My book

50 of my Failed Ideas cover_Layout 1Oh dear! It’s been almost two years since I’ve written anything in this blog. But I’ve got a good excuse: I’ve been working on my book!

A year and a half ago I had an idea to write a book about all the great ideas I’d had, all the projects I had started and not finished. I would take a chapter for each failed idea and expand on it, explaining where the idea came from, how far I had got with it and why it had inevitably failed. It seemed like the perfect method of achieving my long-standing book-writing ambition; a way of breaking the task down into manageable chunks. The results may not be Hemmingway-like but at least I could say that I’d written a book, an actual book with pages and a cover, and that was, after all, what my ambition was.

A year and a half later, after much procrastination, several re-writes and laborious proofreads, I finally sent my book off to the printers.

And now you can buy it! Visit the book page here.
