It's done...

I've e-mailed the files to my editor and I'm about to take the hard copy to the xerox shop.

No negative thoughts to speak of, either. Though I did just spend half an hour wrestling with unwanted page breaks in the table of contents, but decided that the press will be better equipped than I to strip the wretched formatting off the silly little things...

This will still come back to me for a couple more rounds of work, most notably for indexing, but it's substantively finished now. I was first thinking about it a bit more than five years ago, and I started properly researching and writing it in September 2003. Books take a long time to write, I do not know why I continue to be so surprised by this fact!

I can't think of a single idea that I've had that would take 5 years to write out - your book is really a huge accomplishment! You writers astound me. Congrats!

Thanks, everyone! Really it should NOT have taken five years to write, but what can you do?!?
