    • The other book burned me out. It was way more work than I ever imagined. I’m not sure I want to do any more books. Most of the material is ‘done’, but it’s just a big pile of stuff that takes hundreds of hours to sort out and edit. The video was way more fun in comparison, and since our son wants to start a video/photography company in a few months then I’m more inclined to do videos than books. We’ll see.
