My boring celebrations

Earlier this week I sent off the last few chapters of my next book to my editor. Now, there's still plenty of proofreading to do, and it's far from done, but it is certainly a milestone in the project... one that I have been working toward since early Spring.

So, what did I do to celebrate? Took one day off to walk in the woods with the dog, cook a nice supper, and clean my office. Today I spent answering the three weeks worth of e-mail that I hadn't gotten to in the final, big push. When I was writing, I thought that getting the book off would be followed by a big, fun celebration, but when the time came, I was too tired to do much of anything.

Hopefully the book will be better than my celebrations of it.

What the topic of your new book? (btw. your last one was fascinating)

Thank you, Mike.

This coming book looks at social and economic trends in the US in service of answering the question of whether life is getting better or worse.
