Not all bad: my word tally remains painfully low, but then I was tweaking code all evening, and that went quite well, I think. TEI XML is a bugger to be sure, but on the other hand when you have a set of restrictions it is comfortably easy going – unlike writing, where the blank page can take you anywhere..
Haven’t really played around with code much at all over the last 18 months or so, except for the occasional html or wiki document, and I’d forgotten that I quite enjoy it. (Pays to be geeky and obsessive, huh.) This is a good thing, since I have another 120+ documents to encode and correct and proofread and debug and proofread and tweak – I’m sure I’ll be sick of it by next summer. But for now, it’s going ok.
