Home Stretch!Posted 7 years ago by Ann Handley | 13 Comments
C.C. and I are in the home stretch of finishing the book!
The manuscript is due
July 1 July 15 Monday (!) (thank you for your patience, Shannon and Beth!), which means that this little corner of my office is where I’ve been spending all my waking hours lately.
If this photo had audio, you’d be hearing persistent, intermittent knocking on my office door. That would be my family, “Hello in there! When are you coming out?” Good thing it doesn’t; you might be more tempted to answer it than I have been. (Sorry, guys.) (Also, it would be embarrassing for me to have you witness my grouchy response.)
Anyway, I thought you’d enjoy the annotated (“Ann-otated?”) version of my writing space:
A few notes:
- “Critical reminders from DM Scott” are Post-It notes from the first conversation I had with David about this book, last January. He said, “Write for rock bands, churches, B2B, B2C, nonprofits, entrepreneurs, consultants, individuals, and so on. Don’t limit yourself to the world you know best.” So we haven’t.
- “Inspiration from Hugh M.” is this print from Hugh MacLeod.
- One of the book in the pile on the floor is Tim Ferriss‘s The 4-Hour Workweek. Oh, the sweet irony….
- Under the desk (always) is Simon. (Love that dog.)
Big thanks to Shelley Ryan for her production and creative assistance with this post!
