The final chapter

I am please to announce that I have added the final chapter to book two and I met my promise of finishing the book content by the end of April. This final chapter is bold and different from all the other chapters. It’s full of surprises, but don’t cheat! Make sure you read your way through the Technojungle safari to get to it. No taking shortcuts. The path is clear.

So, what next you may be asking? Well, I have some work to do on the images and the backtracks. I also want to finish the glossary which I shall add to this website even though my revised plan was to move it to the workbook which is obviously down the road. I will be working on these aspects in the coming months.

I also have in mind to do eBooks and have them ready by November, but that may be a bit ambitious at this point, so don’t hold me to it. It’s not a promise at this time.

Please enjoy these two books.

The book update

In a busy noisy world, projects in my life often find their way to the top of the list at various times while other may fall back. I have many projects going, it seems, and one is to get my book edited. This has turned out to be an even greater job than writing the book. I have been doing other daily writing, and some of what I have written may find it’s way to this blog. I also have been playing music. I play cornet in several bands, two of which I run.

With limited spare time to accomplish tasks for projects in my life, I decided to turn the time and energy I have available for this Technojungle project toward working on the book. I do a bit everyday and it moves along. Being my first book, I don’t actually know how to go about the project. I managed to get the book written. Then I realized that I needed to come up with an editing plan. I have some background in publishing had an inclination as to how I could have volunteers read and edit the sections. I realized that the editing was going to be a huge task, however, I may have misestimated just how long this might take. I circulated the section several times to several people and incorporated their suggestions, comments and edits into a new version for each circulation.

A project such as this could end up in an endless path of editing to an unreachable perfection. Knowing when to stop will certainly be an interesting time. I remember the day and the feeling when I decided that the book was written and it was time to start to consider the editing process.

While I may end up with more actual editing—well I am still editing, I suppose—I need to come up with a few images to scatter through the book in places I have indicated. I am also considering a glossary. So the project marches on at a somewhat steady pace. When it will be completed, I am not actually sure.

As of today, I am working on how to produce a glossary for the book. I think I have figured out a way, but it will take time to do. The idea of doing an index also crossed my mind, but that seems to be a specialized field. There are people whose only job is to create indexes. Some of these people specialize in particular genres. Indexing has been described and a profession a craft and even an art. I didn’t realize this, so an index shall have to wait. I do think that having a glossary will be useful and may assist in the creation of an index down the road.

Thus it is that, with this article, I am back to blogging for the Technojungle Project.
