Heavy Reading

I’m overdue to revise my manuscript. Somehow the month of March got away from me between travel and travel and freelance work and also some more travel. But it’s finally time to dig into the task at hand.


Three of my beta readers passed their notes along through notes in .doc format and two printed my entire book out and made hand-written margin notes; these were mailed to me.

Today, I tore open two envelopes and pulled their copies of the manuscript out – and they are heavy. It feels important, somehow. It’s both literally and symbolically weighty.

I’m excited and scared and intimidated and thrilled. I can’t wait to dig into this. I have a lot of work ahead of me but I have to remember the team of great people behind me, rooting for me and my work to succeed. I’m going to do okay.
