This book is getting in my way, literally (or should I say literaturely). I’ve physically posted the remaining chapters of my book on the edge of my desk. It’s a constant reminder of my remaining work, but it also acts as a measure of my progress to the end.
I am on the home stretch for a release date in April since I am horrible at finishing things. I have to play all these games for me to finish a task, especially writing. I really enjoy doing it, but my mind wanders when I see a picture on the wall looking uneven and suddenly I’m rearranging everything my apartment.
I haven’t been doing much riding, although I want to explore the beautiful northwest. I am too fixated on my past journey and I can’t focus on even a short day trip without putting this to rest. The rainy days here in Portland make it easy to stay in and write though. It’s a sock soaking blessing.
Writing this book has been a great journey for me, and I hope others can experience the actual journey through my writing.
Thanks for being patient everyone. Things have been quite around here, and they will continue until I’ve got this off my back. I am really excited to unveil it to everyone. This has been a work in progress for almost two years.
Is that right? Two years? I got back from Latin America in March of 2011, and the book will be done in March of 2013, so yea. Two years. I don’t think I would have appreciated or remembered the valuable things I learned on the road if I did not write this book. It’s been a great journey for me, and I hope others can experience the actual journey through my writing.
If you are itching for some adventure, check out my photography section. I’ve updated it with photos that will eventually be integrated into the electronic versions of the book.
You are busy, and there’s a good chance you’ll forget to check back, so save yourself the trouble and sign up here to be notified when you can read, Anxiety Across the Americas, my solo journey across Central and South America by motorcycle.
