Well, today the files have officially gone to the printers. That's been 11 months of continuous work, sorting, liaising, notating, editing, notating again, and again, and again, and again, 1st draft, 2nd draft, 3rd draft, 4th draft, .... there are so many things I would recommend to the next person who may do this job (I won't be doing it again)! I can't count the number of hours in this as so many have been involved and each have given up a lot time to do this. For me, this weekend alone was 24 hours of solid work, and it's been like that for months. My family is happy to have me back - their mantra had become 'I hate the worship book' and 'when will you finish it'. But soon, it will all be exciting once again when those books arrive, looking pretty and brand new (and then even more errors will jump out and say 'ha gotcha'). Many have told me that they're excited about the new music, and it feels worthwhile when we actually hear the music being used for the reason intended - praise to God!
