Today was the official half deadline for the book. I can’t believe how fast time has gone. I think it has taken the same amount of time to realize that this is really happening! Today there was no questioning reality as I packed my seven babies up and sent them off to my editor at Interweave (it’s always so hard to send off one, but seven?). It’s been a busy few months full of hard work, late nights, and math, math, and more math.
Thankfully, before I started on this massive project, I received some very good advice from designer friends who have been there, done that. Without their frank and helpful tips, I don’t think I could have stayed very calm or grounded during these last few months. Don’t get me wrong, I still had a freak out (or two), but for the most part I stayed cool, calm, and collected.
Before I get ahead of myself though, there is still a lot of work to go! Even though it was my half deadline, half of the projects aren’t finished. I think it will be a little easier to buckle down over the winter months however. Summer days have a certain siren song that soggy, wet, snowy, cold, grey winter days just can’t match. Time to go light the fire and brew up a big pot of tea, it’s gonna be a long winter!
