So... just in case anyone hasn't been paying attention to the comments of the post a few doors down, I thought I'd bring this debate up to the surface:
Have we decided unanimously to skip this looming Libris deadline and just make the book in our own time? If not, we need to work out a submission. Pronto.
...but... if we ARE releasing the pressure valve, then can we give ourselves another deadline? Otherwise I will never get around to doing the book! I need a deadline of some sort, you can blame my bad high school study habit of doing things at the last minute.
My suggestion is the end of March. If you finish before then, FANTASTIC. If you need more time by then, we'll have to get out the birch rods... That will give us time to work out how to put ourselves together as a group entry for anything, if we want to operate that way. And if we're all happy, we can then think about a something for our next project.
What does everyone think? That is just a serving suggestion: if anyone has a more significant and workable date, bring it forth!
