I will write a book

I think I found how I want to spend the next few months until we get the Green Card. I will write a pocket guide book on mobile web design techniques. There is absolutely nothing like this today in the shelves of any book store, so that can keep me in drive mode for a while. I have already emailed my O’Reilly contacts to ask if they would be interested to publish it as part of their pocket guide series (usually these are about 100 pages) and if not, I will simply post it as freeware in the PDF/DOC/ODF/HTML formats. Of course, if O’Reilly won’t publish it, it means that no formal proof reading will be applied, so expect lots of weird sentences in it… ;-)

well, I want to get into the mobile web design stuff someday, so I can’t wait to read it! :)

Sounds like you are (were) suffering a lack of focus. The book sounds like a great way to focus. Another way is to spend a few days alone with no responsibilities (and no computer!!).

I am glad you found a good idea for a hobby. Writting a book is another thing I’d like to do someday but can’t find time to start because I am occupied in other things. So, you combined your web design interests with book writting. Nice ! :)

I actually think this is a fantastic idea — not only are you really well suited to write something like this but there also doesn’t seem to be much in the market that addresses this.

If O’Reilly doesn’t publish it then take a look at some alternatives. Maybe the guys who do the Pragmatic Programmer’s series would be interested.
