I decided not to take on the rewrites of the three Beginning .NET 2.0 Databases books for APress today. Getting first drafts in for PDC in early September and the poor pay (damn that exchange rate) mean that the pride in getting the finished products out at Christmas is not worth the pain it will cause trying to fit writing in around a full time job which I'm currently enjoying. The odd chapter (write, edit or review) here and there is still a possibility but not a full book.
Of course having said this, I'll be made redundant next week, but that's a hurdle to jump when I get there. In the meantime, I intend to enjoy my now freed-up summer
