After writing my first Life in Local Train during April A to Z challenge 2017, I always wanted to write on the genre which I feel is my forte, cricket. So my journey towards IPL-ology began.
Learnings from Life in Local Train
While writing Life in Local Train, I realized that to write a blog post every single day is a challenge. I used to write till 11:30 p.m. or even 12 at night (in April) along with my full-time job. I had a habit of writing while commuting when I was writing Life in Local Train in 2017. And that habit helped me in finishing the book on time.
In one year, the habit of writing while commuting was gone and it was really difficult to gain that momentum. So the second thing I learned after time management was, you need momentum to write the book. Third thing which I learned was the flow of writing. If you know how to manage time and you have the momentum then you will get that flow which is required to finish the book.
Beginning of Ebook carnival 2018
Blogchatter ebook carnival began in 2018. And with that, April A to Z challenge began as well. Cricket, being my forte, I thought it will be a cake walk for me. In the first chapter only, I realised that my own expectations are high. So I decided to research well before writing on any factor of IPL. And while doing that, I started staying behind the schedule.
Moreover, I wanted to write 1000 word blog posts. The factors or aspects which I decided to cover, needed a lot of research. Thus to write IPL-ology was more challenging than Life in Local Train. I had lost the time management skill, I was not getting the momentum due to research part and if I don’t know how to manage time and don’t have the momentum then how will I get the flow?
Then I started channelizing my energy. I decided to write five to six blog posts on weekends. By doing that, I got the momentum and flow. And with that flow, I finished the first draft of the Book by the first of may. Then I edited and published IPL-ology in the month of July.
This time I had added responsibility during ebook carnival. I was made an ebook mentor by blogchatter. So along with writing the IPL-ology, I was helping aspiring authors in publishing their ebooks. It was a special feeling and this gesture by blogchatter made IPL-ology even more special.
I have tried to cover each and every factor and aspect of IPL in IPL-ology. I hope you will enjoy reading it. Click here to grab your copy. Read it and let me know what do you think about it? You can let me know via Amazon and goodreads reviews or a blog post review (it will be a blessing if you give me the detailed review in a blog post).
