As of this moment, I have the rough draft of the first two sections (Physiological and Safety Needs) done, and a decent amount of progress on the first section of the Love and Belonging needs. 

Total word count thus far: 28,000 (a little over 100 pages worth). Wow, that's more words than I thought!

I'm trying to make this book as short as possible, but I don't know how I can make it less than 250 pages. Well, we'll see how it goes. I want to be ruthless with the editing to make sure it's as succinct as possible.

My super conservative estimate is that this will be completely finished in six months. I generally way overestimate how quickly I can do things, so I'm trying to go the opposite direction... (I really want to have this finished in closer to four months if not sooner).

I can't imagine anyone going this high before my first published book. But you know what they say, "Shoot for the moon, even if you miss, you'll die in the vacuum of space millions of light years away from the nearest non-sun star."


But if $100 isn't much to you and you're intuition is strongly calling you to have open access to me, this level may be for you.


Not only will you see all my work as it's evolving, but you will be able to influence how it turns out by commenting and giving feedback as it's being written. With this intimate back and forth, we'll probably become friends (as long as you're not a stalker! o_O).
