This is the problem with trying to blog every week.  Too many works in progress, no progress to actually report.

The proposal is written and in the hands of a capable but overtaxed editor who will get to it when the rest of her life has stopped imploding.

The last chapter is still being studiously avoided as I mop up other dribs and drabs. I’m hoping to tackle it this weekend on a couple long car rides.

The last bits of not-totally-futile research were completed over the weekend.  (I’m still engaging in futile research, however. Hope springs eternal, and all that.)

The formatting of the sample chapter is on my to-do list.

I’m hoping I get enough of a first draft in place that I can print out copies to dump  in the laps of my relatives when I visit them the last week of March.  Will I pull it off? Only time will tell.

Meanwhile, have I read anything? Sort of. I’m halfway through two books; one on CD and one old-fashioned eyeball-reading. And you’ll get reviews on those … someday. Later. Not sooner.

Of course, I have also promised my kid that I will finish knitting him a scarf that I began more than a year ago. So, you might want to keep that in mind when you wonder how far off “later” might be!
