Writer's Block

I have been compiling my own recipes into a book for at least two years now, and it became this pigsty of a book, I could never find the recipe I was looking for, and it frustrated the snot out of me. So I dumped it all onto the table and spent three hours putting it into the order I wanted it, so it was usable for me! Now there are recipes that aren't mine in there (so I can locate them) and recipes that aren't gluten free (ok, one - so I can remember how to make hubby green bean casserole every holiday). I have my recipes typed into a document, well most of them, but I just have no idea what the heck to do with them now! Do I start a new document with only the recipes I want to put into a book? Do I go through "my book" and add the good ones I have added since typing them up six months ago? I have come to hate the idea of even publishing a cookbook - how do you get someone to publish it, how does all of that work? How do you market and sell it? Being gluten free, is that a mark against it? Ugh.

  1. A good solution would be recipe software. I downloaded the trial version of "The Living Cookbook" then decided to purchase it later. http://www.livingcookbook.com/

    It is not very expensive and has some great features such a the ability to share recipes and publish and print cookbooks!
