Same place, different time.
More from thereabouts.
A planned announcement that is, due for sometimes next year and it goes like this:
I am proud, excited and scared shitless to announce my forthcoming __*), Homes, that will be published in __**)
*) book, ebook, zine, set of prints or whatever the format.
**) month, 2014, exact date to be decided.
So, it’s an announcement for an announcement. How meta. Seriously though, I’m going to have to ask you to bear with me, this announcement (the one due next year) is probably something that can only happen in small steps. Micro small steps.
This one will almost definitely not make it through the editing process.
Posted from there before, not unlikely that I post more later.

In my opinion:
I think the WordPress Publish dialog box needs to be arranged a little differently.
That, as it is, it
pushes encourages people to publish, when what they might want to do was to write and edit and write again until they had truly polished their article and wanted to actually send it out to the world.
To make the post editor more draft friendly. Perhaps it could even encourage more thoughtful publishing and reduce the amount of crap on the internet (mine included). Like; sure the Publish button is here for you to use whenever you feel for it. You can also preview your article or save it as a draft and come back to it tomorrow after you’ve had time to give it some more thought, or discuss the content with a fellow human.
Especially at WordPress.com the Publish button gets all the attention while Preview, Draft, and Delete disappear too much I think. This is somewhat better with WordPress (I’m looking at 3.7.1) which has a higher contrast buttons.
Still, I believe they should be grouped.
The downside: The Publish dialog box would take more space. Personally, I think it would be worth it.
