Yesterday I did one of the most emotionally draining things ever. I clicked “send” on an e-mail that had an entire book manuscript attached to it.
I purposefully did said deed at my favorite coffee shop for a couple of reasons:
1. The theme of the book is coffee.
2. I wrote a large portion of the book there.
3. I wouldn’t dare melt down, which is exactly what I felt like doing.
The funny thing (well it’s funny now), is that I had to send it two more times. For some unknown reason, the inter-tubes weren’t working correctly and the editor only received the first ten pages. Finally, Kedron zipped the file for me and then everything was fine. Well except for my stomach. It felt like I’d been at Cedar Point riding roller coasters like I was twelve again.
Then I tried to write a blog post for Circle of Friends. Apparently, I have exhausted my supply of words because I kept looking at the word count thinking, “Really? Only 300 words? Why does it feel like 3,000?” So I kept it short and sweet. You can read that post here.
I give you my heartfelt thanks for all of your prayers, kind words, and encouragement over the past six months. Writing the book has been an incredible journey, and while this isn’t the finish line, it is a giant milestone. Thank you for everything.
