Easier books and handsome home screens

I think there’s still a place for books in 2023. I consider them the place for the “why.” Courses and posts cover the “how.”

I’ve been privately updating my 2022 post 35 Lessons from 35 Years of Newsletter Publishing with new lessons, revisions, and research. It’s a straight-up “why” piece.

So, why not make it a book?

This is what the book looks like right now in MindNode (before it transitions to Scrivener and  Vellum).

Folded within the title of each branch, are the links, updates, additions, quotes, and other backing materials that make up each small chapter.

Yep. Tech really helps. This is just another reason why there’s no excuse not to write a book.


P.S. The Focused podcast turned me on to Getaway houses as a personal retreat/quiet place to work for a day or two at a time.

P.P.S. Want more subscribers? Give away more content.

P.P.P.S. It’s been a while since I’ve seen a home screen this handsome.
