I’m closing in on the end of the full rough draft–a little later than I wanted to, but still with a good few weeks for editing and finalizing everything. Things:
- This is probably going to be longer than 85K words, which is good, because I’m sure a bunch of the words are coming out in the editing process.
- I’d forgotten about writing captions for photos, so that’s another item for the to do list.
- I’ve been talking about some of the themes of the book in various venues:
- People ask me when the book will finally be out and I really have no idea. I deliver the manuscript by August 31 and then its in the hands of the publishers as they edit, layout, make changes, after which I approve changes, create an index, and so on. I’m doing the best I can to make sure the manuscript I send them is as trouble free as possible.
So I ‘m on the final part of the first part of the whole process. I’m finding the process of working with a publisher to be almost as interesting as the actual subject material. So far, the editor I’m working with has been helpful and friendly, which is all I ask.
And now, back to work.
