Things go slowly as always, but what I really want to do is to encourage all my friends to give me a hard time about it. Even if you aren't my friend, you can give me a hard time about it. Tell me to get cracking. Tell me I'll never be successful if I don't sit down and do the work. Tell me to put my nose to the grindstone. Tell me to straighten up and fly right. Tell me to knuckle down. And if you ask me how the book is going and I give some mumbled excuse, feel free to give me a good shake, or a punch, or a kick and chide me for my laziness.
I'm serious. Everybody. Do it.
