My Git Book Writing Blog


When I first spoke with Mike Stephens (Associate Publisher at Manning) about this book, he said that as long as I could produce 7-10 pages a week, I’d meet the book’s schedule. I remember thinking “I got this. No problemo.”

Of course, now that I’m in the thick of things, I’m realizing that 7-10 pages a week is not as easy as it originally sounded. In order to write that many pages, I have to write every night. Every night.

I try to produce at least one or two pages each evening. Some nights are easier, and some nights are difficult. And some nights I just take a break! But I try to keep those breaks infrequent.

As I type this, I’m starting Chapter 7, trying to get in the quota. Thanks for reading. And your patience!
