I just finished indexing the manuscript. That’s normally a hard day’s work, but this being the week before a major holiday I was unable to get a full day to dedicate to the task. I wound up spending about two hard man-days on the task, because context switching in and out of indexing has a higher cost than any other task my brain runs.
With luck, I’ll have the print book laid out next week and ebooks by the end of the week. Yes, I could prepare ebooks first, but the print layout forces me to go through the manuscript one last time searching for errors. I always find one or two warts in the process.
I am, however, taking the weekend off for my family’s choice of Winter Solstice Holiday. May you all have a delightful WSH of your choice.
