"I've nearly finished the first draft for you to read. I have already decided on the pictures to go with it so it should be coming soon. I haven't written anything like this since I left college - I'm not sure whether its fun or torture! I wish I were stronger editorially. It will be interesting to see what people think."
Don't worry about it. My wife and I will definitely help out with the editing process. Actually, I am not sure if I am a help or not in this area or just a big pain in the butt. Smile.
I am very much excited about your piece though.
