Balmain Tigers Book Writing Simple Plan

It is far too easy to complicate a long process and a simple approach can get the job done well. Working on my two Balmain Tigers books on a daily basis or close to it is all I need. It only needs to be one hour a day, but that regular contribution will steadily build the books. I have thought and said this in the past, yet here I am saying it again. Moving forward I need to keep my focus on this strategy, and it will reduce unnecessary pressure and expectations.

February Balmain Tigers Book Writing Update

Writing two Balmain Tigers books simultaneously continues to remind me to be guarded with a completion date. It is twice the work and my pace has consistently been slower than I expected. I'm fact checking each manuscript at the moment and the process has to be meticulous. All I can do is keep grinding away, and bit by bit this stage of the process will eventually reach completion. The next stage is easier and that's comforting to know. I wish I could make it all happen sooner, but I'm sure I'll appreciate it very much when both books are finally in-print.

January Balmain Tigers Book Writing Update

Public holidays and some annual leave has helped make January 2020 a productive month working on my two Balmain Tigers books. I try not to set expected completion targets, but I'm hopeful and a bit confident that both books will go live close to June.

December Balmain Tigers Book Writing Update

I had some good momentum working on my two Balmain Tigers books until a toothache stopped me. It turned out I had a tooth infection and it was surprisingly debilitating. As a result the last twelve days of December 2019 contained no book work. I'm very close to full health and I'm keen to pick up the pace as soon as possible.

Deleting Amazon Reviews Written by Me

About seven years ago I made it to the top 10,000 Amazon customer reviewers list, and it was pleasing to be in the company of some talented people. I received some requests for me to review books, and on most occasions I was happy to do so. After some careful consideration I have deleted all of the Amazon reviews I wrote. I certainly encourage people to write reviews, but I would like my books and this blog to be my public voice.
