Way back in January, I released my latest opus, 60 Beautiful Bat Facts. I couldn’t be prouder of the results, but I’m also the first to admit that the project took a great deal more time and effort than I ever imagined it would. By the time I finished, I was way past exhausted.
Now, two months later, I’m back to my old self and ready to tackle a new project. And while fiction is my first love, I’ve been doing so much ghostwriting for a fiction publisher lately, that I’ve decided I’m going to ignore my pile of fictional projects to the side for a little while longer and tackle another nonfiction project. This one is going to be different:
- The topic is roses, not nearly as polarizing a subject matter as bats
- It’s going to be shorter, I’m shooting for about 30,000 words as opposed to the 70,000 words that make up 60 Beautiful Bat Facts
- To help me stay on track, I’m following the tips and suggestions outlined in Steve Scott’s How to Write a Nonfiction eBook in 21 Days.
- Unlike the bat book, which Ii basically kept secret until a few months before it released, I’m going to post updates and progress reports on my blog and social media accounts.
