Update

So, from what I hear people want to know what's going on with the book.

Last semster I had way too much to do, but I committed to making the book my project the following semester (I did write another chapter last semester, though). I'm now on a break in between semesters and have started to work on it. At the moment I'm taking the 15 or so different Word files that each contain different chapters and different versions, and compiling them all into a single draft manuscript. That includes rewriting some chapters (I just rewrote the first on the train last week) and others just organizing into a more coherent order. Once that's done, I'll finish up the rest of the book, and hope to have a draft manuscript by late in the semester (April). From there, a month or two of edits (May or June) and then the search for a publisher begins (June-July). I'd like to be holding the printed copy by about September of 2007.

Unfortunately for those of you waiting paitently to read to next installment, September of 2007 probably sounds like a long time. Writing a book, however, is a long, arduous process, as I'm sure you are all aware. Perhaps, at some point, I'll post another chapter on here...
