The good news is I know better now than to attempt the impossible. As long as I keep my perfectionist tendencies in line, this new book should not only be possible, but fun. How often do I get (paid) to speculate on as many possibilities as I can think of for the collapse of nations and civilizations? The book encourages brainstorming, and that's one of my favorite activities. It's as if I get to write a bad science fiction novel without the going to the trouble of developing believable characters.
So if I get anxious it's my own fault: I'm the one who can choose to set the bar higher than any real person can achieve, or worry about how my work will be received by others. Instead, I'll do my best to produce good work and have some fun.
