I just can't make the commitment to finish a book, I can start one at the drop of a hat.
I know how you feel, Johnny. Whenever I get the urge to write an article, I start by creating an empty text document on my computer desktop, with a title. After a while, the urge to write about it goes away and I erase it, having never written a word.
A recent article came out about the bill that just passed, allowing Americans to be indefinitely detained. So, of course, there is an empty text file on my desktop that reads: "Take My Rights... Please!"
At least this time, I actually wrote the first sentences to the article... : "Attention ladies, gentlemen and future enemy combatants, we have reached the end of the slippery slope. You may exit now and as always, we hope you enjoyed your trip on the final voyage of the U.S. Constitution."
I thought it sounded good, and I have so many ideas for how to progress with it. But, I doubt that I will write another word.
But, for those that get further in their thinking, there is a program, originally produced for writers, that I have mentioned in another post on the forum. It is called Freemind...http://freemind.sourceforge.net
It allows you to produce a freeform outline that you can link anyway you please... to graphics, to web pages, to... well, anything. Right now, I use it to keep track of projects and ideas for the ranch. As I said, it was originally made for writers. But, it can organize just about anything you can think of. It's a fantastic program, and it's free and that makes it worth every penny you spent on it!
Lest I forget, there is also an ebook management program out there (that Johnny Max himself has talked about in the podcast) called Calibre'. Among many other things, it allows you to convert various formats into other formats (like .pdf to Kindle and others).http://calibre-ebook.com/
