I actually got some work done on my book today! Can I get a high five?

Inspired by Valerie, who just published another book, I actually did a bit of work on the book I'm writing today. It was only a few paragraphs, but at least it was something. As most of you know, it's a book about working with difficult children from difficult families. I have published about 20 "scholarly" articles, and one book chapter, but I've never written an entire book. Wish me luck in getting this thing done before 2717, when I pick up my MyLot Porsche. I admit that I lack a bit of discipline when it comes to "serious" writing.

You have to be willing to get started somewhere. A few paragraphs is still something.

You need to set yourself a schedule and stick to it. However, from experience, good luck with THAT!

I find that Pony has shared so many things out here... that parents could do with guidance about. If he were to check his older posts, and write them as a booklet...rewrite of course...since these posts are myLot's content, then many of the issues would be easier for parents to manage.

@TheHorse You set aside 10/15/20 minutes every day and you write. And you let nothing else get in the way. Not Kitty, not flaky teachers, not Vanny - nothing!

@TheHorse at this rate you would be able to write infinite chapters. Yes, people (me also) don't like serious writing. It needs lots of hard work and concentration.

Good that you could do that. I always set up a schedule for my writing and artwork, but then I am not able to stick to that. I lack that discipline.

I hope you make it less technical...and add separately the technical content as a distinct paragraph...if you must. We the non-intelligent folks don't have patience with technical stuff.
