25% Book deadline completed, and most useless machine ever

25% of my book, or the preface through chapter 3, was due January 4th. I had already asked for one extension (from 12/24) so I was really trying to hit the Jan 4th date. So, at 2am on the evening of the 4th (technically the morning of the 5th) I submitted all the chapters, and about half of the artwork. I still have to fill in some mini projects and finish the drawings, but what a HUGE relief that was! So far feedback has been great. I’m taking a few days off now before diving back in.

When my editor replied to my submission, he included a link to an Instructables page on the most useless machine ever. I want one.
