Well... today, the book I was editing went to the publisher. In about a week, we will get a sample chapter back to check layout and design, and then a couple of weeks after that, there will be a real book in our hands. The author is a gentleman by the name of Jack Reigle, who is a strategic consultant. The title is Silver Bullets: Strategic Intelligence for Better Design Firm Management. The book is about thinking strategically, to make your business thrive. Although it is targeted at the architectural and engineering industries, the principles it explains are quite applicable to any professional service industry.
I am also helping to design the marketing campaign for the book, which is as much work as getting it written. We have 50 events lined up in the next 4 months or so, and a targeted direct mail and email campaign ready to go.
I have work in the morning--I need to catch up on the other work for other clients that languished all week while we did final proofing. And then I am going to play music and laugh.

For when the work is done we will play music and laugh. We will sing and dance until the morning comes. We will be happy and gay and light-hearted. We will be full of mirth while we may. And when it is time to meet the duties of a new day we will be ready for we have satisfied our passions.
Congratulations on getting the book to the publisher. That must have felt really good! :-)

Sounds like a fascinating project/challenge. With a real fine relaxation kicker at the day's end. Good luck with it all.

I just got home from some extensive business travel... I know what mean - and I am glad you have a intense project in your rear-view mirror. I will think of you celebrating with some picking, while I do the same.
