No…I’m not done with MyShingle, though my infrequent postings over the past few months may have given you that impression.  Rather, I am done with the initial draft of a book project on a topic related to starting a law firm that I have been working on for the past two and a half years.  By my Word Perfect word count, my draft comes in at 363 pages (double spaced, Arial 10 pt. font) and 142,395 words.  Whew!  I know that I’ll still have some more editing, as well as a couple of inserts to add here and there, but I am considering my draft officially complete, with just 9 hours to spare before my end-of-2006 deadline.

I’m wishing all of you a Happy New Year!  I know that it will be a good one for me.  I’ll resume more regular posting in 2007.

    Congratulations, Carolyn! I look forward to reading it. I assume you’ll let us know when it’ll be available. In the meantime, I fully intend to continue reading MyShingle on a daily basis to enjoy your knowledge.

    As a regular reader, I was a bit scared by the headline. Glad to hear MyShingle will still be part of my daily/weekly reading.
    Congrats on finishing the draft – I too can’t wait until the book comes out!
