Managing Projects

I’m having a little trouble keeping track of all the book projects, etc. for the next year, going to write it out.

It’s going to look a little nuts, so please keep in mind that many of these are the culmination of several years’ work, and just all happen to be finishing at once. (Also, yes, I work basically all the time.)
