Just finished a first draft mockup for the book cover for The Day Before, a Dragon Core novel.
I finished the first draft of The Day Before last night just before dinner.
It was a much needed break from the intensity of Calcium: Mineral, Metal, Electrolyte which is the first nonfiction work I’ve done outside a blog entry in years.
It’s the inaugural Data Sheet, shorter works that are topic specific nonfiction pieces.
Inside Outside. As I was about to type that nonfiction is more difficult than fiction I paused. There is an exception. My doctoral thesis was not as challenging as the nonfiction books I’ve written and not because of length. Nonfiction books targeted at a specific market are a far cry from a thesis which is ostensibly waxing poetic about a subject near and dear to your heart, one you are not only passionate about but are willing to defend.
It isn’t easy reopening a chapter that I’d closed out but since the book isn’t finished I know it’s appropriate.
I may not have EMF Sensitivity but I’m still learning about the impact of EMs on health and well-being and I did discover a cure for pressure-induced migraines.
I am passionate about helping others.
The hardest part is dealing with the memory of difficult times.
Though at this point it’s more like hitting a bruise than ripping off a scab.
The benefit to releasing the upcoming Data Sheet is not only do I get to help others, which really makes me feel good, I get a much needed break from the first draft of the novel.
It is important to set the story aside for a few weeks after which I come back with fresh eyes.
I’m pleased with how the Data Sheet focused on calcium and its effect on health and well-being is coming along.
It’s too early to give a release date beyond late summer/early fall 2021.
