At Last

At last, my book has come along, my revising days are over, and life is like a song. Well, okay, not exactly. I did get my page count up to very close to where it should be. But what I need to do next is read the whole thing again and then decide what crucial scene or important detail is missing. Finding  a day to read uninterrupted from an unbound manuscript isn’t easy, those pages get messy and out of order, but I’m pretty sure tomorrow is the day. At last!

Have not been working on the novel at all for about a week now. Letting it sit before I read it again is always good. Also, I had stuff to do. But not tomorrow. Tomorrow is the final day before I send this one off to my publisher:)

  1. It took me a moment to get the song reference (it is very hot here today and I fear my brain is fried).

    But, yes, excellent! Wonderful to be nearing completion on such a big project. It must be nice and useful to have the experience of having completed other books so you have both the sense of what may still be needed and also the language to communicate what that need is. There’s great power in being able to define that. I know when I started painting again as an adult I used to get so frustrated. Things seemed “wrong” but I didn’t know why, or how to fix them. I needed to develop my eye and develop my art vocabulary.
