You can tell when ...

you can tell when we've got a book going into that last stretch of revision...

because the floors become covered in typescript pages with red ink, typescript pages with blue ink, pages in neat piles, piled pages looking as random as downed autumn oak leaves...

that's what my room looks like: a trail of old pink rug leading to the desk, with the rest of the floor coated in paper, some typescript down, some typed-side up.

I have a fresh carton of paper, too. Watch out world, Saltation is in the last stages of the race.
