Here are a few things I have discovered about writing a book.
- It would be wise to know how to express myself using actual words and not just winking smiley faces.
- It is simply not ok to describe every single cake as delicious. Apparently there are other words that I can use to describe how cakes tastes.
- Writing, photographing, baking for, and developing recipes for a cookbook is only wise if you have a long period of time to do it. Say, two years. Giving yourself a three month deadline is DUMBCRAZYSTUPIDINSANEIDIOTIC.
- Make sure you know a LOT of people who are willing to eat your food. Having large amounts of cake and frosting sitting in your house is not good. Very very not good.
- It is recommended that when writing recipes you be clear and present a concise picture to a reader. Talking about how my five year old learned how to do handstands by falling out of his bed might not be the best approach in a layer cake tutorial.
Overall the process has been exhausting, informative, and most of all, fun. Did I mention how thankful I am to be here right now?
Do you have any questions about my process so far? Any detail you are dying to know? I’d be happy to answer any questions you have!
Note: Some questions I cannot answer due to contractual obligations, but thats mostly boring stuff anyway!
