Woot Woot!! I must admit it feels pretty good. That isn’t surprising in itself, it’s more that I had to fight through an incipient head cold and some basic sleep deprivation to get across the finish line. So I’m a little surprised that I am feeling anything other than a strong desire to crawl under the covers at this late hour.
I do have a nice smile on my face as I write this. I know that there are still flaws in the book and I’m trying not to analyze them just yet because I want to focus on feeling good about my accomplishment. I also know that this book is better than it was January 1st and that’s really cool. I’m glad that I read it page 1 to 397 editing as I went. It was tough work, but I needed to do that and it’s a better book for the effort.
So what’s next? The first next is getting it out to my readers. I have 2.5 readers lined up from my writers’ group and I’ll probably solicit a couple more. And, of course, there are the Stylish Ladies anxiously awaiting my draft. Tomorrow I will convert it to pdf and with a little luck I’ll figure out how to convert it to the kindle format and I’ll start pushing it out to my readers. I guess I might take tomorrow evening off (it is Friday after all) and have a little celebration.
