Time to Write a Book

I’ve been toying with the idea of writing a book for years, probably since I could read. I’ve actually written books (when I was a kid), blogs, articles and reviewed books as an editor. I’ve probably written enough words to fill many books. I just read a blog post that explained how to write a book in 10 easy steps – okay then! Let’s get busy. I’m working on the concept of Building a Career in Health Information Management and all that goes with it.

  1. What is Health Information Management
  2. Emerging Careers
  3. Education
  4. Experience
  5. Practicum/ Apprenticeship
  6. Networking
  7. Interviews and Resumes
  8. Learning About Yourself – Developing Your Career Development Plan
  9. Interviews and Things Every Graduate Wish They Had Know

This blog post is now at 122 words and counting. If I write 200 words a day, I could write a 75,000 word book in just over a year, but with weekends and time off, I could whip it out even sooner. My goal is to finish this by the end of my term as President of OrHIMA (Oregon Health Information Management Association), which is June 30, 2018. Here goes nothing! Oh and that is now 186 words. I’m so very close to 200!
