April 13, 2008

That is the number of words I have written on this blog since I started it in July 2006. I just asked Ron (who looks after our web site with speed and professionalism) to extract the material for me so I could start to go through it for the book. That is over 25K a month, the equivalent of two to three articles. OK writing articles requires more effort, and there will be duplication in a lot of the material (although scanning it today less than I thought). Aside from proving to me that I can finish the book (20% of that will do) it also showed that writing in fragments over time, and getting comments back is a better way of working out ideas.
