I've decided to write a short blog-type post every week here on this forum. These posts are exclusive to this forum, and they will primarily be about the writing of the book.

I'm wrapping up Chapter 07 this weekend!

In the evenings when the writing is difficult, I try to ignite my muse by partaking in some legitimate distractions. I spend time reading StackOverflow's Git questions. I also spend time playing with the latest Git by building it from source. Another distraction is reading the voluminous git discussion list.

Writing is a very effective way to learn something. On the nights when it's difficult to write even one sentence, I try to make up for it by learning more about Git.

Thank you for reading!
