Got the edits for my book proposal and sample chapter back from the agent. Nothing major—apparently, the editor prefers “because” over “since” and likes to capitalize the command key—so I turned them around pretty quickly and they’re back in his hands. Next step: send them off to Apress so they can get excited about them and immediately whip up a contract with a sizable advance. I’m shooting for $3,596: $149 for Microsoft Office.X, $2699 for the dual 2GHz G5, $149 for the iSight, and $599 for a 17” flat screen. C’mon, I need a good, quality system to write on. You think my crappy 15” PowerBook G4 is going to cut it? Geesh.
