I just thought it would be time to break down the ongoing process when it comes to never promotion of the book that I've been playing to release for a few years at this point. I've said this before and I never really knew the amount of work that goes into not just writing a book, but I really started learning the process during recent months and it has given me insight on why I really couldn't wing everything when it came to the book. I was getting annoyed last year when I kept getting told to edit and edit and edit even though it should be something positive I didn't want to keep editing the book to the point that I was ready to send it to the publisher.
I knew those people were right and that's why neither book has been published as of right now. I remember going on podcasts two years telling people that the book would be done within a couple of weeks and that it would be released soon after, but the reality is neither book was ready and one actually sucked at the time. Looking back then I was extremely naive to any sort of process being in place when it came to writing a book I though I could just write and publish it like I did with blogs or this website.
I know it's crazy to think someone could be that naive, but I am the same person that thought making a magazine in 2018 was a good idea. This won't be a long article, because it doesn't need to be as I've learned a tremendous amount in the last year about the process and that I know I've got a lot to learn and some of the process will just come as time goes on, but other things I've got to learn myself.
I can finally say that I am getting there, because I made a mistake of leaning on one book even though that one has more work to be done. As some of you might know I've spent a lot of time working on "The Sale that Changed Wrestling" which focuses on the sale of WCW. Another book I've been working on is called "Wrestling with Generations" which focuses on a love of wrestling being shared through generations. The second book was the first one I started working on, but it landed in developmental hell for around a year when I worked on the WCW book. Even though "Wrestling with Generations" was further along and closer to being done I wanted to finish the WCW book first even though it would take a lot more work to finish.
For the longest time "Wrestling with Generations" was always the second fiddle until recently when I realized how close I was to finishing it. There is no doubting now that "Wrestling with Generations" will be first and it's only a matter of time before I will be able to call myself a published author. I've never realized how much I wanted this to happen and will give the promotion everything I have this will work out as I plenty of faith.
For the most part the only series that has stuck around for the channel next to the Let's Play series is the Inside TEW series. The difference between the Inside TEW series and regular Let's Play's is that the Inside TEW series consists only of my personal saves and weren't started with an end sight. In the past my go to for this series was the longstanding personal save I had with WCW. This video though explores my save with the WWF where I have finally landed in the mid 1990's and started to make a move to a more attitude focused product.
Recently, Total Extreme Wrestling 2020 went on sale and that might've took some wind of the sail for the previous generation game. The reality is I've been focusing on preparing a new database for 2020 as my return to Let's Play's, but it's going to take a while to complete. I have been trying to move forward with a variety of content on the channel to take it in a more diverse direction, and even though wrestling will always have a place on the channel it will shift from being the main focus of the channel once I figure out a steady way to publish content.
