Only a few short days are between me and my deadline for the cookbook. When we were discussing finish date for the contract, I partly wanted to ask for more time, but then realized keeping it short and quick would be a nicer quality of life. Writing a book (at least with this type of project and time frame) sort of takes over your life, so I liked it being highly concentrated for a few months instead of looming over me for a long time.

I actually have a document saved on my desktop every time I think of something I want to do, but cannot right now because of the work. It is my “things I will do when my manuscript is turned in” list. On it are items such as get up to date on family photo albums, keep working on the house, be a good friend to people again, etc.

Jenny's Brachiole copy

You will notice a few days off from posting while I am banging out the last pieces of the book. Among the things waiting for us when I return are the annual blog birthday week about life as a blogger (slash author!?) and a roughly-half-a-year-in video tour of the house.

  • Breta

    Hi Rachel,
    I just (somehow) stumbled upon your blog and I have to say, I am so excited to have found you! I love household projects, refinishing furniture, cooking, and theology (well, mostly Jesus, but theology too!) Anyway, just wanted to say hello and introduce myself. I love everything I’ve seen so far. Have a great day! :)

    • Rachel Schultz

      Hi Breta! Nice to “meet” you. Thanks for saying hi!

  • That’s a smart decision – finish the book faster and keep going on with all the other stuff you wanna do :) Cross-fingers :)

    • Rachel Schultz

      Thanks Ellie!
