My New Year's Resolution

Is to finish writing The ZooLib Cookbook by the end of the year. (It is under the GNU Free Documentation License.)

More generally, I want to stop letting my economic troubles prevent me from finding the time to do all the things I want to do. If I write just a little bit each week. I should be able to finish the book in a year no matter how busy things get.

There is other writing I want to do too, and I want to finish grinding my telescope mirror. I should be able to find the time to do all that.

I corresponded with a technical publisher about the possibility of them publishing a dead-tree edition of The ZooLib Cookbook. They were interested, but they didn't feel ZooLib was popular enough yet that they would sell enough copies to justify the cost of publication.

I have the idea that if I finish writing the book, ZooLib will appeal to many more people than it does today, and that will convince the publisher to print the book in, say, 2004.
