Risks and challenges
Risks are if I get the book complete and it takes longer to get it published than anticipated or if my son gets sick and I have to tend to him until I can return to the book. I do have many journals to refer to so it is mostly a matter of assembling the materials into a book format with the assistance of a publisher.
Challenges are that I have to work full time and take care of my family while writing the book, if funding is above what is requested I may be able to focus on the book and work part time for a small amount of time to complete before the deadline. This really is not a challenge because I have managed to always work even as both children were sick because I have a wonderful support team around me. Since they know this is a goal near and dear to my heart this should be easily accomplished in the time window requested.
