Reader, they accepted the book!
Now, before the real work begins, the work of actually finishing it by June 1 and making it the most articulate argument I can, a brief sigh of celebration.
I have been working on this book since 2006 and it is in many ways, the culmination of so much I have wanted to say, needed to say, that needs to be said, written, on creative writing in higher education. No more worrying that someone is going to beat me to it (well, maybe a little), the relief that this might have the potential to move things in a positive direction.
The end is in sight, I can see it. It’s going to happen.
