100Tips is Tomasz Stasiuk’s diary, journal, and escape from his attempt to write a book on 100 Social Security Hearing Tips in 100 days. You can read all the posts here.
As part of writing 100 Hearing Tips, I want to get other lawyers and the public involved. I want them to know about the book and to talk it up before and after publication. Since I have never done this, I feel a bit like I’m inventing the wheel without knowing what color it should be.
Currently, I am thinking about asking colleagues, other Social Security lawyers around the country, to provide their best tip which will be showcased in the book along with their contact information.
I am also considering doing something for the public by asking them to provide their best tips based on their experience with Social Security.
So far… that’s it. Any ideas?

Starting June 1st, I am starting a writing project in my practice area, Social Security disability. I will be writing a book covering 100 Hearing Tips – published directly onto Kindle with a paper option through an on demand publisher. I am also shooting for 100 tips in 100 days. I know, it’s ambitious.
I have been researching and learning Mac apps to make this a doable goal. I have been using nvAlt for initial notes (synced via Simplenote to let me work on various devices). The actual organization will be done in Scrivener. I have recently become a Markdown convert — I have several articles coming up on Markdown for lawyers. I am looking at Lulu for the on demand physical copy and inclusion into Amazon.
This should be an interesting process. I will be posting here about works and what doesn’t; the ups and the downs. Frankly this endeavor has me equally excited and scared. If I fail, it will be a public failure; even if the only person I disappoint is myself.
So here goes: starting June 1, 2011, 100 Social Security Hearing Tips in 100 days begins! Wish me luck, send me your hearing tips, writing and publishing suggestions, and sandwich recipes!
