Remembering, of course, that today is Deadline Day for The Chapter.

I'm definitely going to have to teach Ana a few tricks. Firstly, how to make changes so that change tracking works sensibly. Secondly, how to do annotations. Thirdly, that when it's coming up to Deadline Hour on Deadline Day, you do not reply to an "Any comments?" question with a large list of detailed nitpicks. Something like "Pretty good, but let's redo the section on multitasking the next time around" would have been fine.

Right. So I've just bulk-accepted her changes, read through and fixed for consistency, and sent it. She can't complain that we didn't accommodate her changes. But I'm not happy, not happy at all. Irrational, I know, but something about it has put my nose out of joint and ruffled my feathers.

Now I'm going to make a cup of tea, breathe deeply for a while, be sociable a little, and then take a hot bath and lie down. I've made an absolutely l0ffly icon for Draco, BTW *quiet cheer*.
