Chapter one. done. See what I did there?

Posted on 01 October 2010

Well, done is stretching it a bit actually.

Chapter 1 was sent off to the publisher but of course there is a considerable amount of work to be done before a chapter is finalized and accepted.

A colleague of mine with authoring experience predicted 2 hours per page for technical writing. I have to admit I figured I could push out pages a little quicker, but in the end doing some simple math shows that I was actually at about 2.2 hours per page. That was a pretty good estimate!

This 1st chapter had an extremely steep learning curve and although I am exhausted and looking forward to a short break, chapter 2 and 3 are right around the corner and strangely enough I can’t wait to get started.

I need to focus on limiting the automatic self-editing that takes place between my brain and fingers. My fingers want final draft while my brain just wants something on paper that can be re-worded later on. I’ll work on this.

Exhausted; must sleep.

In any event, the first of several significant milestones is behind me and I’ll be redirecting focus on chapter 2 and 3.
