Over the past week, I've been photographing friends and combing through my archives for favourite portraits for my book. At one point a couple of days ago, I had all of them pulled up on my computer screen. I couldn't stop looking at them -- such wonderful faces.
The more I work on the book, the more excited I get about its premise. But also, while I continue to be convinced the idea behind the book is so sound, sometimes I freak out about whether I can do it justice.
My deadline to turn in the final manuscript for the book is in five weeks. Just typing those words made my hair stand on end -- there's still so much work to be done. So I hope you don't mind, but I'm going to post a little less often over the next few weeks, so I can really buckle down and get this manuscript finished.
I really want to make this book worth your patience.
