I am writing a 520 page academic textbook on business and data security. While I know the subject matter well, laying it out in an academic, teaching context is something I haven’t done in a while.
Of the ten core chapters in the book, I have completed nine of them. I have spent nights, weekends, and days off writing from dawn to dusk and into the night. I began the last chapter yesterday, even while I put the finishing touches on the preceding chapter. I can see the end from here – it’s a foretaste of the accomplishment of writing an important work that will help many others in their search for knowledge.
