Two very exciting things

Two pieces of news. First, those of you who were here last year when I was publishing daily totals of my to-do list (it was on the blogs.rice.edu site, which is now semi-permanently down) may remember my delight when the number of things to do dropped below 100. Well, it’s now dropped below 50 for the first time since I finished my PhD! It’s kind of a surrogate blood pressure gauge. Too low and it’s a sign you’re dead, but too high and it’s a sign of ill-health. So either it’s all downhill from here, or …
Second, bigger piece of news is that I now have a formal offer of publication for my field methods book, which I’m very pleased about. It’ll be out some time in the second half of next year. A big big thanks to a reviewer who gave me an incredibly detailed review and lots of comments. It must have taken a huge amount of time and I’m very grateful they took that time!

  1. Congratulations on the book, Claire!

  2. Well done Claire, can’t wait to see the book. Congrats also on the under half-century. I’m sure you’ll think of a few things yet to stop the level getting too low.

  3. W00t (as the kids say these days)! Hearty congratulations, and may your to-do list stay within the proper zone! (Me, I just have a vague awareness of “stuff to do” and a vague sense that it will probably all get done somehow. Mostly. Sort of.)

  4. Thanks! I used to work on the principle of “if I don’t remember needing to do it, it probably wasn’t important”, but unfortunately that no longer applies.
