in any way, please do not hesitate to reach out.

Kindest regards from a WA friend from Canada.

Paul.

Good Luck Karin. I would love to write a book but finding time and energy to do so would be a miracle at this point. I have several websites and work a full-time job so my time is so full now but I have ideas and maybe one day I'll get there too. Keep on writing!!! Pamela

I am of the belief that you can do anything you set your mind to do, Pamela.

Maybe you should just give National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) a try. The goal is to write 50,000 words (a first draft) of a novel during the month of November.

Best wishes as you continue your journey!
