As the old saying goes, “when it rains it pours.” I have a lot going on in my life and honestly there isn’t anything that I would change. I am coming up on one year at the hospital where I serve as chaplain, I am still preaching every Sunday at a small DOC congregation, I have two wonderful kids with one on the way and on top of all of that… I am writing a book, something that I have always wanted to do.
Needless to say things can be a bit hectic… schedules overlap, the daylight runs out and the to-do list is ever growing; there are plans to be made, commitments to keep and life to live. I have been working feverishly on the book. Thanks to the internet I can access my manuscript from anywhere. I have been organizing my thoughts and ideas on the fly thanks to Evernote.
The publisher set the deadline for the final manuscript for September 30; I have pushed that timeline up to September 1 to give myself most of the month of September to edit, refine, tweak and run spell check about 76 times. Did I mention that my beautiful wife is pregnant and is due at the end of August? Yep… I’m battling two due dates.
Today marks 100 days until September 1 and things are going well.
It’s starting to become a bit more real; I have been working on table of contents, getting various permissions, setting up interviews taking head shots and the like.
It will be a busy and exciting time. I will be posting updates here and on Twitter (and maybe Facebook… an author page might be in the works).
Thanks for your support and happy reading!
