Remember that book I was working on? You know: the one that was the whole point of starting this blog in the first place?
Well, guess what? Today, I got a (long-delayed) second reader's report. But it was well worth waiting for, as it is admirably thorough. Plus, it practically glows in the dark. No kidding: it includes words like "masterly," "important," and "unique." Best yet, those words are about something that I wrote!
(Can you tell that I'm a little insecure about my scholarly abilities?)
In any case, for those of you following this as you start your own book projects, the next steps are apparently for me to write a brief response/plan for revision, and then for Fabulous Editor (or FabEd for short, I think) to take it to the board. I'm going to take a little while to work on the response, as there is one tricky issue, where the readers disagreed with each other on the fundamental purpose of one of the chapters. I'll address that in a later post, because I think some people might be interested in following along as I try to finesse this while remaining true to my own vision for the book. But let's save this for later, because right now, I just feel like temporarily shelving the insecurities and basking in the glow of my own masterly important uniqueness, thankyouverymuch.
