Finished!

I spent nine hours today editing my book so I could give the publisher my final draft before the Holidays and just be done.

I literally, and I'm not kidding, read every single word of it out loud so I would know if it made sense or not.

The only problem with that? Is that Ginger, my dog, thinks that every time I speak I'm talking to her. So she stood next to my desk and wagged her tail for nine hours today.

She's going to sleep good tonight, I think.


But anyway. I hit send just a moment ago. It's out of my hands.

I'm sure I'll have more work to do. But for now, the book is dedicated, the acknowledgments are written, I wrote my bio, and I edited the hell out of it.



WOOT!

I want to say something bigger than "congratulations" here--because the passion, effort, time, and sweat you've put into it is bigger than a word. I guess I can just say I respect the hell out of you and think you hung the moon.
