Working the 20th Century Way

I know I'm not keeping to my daily blogging schedule, but I am overwhelmed by a job for a Major Publisher Who Shall Remain Nameless, a job that has inundated me with paper and is killing me with Too Much Information. Fifty-page guidelines! Two sets of them, much of the information contradictory! Not to mention weekly revisions of guidelines! Tearsheets a la 1980! Piles and piles and piles of paper, and Fed Ex boxes lining every wall of the office! All for a pretty meaningless revision of a perfectly good series.

If anyone cares to attend, there's a BOE meeting tomorrow at Cassavant School (McLean) at 7:15. I'd link to the agenda, but it's not on the website yet.
