And I did a basic “brain dump” of what I feel is the most important information to pass along about the Top 10 Things I Wish They’d Told Me About Concussion(s). I basically wrote a short book – an eBook, really. I’m not sure if I’m going to make a print version. Maybe I will. With space for notes.
It felt good to spend the day just writing. It’s been a long time since I last did that. I had to take care of a couple of things in the afternoon, but I put in some good time, and I’m happy with the result. I’m posting the chapters, one by one, and I’ll post a link to the book when I’m satisfied with it.
The main thing I did, which was important, was actually finishing the work before I walked away. I have a bad habit of diving into something, then getting tired and getting distracted and walking away… never to return.
I did NOT want to do that, this time, so I just stuck with it. I tuckered myself out, but good. But it was worth it.
This is the new way I am doing things, now. I have less time available to me, so I have to make choices. And I know that if I walk away from something, I might never come back. So…
I’ll have a number of different options for people to buy. I’ll put it on Amazon, and I’ll also post it with Lulu and Kindle and other places, so people can get to it. Also, I’ll offer a couple of different prices for folks who want to support the blog. And of course I’ll have a PDF and an ePub version that people can download for free, if they are really short on money.
I’ve been there. I know what it’s like to have to choose between food and non-negotiable necessities like rent and medicine. And people with TBI frequently have to make exactly those choices.
So, there it is, my work for the weekend. It was a busy one, but it was good. I’m settling in at my job and getting used to my new routine.
It’s all good.
