In June, I shared some of my thoughts about writing a cookbook. I worked diligently for a few weeks and then got wound up in being in the yard and the garden. The cookbook once again went on the back burner while I thought about what direction I wanted to take things and what I really wanted to do with it.
Fast forward about ten months, and a lot has changed. I resigned from my job, started working to build my handmade card business, and started focusing on my art and creativity as a way to build income into our lives. Part of that creativity is writing and as it ebbs and flows, so does my desire to pour myself into a large writing project.
Over the past month, I've spent some time deciding on a reboot and what that would look like to merge the two original books into one. I've been on the fence about this decision, but finally bit the bullet and merged most of the two books together. There is a section of mixes from book two that will be moving into a separate book.
There will be a ton of editing ahead as I work through this project. I'll be working to make the recipes more complete and adding headnotes to each of them. This process will be a bit slower than I originally thought, as I am starting a new job this week. While it's part-time it will take a bit away from my focus on this project. I'm back to building a list of priorities and changing my daily routines again.
My goal is to have edits completed by June 1st. We'll see if I can make that goal happen. Happy Monday!
