In the middle of Final Edits. Finished pile on the right, still to come on the left. (Behind it you can see the tome that is the first draft, plus a handful of layout test pages from print formatting work.) I’m scheduled to have it all wrapped up on Friday, and then I turn my attention to the last items on my pre-publishing checklist—which, now that I am looking at it, um, are mostly finish the Final Edits.

This is becoming real disturbingly fast.
