By the book

A couple of weeks ago I signed a contract for a book. Now I'm knee deep in writing it...or at least ankle deep. The working title is A Field Guide to the Molecular World - what a scientist, particularly a chemist sees as she walks about. I've got a reasonable working draft of a chapter done - on molecular clocks. There are natural stopwatches and timers all around, if you know how to read them.

I've written about 1500 words a day so far...you can watch the count on the sidebar.


  1. this sounds cool to me.

  2. It IS cool. I am excited for you.
    I have a confession to make though. I made it through high school and college and never took a chemistry course.

    However, I had a daughter who made an "A" in organic chemistry. Does that redeem me?

  3. That's so cool!!
