Diary of a non-fiction book: week 3 – day 2

I don’t know. You wait all week for a blog post, and then three come along at once …

I didn’t get much done on the non-fiction book last week other than research. I’m very much at the research stage as it’s not really a subject I’d consider myself an expert on – other than eating chocolate, that is.

But I have several books to read on various topics I’ll be covering in the book, and I’m still ploughing my way through those.

Last week, on the last day I was able to do some actual work on this, what I really did was alternate reading a chapter of the current research book I’m reading with editing a chapter of the current client-edit I’m in the middle of.

So, rather than keep on writing blog posts that just say things like “spent the entire day reading”, I’ll post when there’s something a bit more exciting to share.

The keen-eyed will spot that the title of this post is still week 3, which was last week. That’s because I’ll be posting this week’s after today.

This week I will be busy on the non-fiction. On Wednesday I have another day in the archives in Birmingham, and I have a little prep work to do before I go. (I’ll put that in the week 4, day 1 post.) And, using one of the books I’ve recently finished reading and reviewing, I’ll be writing my timetable too.

Hopefully this little pit-stop will let you know that I’m still very busy on the project in hand. And hopefully I’ll have plenty more to report later in the week.

please leave your reply here - thank you!
