If you haven't done so in a separate message to Margy, please describe the current state of your manuscript. What have you written? How long is it (in pages or words), and how close is it to "done"? If you're writing a book proposal/monograph/dissertation, please describe your current plan for the chapter divisions. If you're writing an article, please list your target journal(s) if possible. EXAMPLE A: "I have a rough draft of the first chapter (8,000 words), a detailed outline of the second chapter, rough notes on the third chapter, and nothing for the fourth chapter. I'm not sure how to begin the Intro or Conclusion. The second chapter will be a heavily revised version of an article I published last year." EXAMPLE B: "I am working on an article based on research I did for my dissertation; I need to condense and reframe a 300-page dissertation into a 10,000-word article, which I hope to publish in X journal."
