Since Friday I am trying to get 1667 words out of my hands every single day. On Friday it worked not that bad and I had a strong start. As long as I was writing the preface this wasn’t an issue at all, I knew exactly what to write and was quickly through it. But the preface ends very soon. After like 3000 words or less I was done with the draft for it. As soon it got into the real book it started getting hard and I really had issues getting even near to the word count.

When I entered the job world after finishing IT school I thought I know everything, luckily I didn’t. I was standing there, thinking I am ready to tackle just anything. Luckily I fell on my nose pretty quickly. I didn’t know anything, yeah in school I learned how to do this and that, but I haven’t done it. I have done it theoretically. And on the other hand where should that knowledge come from, I was 18 years old, there had to be smarter people than me that I could learn from. By admitting
