Pulling Back the Curtain on Book Writing

I look forward to reading Michael Newman and Elana Levine's new book on TV and cultural legitimization.

In the meantime, Michael has a good post reflecting on the book writing process. This is becoming one of my favorite blog post genres, in fact. Pulling back the curtain not only lets non-scholars know a bit more about what we do (as in Tim Burke's series of posts), but it allows scholars to see each others' work habits and get inspired by each other.

Thanks for posting this, Chris. I like "pulling back the curtain" as a name for a blog genre. I agree that we benefit from knowing each other's work routines and agendas.
