I am struggling with which piece to present at the workshop. I have tons of stuff from the book but which one to present. The end game is that I get feedback on readability and understanding. The content seems to be good — at least that is what everyone who reads it tells me. A friend recommend I put up the introduction to my book. Someone else suggested that I refined the intro to include why right the book in the first place. I explain how it came about but not why I wanted to pursue it. That makes some sense.
The other piece I was thinking about was The Power Law Nature of Creative Endevors. This will be the intro to the Lies My Gannt Chart Told Me book once Silver Bullets gets published. It is kind of funny because the prof talked about getting published as being random and that all you need to do is work at it and put yourself out there. He is right about that. If I put the Power Law piece up I wonder how it will be received. Everyone seems to be in the class to become a writer, as a profession or to make some money on the side. It would be interesting to get feedback on that.
The other piece I was thinking about was the Resistance is Futile piece which seems to flow better than the Power Law on. I guess I should read both and figure out the first one to submit. The rules are that it cannot be more than 4 pages. Seems reasonable.
