I am not usually late with deadlines. I am the sort of person who worries continuously until I have ticked a thing off my list, so I find it easier to get it done and relax after. I have to watch through my fingers when others habitually take it to the wire, working through the night having arsed about for ever first.
But, to my eternal shame and significantly enhanced stress levels, the edits to The Family Court without a Lawyer – A Handbook for Litigants in Person have been very very overdue (so overdue I cannot actually bring myself to give you the exact delay). This is the danger of a moveable deadline. Almost everything else is almost always more urgent. And almost everything else is seductively capable of completion in one or two sittings – an easy tick off the list. And I am not very good at saying no…
However, chapter by chapter I have been plugging my way through it like Snow White through the thicket (not much like Snow White if truth be told). When all of a sudden I found myself in a clearing…
I’ve only bloody gone and finished the updates!
They will of course need to be primped and formatted and all that jazz. And someone will come back and correct all my apostrophe’s. But my main work is done. And you can expect to see the Third Edition in I’d guess a couple of months.
There will be no snap Fourth Edition by the way….
My tick list now has a MASSIVE tick on it.?
It also has a whole load of unticked stuff on it. But the first thing on my list is a celebratory drink. Chin chin.
