In order to gain a decent dose of variations, interesting cross-over connections in between different streams of info, knowledge and sometimes hopefully distilled wisdom :), I am not here to write the book from one chapter to another. In fact, I am going to write a book with four chapters in parallel, from respective book part. See schedule below.
C = Chapter introduction (if more than one chapter gets introduced, separate blog posts). Introduces and summarizes the intended content and coverage of the chapter to be written. A set of new chapters are introduced every fourth week, so the intention is to finalize four chapters in four weeks.
<-S = Summary of week gone (major edits and events related to the book writing process).
S-> = Schedule for the week to come - some small preview - bulleted outlines of intended content in respective chapter to be written the week ahead
Tuesday to Friday Writing Labour and Publishing
Pc1 = Posting included in Chapter 1 (or the current chapter written on) - posted 9AM CET approx
Pc2 = Posting included in Chapter 2 (or the current chapter written on) - 11AM CET
Pc3 = Posting included in Chapter 3 (or the current chapter written on) - 2PM CET
Pc4 = Posting included in Chapter 4 (or the current chapter written on) - 5PM CET
You can also follow the development with noteworthy Twitter postings tagged #causebizbook.
A short process note to finalize: New content is introduced in this blog, and can get feedback either through direct comment below, trackback from other blogs or in the book writing group over at "Sustainopreneur's Café", the community. Beyond that, when ready, the postings get copied and transferred to the book wiki for final editing. Then passing on to the layout phase with PDFs uploaded chapter by chapter, then part by part, and finally the full book to the book group on Scribd virtual document archive. Also described in the sidebar here with links.
• UPDATE [26MARCH09 - 4.30PM CET]
The first blog post for all chapters respectively, now introduced separately in the blog beyond this, have been rescheduled to be lengthier posts - comparable to a pilot issue of a TV series - lengthier (~1200 words each), and giving more context, and beyond that 300 words a posting daily as announced above. Planned posting, rescheduled - tomorrow, Friday, March 27, timing as above.
• UPDATE [13APRIL - 2PM CEST]
Some few days beyond last update, Monday 23rd, I got 1. a posting on the community Sustainopreneur's Café in the book group sending me to reflect deeply on the publishing flow and structure, breaking this plan again, and 2. a phone call on Sunday night, March 29, from a friend suggesting me also to begin writing up my PhD Dissertation on my own, not to wait for a formal university affiliation. He's right, I know enough of the grips to get it done to actually do so - especially extending the already written academic material. I took this with me on the Baltic Sea for a Roundtrip to Riga, with just me, a notebook and the whole volume of the book I was contributing to, in order to revisit some of the chapters I did not see the last version of. This, I took with me to get a gross list of research questions getting it down to the net list of research coverage, now online in its own domain. The popular writing on http://sustainopreneurship-book.wikidot.com with a broader scope and just enough depth for implementable action for whatever stakeholder to contribute then will be going through the "academization" (as opposite process to "popularization"), turning things the other way around in an iterative loop. That research will be focusing the "what" aspect of Sustainopreneurship Research - deepening the conceptual understanding. Taking the reflective trip on the sea into the writing and outlining of the potential PhD dissertation was finalized April 7, and is found on http://sustainopreneurship-phd.wikidot.com. Last thing to reflect around was to find some elements of the internal organizing of my doing, by implementing a last component to my GTD system, ready this Easter weekend - now. Ready to roll out writing process tomorrow! Tweaking offering on how to contribute to the success of this project today, Monday. I'll be back!
