Non-Fiction

     I've never been much of a non-fiction guy. I enjoy research, but my first instinct with a book is fiction. I want the escape, the adventure, the immersion in a whole new world. Likewise, I've never thought much about writing a non-fiction book. In a random moment of inspiration I conceived of one, but wasn't sure I wanted to take away from writing fiction. Now a student has got me thinking about writing another non-fiction book. And I'm pretty excited at the prospect. The big question, how to find the time?

Time to take one of those super duper time management classes that all business students end up taking to survive the corporate world? I've been through a few.

I suggest the Stephen Covey stuff for about a year until you work out your own system. Really, this stuff does help out a ton.
