the long night

So it appears we are at the end of another production cycle for another issue of EON. Achingly close to the end in fact, but not there yet, as I’m waiting to get some information out of CCP in order to make sure the cover feature isn’t a six-page cluster of blank pages.

We have one day to go until we miss our print schedule, which doesn’t leave much time to write and design what is supposed to be the centrepiece of the magazine, but I’m hopeful CCP will come good at the very last minute, even if it does mean I’ll have to pull an all-nighter in order to get everything written up. As we all know, CCP are last-minute kinda guys, and a deadline isn’t much of a deadline if it doesn’t involve some last-minute panic and at least one night of both-end candle-burning.

  2. Yeah, been there so many times on digital courseware development projects. Not fun to be sitting there stressing about whether someone is going to pull their weight as they committed to doing. I don’t miss that kind of negative stress. G’luck!

  3. Who knew the amount of stress that actually goes into making an EON issue!

    Good luck mate and here’s to CCP getting things to you on time!

  4. Not only didn’t the cavalry arrive, they never left the fort. Not sure they ever intended to. Oh well, I best circle up the wagons and try and survive the long night ahead :)

  5. I know your pain. I used to work in print as well. I’m sure it’ll work out.

  6. Actually, apart from the last week, the process of making this EON has been very good. Just a few kinks to sort out for next time – I hope.
