The Last Book Update

I finished the 1st draft last month. It came in at a morbidly obese 75,000 words. Double-spaced with size 12 font that comes out to 210 pages. So far I’ve edited 50 of those pages, spending at least three hours a day to do so. Each page takes me 20-25 minutes to edit.
The blog may suffer during this editing process. Posts may arrive at stranger times.

Timeline:

April: Finish the 2nd draft. Send to hand-picked editors. Do my taxes.

May: Decide on a book title (with your help) and create cover. Complete the book.

June: Self-publish. Complete blood vow to never write a book again.

This project has ruined my life, so I will be pleased when it’s over.

“June: Self-publish. Complete blood vow to never write a book again.”

You tell yourself that now, but 6-8 months after your book is published, you’ll come across half a dozen new concepts around which you could write a book. Take it from someone who has been there (on the academic side, but still); once you’ve tasted literary success, you can’t stop. One key thing to remember, however, is that you MUST focus on quality over quantity. You don’t need massive quantities of published works to make a name for yourself. Achieving success with readers is like success with women — keep them wanting more.

i have a question:
do guys decide to act like assholes to girls, after they realize that the prior strategy of just being their nice selves wasn’t working out?
