So after 2 ink cartridges and being rescued by my neighbor and her printer to print off the final 20 pages that my printer failed to do, CALICO is now on paper and out to my beautiful and talented graphic artist for the first read through.
I am terrified but curious as to how she will react. Mostly terrified.
Then step two, it will be off to the next Beta reader for their input. A scary but necessary measure in order to make sure I didn’t miss anything important in the manuscript before sending it off to my wonderful editor.
Anywho, it is a huge accomplishment for me to get it out of my head and onto paper. AND I just like holding it in my hands…cause it feels AWESOME. haha
Alright.. that is it for updates. Big hugs and bigger dreams 🙂
It is Thursday morning, September 15, 2016. Launch day.
I am trying hard not to overthink anything, to smile and drink my coffee through the jitters vibrating throughout my soul. Slowly breathing in and out, steadying the façade of calmness on the outside.
Six bells will come tonight whether I am ready or not to receive it and I know this.
It has been a long 2 years coming for me to get to this point and at a few moments, I wondered what it would be like to get here. Well today I know. It is such an incredible surreal feeling that all I can do is just exhale.
I don’t know who will show, or what will happen but I do know that I made it, ready or not. I am here, book in hand and awaiting what the universe serves me with a smile.
Dreams do come true, you just have to believe in them and more importantly, you have to believe in yourself. Always, even if no one else does. It is your dream, so defend it.
Big hugs to all and
Cheers from the Shadows,
