I've sent the first half of my "representative chapter" in so they can get a feel for what I am trying to do. I suppose that this could make or break the book. For all I know, they could read what I've put together, have a "polite" conversation with my agent and it will all be over. I don't expect that my writing is that bad, but I did notice that my conversational style does not match that of my coauthor. In fact, I can't help by use my patented Ovidian humor, so something is going to have to give.
I write quite a bit, so I shouldn't have been too surprised, but all of my writing work over the weekend was, after I properly formatted the pages, reduced to about 8.5 pages to text (how's that for excessive commas? You won't see that in the book
I also found myself wondering if 1/3 == 1/3 is always true. Floating point math is tricky, so I certainly didn't want to mislead anyone, but it was peripheral to what I was doing so I didn't delve into it too much. Hmm
