I admit, I’m a little unsure and excited right now about whether I should really hit the “publish” button. I’m writing a book about building services and I can feel the roller coaster of emotions starting again. Writing a book sounds interesting – many people do it – but I’ve never done it before.
Dear readers, I started writing about building technology on this platform almost eight years ago and initially tried to record my knowledge for myself. Over time, I found my own style, wrote detailed and long articles and received wonderful feedback from you.
Throughout the years I have also received requests from magazines, companies and other blogs to write for them. I have found that it is somehow easy for me to write about a particular topic of building technology, if I can deal with the subject. Then in the summer of 2020, I received a request from a publisher:
“Dear Mr. Schlobach, we would like to expand our series on the subject of building services. The following title is what we would like “…” could you imagine writing this book for us?”
I was completely over the moon, was very happy about this request and accepted. Since my acceptance, I have been mainly busy with the writing of this book and the way to the goal, because one thing I can already say:
You don’t just write a book. I’m learning how to write a book, how to deal with my fears, and how to try to type one letter at a time into a document.
Since I have no experience at all in writing books, I decided to report about my process of writing books and document it. I’ll show you solutions that I hope will help me and also show you what didn’t work so well. Maybe you can take something useful from it or share your knowledge in the comments.
Now you have in any case a small overview of what currently keeps me busy and why it has become a little quieter on the blog.
If you have any tips for me on how to write a book or how to get out of the hamster wheel of procrastination, I am looking forward to your comments. I will now continue to write my book and keep you up to date, because the first book you write only once 🙂
Viele Grüße Martin
