I'm starting to feel like I need to put the book project on the backburner. On one hand, this makes me feel exceptionally shitty, but on the other hand, it frees me from feeling exceptionally shitty most of the time for not doing anything with it.
The problem is simple. I just generally feel when I look around at my world that writing the book right now is not the thing that best serves me. It doesn't have certain and tangible benefits that I feel are within reach. The other things that hold my interest right now, like the other site projects, bicycling and what not, seem more beneficial to me in the long run, both financially and emotionally.
The plan for now is to just let it sit for the time being. I think I'd like to go back to it, perhaps when there's a new release of the platform or something, but I can't keep convincing myself that I can pull it together when I'm just not into it.
