Why This Blog Still Exists

There are two philosophies about sharing your ambitions. One is that you should keep them to yourself, or you will "jinx" them. The other philosophy is that you should share your ambitions so that you can benefit from the encouragement and criticism of your peers.

I have muscled myself into the latter category, although I am far more comfortable in the former. I find that I accomplish more that way, if only because the shame of public failure is a fantastic motivator. That's why this blog came into existence. I was going to shut it down, but something new has come up to justify its existence.

So here goes.

I'm sort of writing a book. As in a "for real" book. As in there's an acquisitions editor involved. I am miles away from a contract. Pulling together a proper book proposal is intimidating. I may very well bollocks the whole thing.

But there, I said it.
