Easy to build content in 2019

It is an amazing day and age we live in. The raw ability to create new things has never been easier. Today we can use a simple web program to build a 3D model. We can take that 3D model and feed it into a 3D printer. We can then use a number of cheap items from the dollar store, and build a full relevant to our books. In addition, we can build audio and print books exceedingly easy. We can hire good editors a narrators at an extremely fair price. This means that creating a new book has never been easier. I am grateful for the potential 2019 now has. Even this article was written with a speech to text editor, making it very simple to produce. What a wonderful age to live in!

Excited about 2019

As the new year starts, I'm reminded of all the progress I made in the past year. I was able to write a new book, the first in several years. I was able to post a number of articles online and sell a number of articles. I changed my website to be practically free. And I was able to get Christmas gifts towards building a writing lab. I'm very grateful for the progress I've made this year, and I'm looking forward to making more progress next year. I enjoy the adventure of writing, and the freedom it provides. Excited about 2019!

Time is long and time is short

Thinking about the amount of years I have until retirement feel like time is very long. In the same instance, the amount of time before all the due dates is very short. There's a discrepancy somewhere in there. Psy overestimate what I can do in the short term and underestimate what I can do in the long term. I suppose the biggest objective one can reach at any given time is balance between work and play. How do you know you get there though? Does it just become a feeling of balance? I'm not sure, and I'll have to figure this out.

Importance of legacy

I think the importance of writing is not just to write well. I don't think that the ultimate goal is to have a perfect book. Instead it's about living a dream. About taking a step that many find scary. I think there's some honor or bravery and taking that step. And I think it's worthwhile to put something out there that will last for a little bit. I don't know if anyone will read this blog, or any of my books, and that's fine. At least I was willing to go ahead and try. And in the end that's infinitely better than doing nothing at all. And that's why I'm happy with the effort. Because any effort beats no effort.

New Location, New Price

I am moving my website from GoDaddy (who was charging ~$7 a month) to a free service. I decided this was better because it would allow me to continue this blogging effort without worrying about interruption (which has happened recently).

I will be fixing links and a bunch of other things as I can. More to come soon!
