I've decided to write a short blog-type post every week here on this forum. These posts are exclusive to this forum, and they will primarily be about the writing of the book.

The days between book work have grown longer and longer. As I type this, it's been 11 days since my last commit, and 18 days since the last time I uploaded a chapter to the production team.

(To get a feeling for the pace, check out the dates in the screen shot below. Each update is when the chapter was submitted to the copy editor.)

The book has begun to feel done, but I caution myself to not get too giddy: there's still one or two last mad rushes with the proofreader and the layout people. Once this kicks up, I'll have to be active and alert again, but until then it is "hurry up and wait."

One of things I wonder about is whether this long break is normal. I suppose that is why I'm writing all this down: so I can remember for the next book project! Until then, thanks everyone, for reading.
