I'm writing a technology book under a tight deadline. The first half of the first draft just came back from the editor. She seems to like it.
Writing the book is completely fun! The stressful part is dealing with the expectations of other clients — and associates on volunteer projects — who are used to having me readily available. It is very hard for me to say "no." I'm more likely to say "yes," look freaked out, and then go into my office and throw things.
