COMING UP FOR AIR: Page goal reached!
So here it is! COMING UP FOR AIR, THE MANUSCRIPT!
After more than 10 years and a surreal nearly 3 months to the day, I’ve finally reached and smashed my page goal ahead of schedule.
I aimed to reach 401 pages and have, not including today’s count, written 410. The final count is expected to be around 450 pages.
All of the chapters that were drafted years ago have also been edited and revised with a staggering additional 150+ pages written.
However, whilst this means the book now has a beginning, middle and an end, it is far from finished as there are ‘bridges’ and additional chapters that are yet to be written and overall revisions and notes that I’ll need to complete before the manuscript can be submitted to focus group members for review before the focus group meeting in October 2014.
Presently, manuscripts are due by the end of September 2014 but there’s a good chance that they’ll be ready a whole month before, subject to progress.
I’ll be sure to post an update when that happens!
In the meantime, I’d really like to thank all of you for taking the time out of your lives to follow my progress!
I can’t wait for you all to read it!
