The Proof (of a pudding is in the eating)
That's it, folks. I've been through the Word proofs of my entire book, edited them, and returned them to my editor. Next, I must wait for the pdfs, then forward them to my indexer.
Joseph Ritson - Scotish Song
Do you know what the most exciting part of this has been? Re-reading about my song collectors and what made them tick; closely followed by opening my copy of Ritson's Scotish Song (yes, that's the spelling, and it's in the singular) and savouring the genuinely 18th century smell of the pages. It's NOT musty - just very, very old. And I love it!
