Drowning in a Sea of Copyedits . . . .

I mentioned last week that I've got copyedits to do. I glanced at the cover letter to check the due date.

Well, yesterday I checked the due date against the calendar. That due date isn't as far off as I thought it was. Plus, I'm too stingy to send a heavy manuscript like this overnight (sometimes they only want the pages that have been changed, other times they want the whole thing, depending on the circumstances). Of course, if I'd checked the calendar from the jump, I would have realized that I was erroneously giving myself an extra three days and I probably could have been done by now, since it was a weekend. But that's spilled, sticky orange juice.

So I'm going to be quiet here the next few days as I take care of this pressing business. Try not to miss me too much.
