Today is a good day. I feel very relaxed right now. It doesn’t hurt that I’m getting a pedicure as I type, but that’s not the real reason. I just feel like I have a lot to look forward to on this journey toward publication. I don’t know where it will lead me, but I’m okay with the unknown. For now, anyway. People who know me well are fully aware that my OCD will only allow me to flail around for a very short time before I start to get antsy.
I just printed out my final manuscript. Of course, I had to check with my editor twice this morning (before 7 a.m.) that it really was polished and perfect and ready to submit (or whatever). After telling me for the umpteenth time to relax and stop being so insecure, I decided today was the day that it was ready for prime-time.
So he’s reading while I’m getting my feet scrubbed. I can’t wait to get his feedback. He’s been so amazing and supportive throughout this whole process. I’m really lucky to have such a wonderful partner who is so invested in me. =)
Just as an aside, it’s kind of hard to blog about my book when nobody really knows what I’m talking about. The assurance that “you’ll see what I mean sometime in the not-so-distant future” will lose its luster pretty quickly. I need to figure out new things to chat about in the interim.
And since my mind is so clear today, I actually have time to think about things like whether or not I want to take a shot with some new fake eyelashes tonight. I have some really awesome bejeweled ones that’ll look fantastic with my outfit! Like I said last night, I’m taking the weekend OFF! =)
