What a Day!Posted October 10th, 2011 by Thomas Norman DeWolf
Sharon and I talked today about how we haven’t had time to add posts to our blog for awhile. We’ve been SO busy working on the manuscript and have been determined to maintain that focus. Our submission deadline with Beacon Press is December 1 and time is so short that we trust you’ll understand.
I arrived at Sharon’s house late yesterday afternoon. We agreed to get up this morning and line out our work schedule for the next two weeks before we drive to Boston to meet with our editor and many other staff members at Beacon Press on Monday, October 24. Our goal is to finish our draft of the complete manuscript by then. Additionally we have many smaller–but very important–details to complete.
Today was incredible. We successfully drafted our dedication page, acknowledgments, notes on methodology, a brief list of recommended books, a review of our Introduction, and narrowed down our ideas on what the subtitle of our book should be. We’re stoked about all we accomplished today.
Tomorrow we’ll begin drafting the final chapter for the manuscript. If one or the other of us has the opportunity during the next two weeks, we’ll provide an update on how things are progressing.
Okay, it’s time for a good night’s sleep before diving into tomorrow’s tasks!
