Locking the Book

Monday, April 30th, 2012 | The Writing Life | 7 Comments

It is one of the best feelings in the world to hear that a manuscript I’ve been working on for months is locked. The editor is happy with it, I’m happy with it, and it can go on to be copy edited  and eventually, come out into the world. It is a thrill to realize that the book I love is on its way, one step closer to coming into the hands of readers. It is exciting to know that the plot is smoothed and developed, the characters are living on the page, and that all the fun I’ve had will soon be available to others. Or so I hope. Surely, if I have fun, the readers will, right?

Though doubts and fears still haunt the writing process at every stage, joy fills each step, too. Moving one step closer to the beauty of launch day is a very joyous thing.
