An author, I am trying to be

I’ve always kinda loved writing. Writing fictional stories was fun up to secondary school – thanks to my fascination with (medieval) fantasy fiction and gamebooks. Argumentative essays were not my forte though – I got a B3 in ‘A’-level General Paper.

So anyway, enough of trying to write a “charming” little backstory (which wasn’t really going anywhere, considering the state of mind I’m in).

These few months you’ll probably see a decreased frequency of posts on this blog, mostly due to my being on assignment writing a book – my very first one. Before you ask: yes, it’s a technical book, and no, I’m not sure if I want to say what it’s about just yet. It’s too early.

I’m going to miss blogging and nights where I don’t have to think about <Insert book subject matter here>. Not that thinking about it is bad (because it is one of my main interests and I am writing a book on it), but I’m wondering how I’m going to keep up with late nights and the inexorable temptation to play one more hour of World of Warcraft (which still hasn’t arrived, but will soon, with any luck).

Stay tuned, don’t go away. I’ll still be blogging.

Good luck, book writing is way too much work, but is worth if for lots of people.

[wonders if the fact that the post is filed under ‘Mozilla’ has anything to do with the book’s subject matter]

Good luck with everything. Resist temptation!

Congrats and good luck! I am working on a book. If we both get published, I’ll swap signed copies with you! :D

That’s fantastic that you are writing a book! I wish I had the time and the focus to be able to write a book… whenever I start writing something, I get distracted and start doing other things. Good luck!

Best of luck buddy! If the book is anything like the quality of writing here, then it’ll be a good read :)

Best of luck with your book. I’m really curious what it is about, but hey, I guess you will fill us in when the “project” is in a later development stadium :-)

Good luck! Once upon a time I also tried to write a book. In fact, it’s not so difficult to write a book. But I lost energy and afflatus these days.
I feel it’s quite nice and medicinal for writing to found a column or weblog to practise.

Best regards!
