So, the pattern book. I've mentioned it here before and I'm still plugging away but I'm starting to see why traditional publishing is good. Deadlines! I've gotten to a point where it feels possible to put together all the parts for a book--heck, lots of it is written--but now it's just the slog of getting all the details written for all the patterns, re-taking a lot of photos, doing the layouts and just generally doing. the. work.
Each Friday I try to have coffee with two good friends and we've created something of an accountability group. Each meeting we set a goal for the week and then we check in with each other. This week my goal is a big one--to finish writing up all the patterns I have partially done. Then put them into a nice, laied out format. Wish me luck.
