Where We’re At

edits

At long last, we’re at the proofing stage of this @#!$$ of a book 🙂 While Pamela is finalizing the layout for the last two chapters, I’ve begun to edit the first part of the book’s text.

I’m currently up to P. 100, which is out of about 500 pages. (Yes, this book is going to be a decent size doorstop.) I’m aiming to get through about 100 pages of paper corrections a week, entering those corrections into the computer during the weekend.

All of which means we’ve finally entered the home stretch. Pinch me 🙂 (Please don’t pinch me.)

  1. It’s about time I finally knew where it’s at. People tell me all the time I don’t know where it’s at. Reminds me of a great line from the Richard Mulligan-starring “S.O.B.”: “Whenever I think I know where it’s at it’s usually somewhere else”.
    Won’t be long before you can start on your “Benson” book. : )

  2. Oh Mulligan — I wonder if he had any idea that we would be sitting around repeating his lines rather than being productive members of society…. And don’t even joke about a “Benson” book – I will happily step aside and let somebody else tackle that one. (Go on, Jeff, you know you’re dying to…)

  3. Aaron, the book looks great. I couldn’t stop looking at the scan reading every last detail. I can’t wait! Let someone else do a BENSON book you need a vacation.

    • I certainly wouldn’t say no to one, Becky 🙂 Some very kind people have mentioned putting together a launch party for the book in Los Angeles — maybe THAT will be the vacation 🙂

    • Well, IF MAD ever did a parody of SNL isn’t that pretty much the same thing?

      it’s a shame that MAD didn’t do one it probably would’ve been very funny.

  4. Fascinating! Thanks for a peek behind the scenes that readers rarely get. Before I realized it I was absorbed in the text!

    • Good gravy, Kyle — I didn’t realize people could actually read the text. I forget that not everybody has bad eyes like me.
