The book idea is a good one, but the problem is finding the time to do it.

If you really want a book then you should work out the chapters you want covered, and the sort of content you want in any chapter. You've also got to pitch it to a certain level; beginner, med and advanced, or, somehow, and this is where it gets difficult, pitch to all.

I've 2 books in prep right now, and a ton of papers, and I've been unable to pick up none over the past 8 months. It's very frustrating!

What would be REALLY amusing would be if we all wrote each others sections. It could be put in the Top 10 Comedy Section down at Waterstones....
