Personal note; status report...

I think -- I could be wrong, but I think -- that I now have everything under control for the two projects I asked you to advise me about and help me with. I have two thick folders now of articles and materials; those materials include a printout of all your comments and responses compiled into a single file, as well as printed-out transcripts of some IM sessions. If I can't manage now to do a respectable job, it will be entirely my own fault; you [youall] have most definitely done your part.

My next steps are the standard ones that go with any kind of teaching: I have to choose from my files the items that are the most important and most useful for my listeners/readers to learn, decide what order to present them in, and construct a wording for them that will be both clear and interesting.

Thank you again for all your help; it's trite to say I couldn't have done it without you, but in this case that trite line is also the simple truth. I had so little time that if I hadn't been able to call on you the whole thing would have been impossible.

Needless to say [which always means that whatever-it-is does need to be said], if you think of anything else that you feel should be included in my files, I'll welcome the additional input.

  • Wednesday; "Gone With The Wind"...

    I just want to mention something here, in case you're not already aware of it. I want to mention the extraordinary craftsmanship that's demonstrated…

  • Saturday; the new novel...

    I have to re-write the new novel, in longhand, from start to finish -- which will take a while. It does have to be done in longhand, and there's no…
