Writing a book about 708 days of traveling through 40 countries around the world is harder than I thought, but it’s coming, I promise. There’s no way I’d do as much work as I have done over the past four years writing this baby, and not publish it.
I’ve been part of a writing/critiquing group for the past two years, helping me fine-tune what should stay in the book, and what should be left out. Still, I have thousands of words, though what to get rid of? I don’t want to leave out the time Dave had to strip down to his underwear in a grocery store parking lot to find his keys, or when an African policeman told me I needed to get pregnant soon because I was getting too old. I’d hate for you all to miss out on when I blew my front forks hitting a pothole on a bridge deck, or when Dave’s rear tire exploded on a Russian highway.
This is all stuff you want to know, right? So you can see my dilemma in editing! This, really, is what’s causing the dallying delay, but I can’t wait to bring the Riding Full Circle book to you soon(ish).
Please stay tuned and be patient 🙂 Some of you have even paid a deposit—I haven’t forgotten!
I will keep this post updated until the book is ready, so you can share in its progress.
