To You From Us book
This was not going to be our next book. Definitely. But then, we didn’t know we were pregnant already.
Perhaps we should have had an inkling of what was in store when we received Dan Rose’s reply to our bid to enlist him on our team in what we felt was a splendid concept for an ensuing writing project about qualitative researchers who were studying themselves. We were rather puzzled that Dan’s long and detailed response scarcely mentioned our grand vision. He talked instead of the need for a book about and to people who write research-a book similar in spirit and tone and presentation to the one that two of us had just completed. So, we took Dan’s response to be his more pressing musings as a researcher and teacher rather than as a direct message to us and called him to discuss our original idea. After all, there are so many books-interesting, useful books-about writing. Do we need another one? From this vantage point, we can now see how events already afoot and those soon to come would convince us unfalteringly that the book you are holding is the only one we cared to write. Our project with Dan will have to wait.
