Welcome back from the abyss

The beta crunch is finally over. On Friday, my documentation team finally delivered our help files and manuals for the beta release of the product. And I went home and went to bed. I slept for the entire weekend, except when I was away from home on previously scheduled engagements (Diversions on Saturday, and the memorial service for Miles’s stepfather on Sunday).
Now it’s Monday, and time for my life to get back to normal. Last week was a remarkable experience — I’ve always said that I do some of my best work under extreme pressure at the last minute, and this was no exception — but one can only live for so long on adrenaline, coffee, and three to four hours of sleep per night. I’m proud of what we accomplished, but I think I’ve had enough white-knuckle technical writing for a while.
