Authors, how was your last shepherding experience?
Here is a scale of shepherding excellence to think about.

Shepherds, where do you think your "sheep" would rate you?

1. Oh, I had a shepherd?

2. My shepherd made contact, and promised to send comments.

3. My shepherd actually sent a set of comments.

4. My shepherd was positive and supportive.

5. My shepherd was prompt.

6. The comments from my shepherd had substance; not just grammar and wording.

7. My shepherd gave me two or more sets of comments.

8. I learned more about patterns from my shepherd.

9. I learned more about my own topic.

10. My shepherd helped me learn more about myself.
