Relentless; A good word…
You may have noticed my web postings have been more quiet of late, especially here on the weblog. I’m currently wrapping up the writing for my current book project on photographing in Northern California. Writing has been relentless. Self-editing has been relentless. Fact checking (a.k.a. “Righting”) has been relentless. I just want to give a special shout out to my Father-in-Law, Richard, for his help with editing, my wife, Connie, who’s incorporating the changes into the manuscript, and to Laurent, the publisher, for his patience and understanding as we bring this baby home.
If someone asks me, what advice do I have for others who might want to do something similar? Simple. Consider how much time you think it will take you, then double it. Then triple that amount. Why? It’s beginning to seem pretty consistent; everything feels like it takes about 5 times longer than I thought it would.
So what can you do about it? Also, simple. Just keep moving forward. Relentlessly.
