To the Editor!

I sent my book to the editor this morning! Done! Elation! What a rush. There’s such a feeling of satisfaction when I finish a project like this and nine months of effort results in the delivery of a perfect new novel.

I hope she likes it. What if she says it’s terrible? What if there are big problems in the plot or characters or… Oh. Yeah. This feeling comes now.

There’s nothing like shipping off the manuscript to that First Reader to shake a writer’s courage.

The only cure is to start writing another book.
