I began the summer’s work yesterday morning by starting a read-through of the manuscript thus far, and was thrilled to discover that the introduction is not as far off as I thought it was. It needs a bit of tinkering, but a small enough bit that I’m comfortable putting it in the category of “revision.” So here’s what I think needs to be done between now and August 14:
— finish last section of Chapter 5 (on the university)
— research and write Chapter 4 (on the library)
— figure out how to turn CommentPress article into Chapter 3 (on networked publishing structures)
— possibly write a conclusion
It’s not as bad as I feared, but it still makes me want to hyperventilate.
