Book writing in pause mode… time to hit the ‘play’ button?

After two weeks of consternation and promising myself that “I’ll start writing from today”, I am finally admitting that the book writing has hit the pause mode. To motivate myself, I started reading a chapter I had written about two months ago. It was a lengthy read – funny, but long. So I took a pen and started slashing away words, sentences, paragraphs, and finally entire sections. I am still not sure if a pen is mightier than a sword or not, but I certainly used my pen like one today! I had first hand experience of what ruthless book editing could be.

On a positive note, a co-worker showed me a book that one of his friends has recently self-published. If her friend can do it, so can I.
