Book Draft is Halfway Done

The draft of this book is about halfway written. I’ve just had to think about things I wish I’d known when I started playing. Things that would have made learning to play faster or easier. I’m enjoying writing this book. It’s very satisfying to think that all the time I’ve spent researching and talking to people will help someone else.
