Feeling Euphoric

I have just typed the words The End, my book is complete and coming to a book store near you real soon (okay maybe I'm getting a little ahead of myself - but hey I have to dream) I'm doing a little happy dance at the moment, if only you could see. Just as well you can't really. Six months of writing have resulted in 32 chapters, containing 207 pages with 81301 words. Wow!

Now I put it away for a few weeks and let it gel before I begin the hard work of editing and proofing it. I also begin the education process of what I need to do to get it published, if in fact it's good enough. We'll cross that bridge when we come to it, because I know the hardest part is still ahead of me.

The thing is, I've done it. My most dearly held dream, goal - whatever you want to call it has been accomplished.

This has been my most productive week of holidays in years, maybe not the most enjoyable but definitely the most rewarding. Tomorrow I return to work and fingers crossed (because yes I'm riding a positive wave at the moment) our project will also get approval. Nine months of waiting for project approval and tomorrow is d-day.

This week is definitely a monumental one! Hope you've also had a super weekend.

Cheers, Fi

  1. Congratulations on the end of your book. Seems like I read about a author who by-passed all the publishing agencies and published her book herself as an e-book. Something to think about!

  2. Congratluations! That is surely worth celebrating. :)

  3. Congratulations love - I never doubted, when you were only little, that one day you would achieve your dream of writing a book. Your way with words never ceases to amaze me!

    I look forward to reading more of the tempter you gave us to read at Christmas time.

    Love & Congratulations
