What I’m doing now

(This is a now page, and if you have your own site, you should make one, too.)

I’m home in Wellington, New Zealand. It’s summer.

I’ve got two new adventures going on:

My next book: “How to Live”

On April 23rd, I had a great idea for a new book I’d want to write. But it was just an idea.

On September 13th, I realized that, in a way, I’d been writing that book for hours a day, but only to myself in my private diaries.

So on September 14th, at 4:15am, I bounced out of bed and started writing my new book for six hours before breakfast, and at every chance since.

(Get on my private email list if you want to hear about it first.)

My first app: EarMouth

On October 17th, I had a great idea for an app that I wished would exist.

I’ve never been into apps, and never made one, but this instantly felt very worth doing. So I am.

It’s fun and a great learning experience. This iPhone course for beginners is great.

I’ll talk about it when it’s ready, of course. It’s going to be invitation-only, at first, so get on my private email list if you want first dibs.

(don’t ask…)

I didn’t mean to make this sound like an announcement. Just letting you know what I’ve been up to, since that’s what a /now page is for.

Feel free to say hello and introduce yourself, but please don’t ask me what the book is about or what the app is. I’m not ready to talk about it yet. I just want to keep writing and programming until they’re done.
