First few Sections of Book Written and Submitted

This morning I sent off a few sections of my first chapter of the book to the publisher and co-author for a look. Feeling a little vulnerable and curious about how it will measure up.

In a conversation with the co-author on Saturday we agreed to send each other what we'd written so far, ccing our coach at the publisher. Although I was completely unsure how my writing would stack up, it is a great relief to know that someone else has a chance to tell me why it stinks (assuming that it does). The idea was to let each other take an early look and make suggestions.

The last time I did any significant graded writing was a paper on Leaders in Technology for my master's degree, back in 2000. Yea, I write this weblog but I don't spend a great deal of time on making sure the writing is clean and conveying the right message.
