Where was my book one year ago?

Wow, this is where I was a year ago

I had just finished the story of my trip to Africa. Wow, that's all I can say. I had an idea of where I was with it a year ago, but didn't realize this until I was looking through my other blog to see what I wrote about during the Christmas season last year. I am so sorry to go on about this but sometimes these things, which some would call coincidence but I am convinced is God at work, these things still blow my mind.

So, let me try to focus and tell you what I accomplished this week. Ok, I  can't focus because THE BOOK IS FINISHED!!!!! Yes, it's true. Everything is done, everything is edited to death, everything has been ok'ed and given the stamp of approval.

Ok, well maybe not EVERYTHING. As we speak the publisher is getting the final proof - but an actual book this time - printed up. It will be mailed to me next week. I have to analyze the entire package one last time, give it one last stamp of approval and then those books will be rolling off the press.

YIKES!!! Do you really want to know anymore than that? Coz I don't care what ROW80 goals I met this week (nine out of eighteen) or where I finished with NaNoWriMo (11,0557 words, way short of 50,000).
Yup, I could still have that nervous breakdown.

    1. Thanks, Mark. It has been a long road, but the end's in sight.

  2. Congratulations, Chris! That's amazing. Yeah, the rest of the goals sorta pale in comparison to such a big victory. Enjoy it!

    1. Thanks, Michael. Sometimes it's hard to accept that we really can't do everything at one time. But this accomplishment is the biggy.
