Given current events, we might not all be feeling as motivated or as productive as we were just a few weeks ago (maybe more). But you're probably working on something really awesome and we'd love to hear about it!
What are you working on right now? How are you maintaining your focus? Tell us about your project (and add links if you want to)!
I'll go first:
I'm working on two books right now. (I know!) One is a translation of a book I released two months ago called The Developer's Guide to Content Creation. The translated version is in Brazilian Portuguese and is being done by a developer and an agency in Brazil. I'm really excited for it to be released in April.
The second one is a brand new book with all-new content. It's called The Developer's Guide to Book Publishing and is meant to help developers navigate traditional publishing and self-publishing. I started writing it in February and shared a progress report on Twitter recently.
Staying motivated. It hasn't been easy. For one, I wrote my first book in 11 days and did everything—writing to editing to book design to release—in just six weeks. I didn't take a break between both books, which I should have! Then everything with COVID-19 happened, and it has been hard to concentrate. I'm working to be more patient with myself. I even pushed back the release date by a month to give myself the space to do a great job without stretching myself thin. But the good news is I'm feeling a little bit better every day. These projects mean a lot to me and even though it might seem that they don't matter in the face of our new reality, they absolutely do.
Our projects matter. :)
Looking forward to learning about what you're working on!
