Progress on the book

A nice clear desk, set up for writing about Mahjong, with a library of Mahjong books to my left, and the two monitors: book text on the left screen, update log on the right screen.

This morning I made good progress on the edits for the Teach Yourself Mahjong book that I’m revising. I hate doing things in bits and pieces — 30 minutes here, 30 minutes there — so it was good to have a good few hours run with the edits. At the moment it looks like I’ll have around 55 revisions, which includes writing two new chapters.

Rather frustratingly, we’re off to Edinburgh again now. Since starting my job I’ve not spent a single weekend in Cellardyke: there has always been something to attend in Edinburgh. I’m quite exhausted, to be honest, and physically quite weary from all the travelling.

However, since it’s for Jane’s birthday party with family and friends it will be great fun. My sister Jenni and her son Benjamin will be coming up for it too, which is great. I’d better go, there are roadworks on the Forth Bridge this weekend … joy!!
