Yesterday (Dec 28th) I started reviewing my sample chapter, and making changes to my ReST files. I even added a sidebar for good measure (and to experiment with the ReST “sidebar” directive :)

Making progress, albeit slowly. A finished proposal should be on the way soonish rather than later.

Hey Diego,

Remember the lean startup line:

bq. If you’re not embarrassed by version 1 you didn’t launch soon enough.

Obviously, you don’t want to send in something that’s horrible, but you can spend months (years really) tweaking the wording to get it just right. I’m pointing it out as it’s something I struggle with all the time. Writing new material isn’t something that’s horribly difficult for me, but editing goes slowly for me because I constantly refactor my writing.

What’s the “sidebar” directive?
