As a form of self-care, I am going to celebrate my first milestone in the process of writing the experimental online book Me, Looking for Meaning. I have completed the first 10 pages! You can find a list here. (There is also the start page, so there are technically 11 entries altogether).
The completed pages can still change over time, although not dramatically. If my thinking evolves, I will add a note about it and link to new pages with additional ideas.
If you try reading the book, you will discover that each completed page has multiple links that lead... basically, nowhere. This is my way to create notes for myself for ideas I still want to develop. I understand that potential readers may find this frustrating, so I recommend using the list of completed pages instead of links on each page for now.
The book is clearly still in its earliest stages. There is a lot of uncertainty. For example, how many pages will it have? If it gets to one hundred, how will I navigate all the links? I can tell you that it's already getting confusing on my end, even though I do my best to keep the book easy to use for others. The slow pace is frustrating, but I cannot go any faster, because this project is as "side" as it gets.
On the positive note, after a few months of watching it grow, I can say that this growth will continue. Perhaps very slowly, but it will. And the book has already given me some good food for thought, as I was struggling to formulate my thoughts for myself and others. In short, the book is serving is purpose... some purpose, and I am happy about that!
