Ancient National Airs
My book manuscript has to be at the publishers' by Monday 30th April, so by my calculations, it needs to be posted next Friday. Seven days - this is the final countdown!
Today, I bought paper and ink (I should have enough already, but the PhD submission process taught me never to underestimate your requirements!) - and two USB sticks. Tonight I'm going to look at my images and pay the copying/rights invoice, which mercifully came in much less than I'd dreaded. Thanks, Glasgow Uni!
Tomorrow - back to the manuscript.
I'm reading a paper at the Musica Scotica conference in Glasgow next Saturday. By then, I want to be able to say the magic words,
'... and my manuscript is in the post to the publishers.'
Just seven days. Starting from now ...
