not hungover


On Saturday, March 9, 2019, I typed ~fini~ and sent it off to a professional for an overview.

It was started, give or take, in the spring of 2014 and didn't get a title, a name until a long time after that.

For no other reason, I feel hungover.



ps. just got off the phone with a very talented advisor.  I may have the words corralled for the moment, but we are a long way from home (published). This was fully expected and I'm fine with it. More learning, more adventures lie ahead.

Just making a thing, calling it done, after such a long time, surprised me. I dawdled over the final scene a long time. Then a wistful sadness over not having anyone there, in the moment, to share it with. Lord knows my family and friends are sick of my "mania".

Then the "ick" sets in, knowing what lies ahead: having the work raked over by PAID professionals (and the expenses that go with that), the marketing that I have to learn about and do on my own. The list of "things to do" is long.

This is a reason most first time authors have three in progress. And then it takes years to get them ready. I have sometimes thought, reading book 2--that it should have been (or was) book one- just took longer to get ready. You are now going to learn how to make ALL THE OTHER BOOKS better. Bravo. Much love to you!

What a huge accomplishment! And hard as it was, I'll bet you start another one before too long, in spite of having a lot of "grunt" work ahead on your first child! It's the journey, not the destination, that counts...
