How I wrote my first book (non-fiction)



I recently wrote my first book, a life-long dream of mine! In this video I talk about how this opportunity came up, and how I actually wrote the manuscript.

    I also know that feeling of being torn between popular writing and academic writing. Had to unlearn popular writing when I did the academic stuff and papers; and then had to unlearn academic writing when I wanted to return to popular writing. Theoretically, I now should be able to switch between the two, but who knows.

    And, yes, I will get your book. Looking forward to it.

    Hi Simon, just saw your face on TV, in ‘Weird Earth’ xD

    Anyway, great video! Breaking problems into bite-sized sub-tasks is one of my favorite tricks for staying motivated on a project^^

    Congratulations Simon! Thank you so much for sharing, I've found this really valuable, I've never known the editing stages or the way I would do research for a technical book if I ever were to write one. It's nice to know what to expect and it was a very fun video 🙂

    A massive congratulations on writing your first book, I had a slight hunch that you were in the process of doing something like this from all you work streams where you were not sharing your work. #autobiographynext

    Every once in a while watching history documentaries they slip on how high the sea level was. Forador channel on Aug 6 2021 was showing ancient Norse glyphs from 1800 bce and were made at the shoreline but the sea level would have been 75 feet higher. I also seen roman ports miles inland in england.the Sunday I watch YouTube channel triggernmetry and one of the founders explained his name Patrick Moore. Please watch and comment.

    You can pre-order the book now at https://geni.us/firmament !
    Note that for people in the US, Canada, and India (and a couple of other territories) the pre-order isn't available just yet because of complicated publishing reasons. Keep an eye on my social media, I'll post an announcement when the pre-order is available everywhere 🙂
