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.

When I was having early discussions on the book, I entertained the idea of not telling my wife, Jenn, and my daughter, Mia, that I was writing a book. I thought I would just write this in the evening, and they would be none the wiser. Needless to say, that would have been a terrible mistake.

When I get home from my day-job, I almost always turn to the book. Am I writing? Am I revising? Am I writing this BLOG? My wife and daughter remind me, by their presence, and sometimes verbally, that there is a bigger picture. My wife has encouraged me and has been a gentle sounding board.

I've not needed to take time away from them to work on this book, but when I do dive into it, they understand. For that, I'm deeply grateful.
