So far, so good. I've just finished section 5 out of 14 for the knitting book. And the original format wasn't working, so it's become more of a "thoughts on" book than a "devotional." It reads and flows better this way.
I'm pretty surprised that it's coming along so far. There's still a bit of writing to do and of course a few rewrites after, but it is going easier than I thought.
