'How Many Books Are You Writing?'
A Man Question from Justin: Updated 12/10/17

I am switching this worksheet to the Gaming page just so I can find it. I am adding the word count for each book in progress as I compile them from the site and back them up. 8/20/17

The answer is, man, I don't know.

So, as my favorite YouTuber, Varg would say, "Let's find out."

Actually, this may help my editor, Danica, who picks a book here and there to edit, leaving the rest to my dubious care and Lynn, who is compiling my complete catalogue at

I will return to this and update it as books move up the composition ladder—I'm a boxing coach dude.

I have begun the book, perhaps even written a few chapters, but the work is currently dormant and mostly incomplete.

How much do I have to pay to get more articles by James and less by the rest of these guys?

I take that as a compliment, Paul.

Thank you.

My ratio of articles wanes when books are being wrapped up, of which I rarely post the last few chapters online. I'm wrapping up four just now.

However, this is frustrating for me. I outlined 37 articles, 13 on stick-fighting, 7 on masculinity, book reviews, etc., this past week, which I have not written yet.

What would help me at such points—and they are legion—is if a reader would point me in a certain direction. This energizes.

Towards this end, feel free, at any time, to assume managing editorial status and send in a comment or email suggesting—nigh, demanding—a subject you would like me to address, general or specific and I will do so.

For today, let me get to it and see what can be done.

As for payment, buying books or donating will do fine.

Best regards, James

I don't see "write proper Wikipedia entry" on this list.

It's the first stop on the internet, you miss a beat not having one!

Maybe something for this Lynn fella to do? *nudge nudge*
