I’m writing a book.
With Geoff Livingston.
Yes, the guy who dresses in drag.
But he only does it for charity, so he can’t be all that bad. Right?
We can’t talk about our book.
Imagine that! Bloggers not able to write about what they’re doing.
It’s like cutting off our hands so we can’t type. Well, Geoff says he could type with his nose. So in this scenario, we’d have to cut off his nose, too.
We can tell you it’s not another social media book.
But rest assured, if you read Spin Sucks, you’ll find the book very useful. It’s geared toward you and what you do every day.
But my mom very wisely reminded me that writing a book is a big deal in the real world. And I’ve wanted to write books since I was a kid (you should see my journals). But I’m also an author virgin so Geoff has very kindly agreed to show me the ropes.
Writing with Geoff is pretty exciting to me. Not only do I really like him, he’s smart, funny, and self-deprecating. I’ve been a long-time fan of his blog, where I successfully stalked him until he paid attention to me.
We’ve been working on the process since May and it’s been a great experience. Now, as we get down to the nitty gritty of writing every day, I can only hope we don’t kill one another and we make it to our book tour next summer. We’ve already agreed, that if things get tough, we’ll call a time out.
And now I, too, have written the “I’m writing a book” blog post.
