WhatsApp, Whitehead, Williams, Wupocalypse. I enjoy indexing! Am I alone?

Is it time for a silly pre-spring vacation post? Well, yes. I might be in need of a serious rest… But am I alone in my enjoyment of creating an index? I need to ask. Is this a known condition shared by others?

I spent the most part of a summer vacation back in 2016 doing one. I was advised to try and get some help (research money, not medical) with Affect and Social Media (doubt that would really happen in the current crisis). I bet indexing software is crap too (never tried it). Not sure why, but the other editors didn’t seem keen to do it 😉 They were nonetheless very pleased when I said I liked doing them.

I must add, it’s not the words themselves, but the relations between these lists that gets me excited. Cameron, David followed by Chemsex or Epidemic, Facebook, Fear & Feelings of affordance. Wow! Trolling, Trump, TV debates & Twitter. My favourite – WhatsApp, Whitehead, Williams, Wupocalypse.

Here’s all words and phrases (raw and unedited) I have so far – excitedly awaiting the galleys so I can add page numbers 🙂 Is that as sad as it sounds?
