Intoxicated by the fresh scent of newly-printed matter, I have been on a formatting frenzy.
Even as we speak I am taking a break from page breaks and section breaks.
At the moment, the breaks are winning and I have requested that an extra dropdown tab from the menu be made available to me.
I have learned more about front matter, printers keys, colophons, TOCs and all manner of other typesetting tomfoolery in the last few days than in a lifetime of writing.
It is writing.
The mechanics of the process.
But it is also something else.
It is the clothes we wear.
The turn of a collar.
The button unbuttoned.
The single-breasted suit.
Have a great week.
