Time to Let It Go
Today I reversed how I worked and wrote on the manuscript for the new book first. I had to take a break before I moved from the computer into my living room to do my allotment of proofreading. It was hard to let go of Casey and all her shenanigans and go to thinking about Molly and all of hers. Finally, I’d cleared my mental palate by reading the newspaper and sharing a bagel and cream cheese with one of my cats.
I just had the last 40 or so pages to proof read. Since it was the climax and end of the book, the pace picked up and I had to keep reminding myself I was looking for mistakes and not just reading. I hope that it is a good sign for the book. And then suddenly there I was at the end of the story. I looked over the patterns and the recipes and then it was done.
Time to say goodbye to it. I felt such a wave of melancholy. Like seeing a dear friend off on a journey. You have to let go and hope they will soar.
