The Contractual Obligation

At a party earlier today, I was describing to someone the mechanics of royalties and advances. As if I was some expert on the subject!

I pulled out my book contract just now, to remind myself about royalties and advances. I suppose this was some form of mild procrastination, but it was helpful to me to be reminded of this simple fact: I’m obligated to write this book. I signed a legal document saying I would.

The book is almost a third of the way done. I’m not anywhere near finished but I know that my current schedule can get me there. And even though maintaining this schedule is somewhat arduous, I’m obligated to do it.

More chapters of the book are now available. If people have comments I’m happy to receive them either through this forum or via e-mail. Drop me a line and Thank You for reading!
