This weekend I edited the intro, the methods, and I just finished editing the Ruud Janssen chapter. Now on to the edit of the big lump of the essays chapter. Then edit the postcards chapter and then, with all this data freshly flying around in my cranium, write the conclusions and then read it all again and edit it all again, and that should take me right up to Feb 28th when I dump it into the laps of my committee and start formatting to grad school standards, migrating the references from End Note, and fine tuning the illustrations. I'm carrying around the whole printed book and thinking of it as a whole. Before I was thinking of it one chunk/chapter at a time. Now I'm collaging the pieces together and actually that means taking out a lot of stuff that just doesn't fit. I could write 10 books with the data I've collected.
