Lack of Post

Hello Dear Readers, 


I had a post started for today, but I have an engineering conference from 9a-5p so according to my Magic 8-Ball the odds of me putting out a full post today are Not Likely. Or it will be an evening post. We shall see, we shall see. Regardless I shall try to squeeze a couple extra posts in this week, maybe double up or post through the weekend. 



On a fun note: My little blog here surpassed half a million page views this weekend =) Milestone! 


I'll have to think about something fun to post. Like maybe... how my book is coming along, hmmmm. 

I have the Outline laid out. 

I'm wrapping up my writing of the Introduction. 

I have the majority of my text compiled. 

If I were to leave it completely as is, with no edits for length, this book would end up at almost 550 pages long. So as you can imagine, I need to cut that down by almost half. 

A fun tidbit for me. With this blog I have written almost 2300 pages worth of text. Egads!  I keep a spreadsheet with all the posts that I've written, the # of single spaced Word docs., and word count. Obviously I don't include articles I've pulled from elsewhere and things like that. If I did that my Posted page count is closer to 2360. I don't know about you, but I think that's quite a bit of effort I've put into my BPD research. I may not have a psychology degree, but I'm pretty sure I could squeeze out a few thesis papers from that. It certainly helps writing this book a bit easier. Once I have it closer to rough draft form I'll probably start a KickStarter, but in the mean time you can still help me out! Please =) 

It's about time for my conference here. I just wanted to say a big thank you to all my Readers out there. I really appreciate your support. Reading your comments, e-mail, and words of encouragement really does push me and give me the kind of encouragement I need to stay strong with my writing here. 

Cheers and Love,

Haven
