I did this and a few others just so I could put the book writing thing behind me. None are “THE BOOK” but I know the process now. Only step left is marketing if I want it to be a SELLING book or books.

I translated Pride and Prejudice into my own grammatically correct language, “Blah”.

Two people ACTUALLY bought it and got just what it said it was, according. My proudest 1 star. Best worst reviews.

====

This one was a note to my future self – August 25, 2015 – in case I forgot and started taking information-as-if-weightless. Information is not weightless.

=====

Oh, and on the Internet Archive.

I did all of this within one hour after the original post, showing how storage, transfer, etc renders all information as having weight.

=====

Nope Kindle-only. It’s available for “Print On Demand” but with all those pages it’s probably expensive.

But: https://archive.org/details/WordOutOfContextEbook/ it’s free here

I always wanted drawing/animating skills. A multi-modal presentation could possibly gets my ‘stuff’ out of my head in a way most easily comprehended.

But, it’s not in my skill set. I’m good with words but words are a tricky thing.

What distinguishes “a written book” from a Facebook post / comment, a Kik or Discord chat, a lengthy Youtube comment?

=====

you’ve just described my whole “thought collector” website.

How to organize though?

Wait: Is it the organization? If so, a well-organized website could work.

So is it the paper?

There must be more aspects of “a book” than that.

But in writing fictions, aren’t you trading in tropes?

For example, you could pick from this set of tropes and construct a novel’s skeleton just from here.

But what of non-fiction?
====
 Most non-fiction books I’ve read:
a) could fit in 5 pages
b) are puffed out by long biographical stories and just-so thought experiments ’til it reaches 300 or 500 pgs.
=====
Back in the 90s, I used to make tiny 3×5 inch books at 7pt condensed arial.
 
They fit in my pocket and good when bored. [pre Palm Pilot era / way pre iPhone]
=====
 I actually never did that I can think of. I’ve written fiction but it was more action than characteristics and I wasn’t good at it.Probably autistic in some way. Supposedly doing “Theory of Mind” differently or lacking it.
=====
 I also tend to write in essay format. Intro, conclusion, a few middle bits with for/against, compare. Whatever.
====
 That’s usually when I get a “whole notion” that I really want to convey. A good amount of my longer posts are short essays.
=====
 Give chance!
To flow!
With Unencumbered Constraints.
Choice keen,
Choose wise.
Choose choice
Chance flow.

======
 So: Blockades to movement increase respect vs flow.
====
 Does one’s ACTUAL path have to resemble a Hero’s Journey in order to gain “Author” respect?
