Dynamic Change: The Second Draft #WorkingOutLoud

At the end of a week of writing, i have hit the second draft of the book about the Dynamic Change Framework. So far this week i have: [1] renamed it twice, [2] added 10k new words, about half of which i suspect are superfluous, [3] actioned a swathe of edits from the first draft and [4] restructured about 50% of it, which just goes to show that time does not necessarily equal progress.

Organisational Change - 2nd Draft

On the plus side: the book now feels under control: i have it in my head again, i think the structure is there, and probably less than 5k of new writing to do (the closing chapter, a diagnostic approach, and four amplifiers of change still to write up).

In parallel with this, the 2nd Edition of the Social Leadership Handbook has just launched, so i feel i am living with two books right now (plus the half dozen still brewing…).

One of the joys of setting aside a week to write is that you can immerse yourself in it, and are able to be both more productive and more connected to community. So, for that reason, it’s been fun!

I do at least feel that the end of the core writing is in sight, so when i get back from holiday, it will be onto the last stretch, then some new illustrations: currently there are around sixty, and i think it will end up with maybe seventy five, but that’s still to be decided.

Thanks for bearing with me through a week of #WorkingOutLoud. I’m travelling the next couple of weeks: i’ve scheduled some posts on five #Aspects of the Social Age next week, and the week after may be quiet (unless i get the bug to do some more travel writing).
