I'm still shooting for a late 2011/2012 release for my next Blur book. For the most part, it's mostly finished in rough form...I'm just chasing down the last handful of shows I'm due in order to start listening, reviewing, and writing them up for inclusion in the book. However, I have an incredibly busy life right now, even more so than I did the previous 2 years...I still have my job, a house, wife, 4 kids now, and my oldest kids are old enough to have loads of activities. It's all I can do to get a meal and a decent night's sleep, so the book project has lagged a bit. Every time I go to work on it, I tell myself "I'm too tired...I'll do it tomorrow." And of course, more often than not, I don't! I am still so passionate about Blur's music and I want to tell their concert story. Additionally, I have potential interest from two legit publishers, so I want to get this done and done well so I can have a shot at a real book release.
My question, especially for my writer friends, is how do you push through and motivate when a project has dragged on for a while and the impetus wanes, ever so slightly? I'd love to hear any advice!
