Alright, it’s about time that I spill the beans. I’ve been working on a “secret project” for quite a while now but since it’s been at a standstill for the past two and a half years I think it’s safe for me to just throw it out there. I’ve been writing a book!

Back in December of 2014 I got the idea to write a book about how to make and run a blog. I get asked by so many people about how to do it and I figured it would be more helpful is I simply spit up all the information I have on paper, organize it, polish it up, and maybe make a few bucks off of it.
So in December I wrote a good first draft of my book. I got the bones down and even got a second draft down. Since then I’ve been meaning to flesh out the book more and prepare it for ebook publication but add more content to the book has been trickier than I expected. It’s still something to this day that I’m trying to build up motivation to work on.
I’m not sure what I hoped to accomplish by writing a post about how I’m (not) writing a book. Maybe if I put it out there for the world I’ll hold myself a little more accountable for getting it finished. I feel like publishing a book would be such an amazing accomplishment for me. My goal with it now is to at least get a third draft done by the end of the year so we’ll see how it goes! (though with cosmetology school around the corner I may have to leave my book on hold for a little longer…)
