"So Zabet, welcome to the wild world of publishing. Bring condoms."

Chatted Syne Mitchell unto me.

The design is growing on me. I knew it would, I mean, it's just so well done that I can't stop myself from liking it. And I am getting over myself - folks looking at the book are really not going to be going, "Dude... I didn't realise Zabet was so girlie." They are going to be thinking about if they can afford it, if they really need another craft book, if Johnny is going to call tonight like he said he might, if Meg will meet them at Starbucks, or if they should pick up a gallon of milk on the way home.

The current thing that I'm freaking out over is how there are still some really large mistakes that I know for a fact we caught last time and sent in. For example, one entire chart is completely wrong. I sent in a corrected chart. The wrong chart is still in the book. One project has been rewritten so much it is completely unintelligible now (following the steps will NOT get you earrings in the end, just some odd, unconnected bits of wire, beads, and jump rings); we asked for it to be restored; it's still really. just. wrong.

I expected to be catching new and different problems this time around. FIVE PEOPLE went over it last time, shouldn't we have caught most of it? Shouldn't the things we caught have been fixed? Seriously, I sent a list broken down by page number, how hard it is to cross off the one that's been fixed and move to the next one?

This frustration is part of my daily routine. I sympathize.
