editing puts me on edge

I’m editing and formatting all of the chapters for A History of Habit: From Aristotle to Bourdieu, which will be published by Lexington Books. I’m really happy with the essays, which have been provided by an outstanding group of scholars. Adam Hutchinson (my co-editor) and I believe this book will have wide appeal to people both inside and outside philosophy. Getting all of these essays to look the same, however, is exhausting. I don’t know if I have the constitution for this!

    I *love* editing, but then I have a lot of experience. That said, I hate editing my own work. I have the constitution for one but not the other…

    Good luck!

    Yeah, I guess I should clarify that it’s not the editing that’s tough for me, but the coordination of more than a dozen people. Waiting for email replies, fixing citations, etc. It’s really the coordination that’s tough.

    administration in higher-ed is a venture in the Augean stables, how people posit anything (poetry aside) cybernetic/machine-like onto the operations of such realms escapes me.

    oops one too many “like”s there, is there an editor in the house?
