Scary… isn’t it?
Well it is for me at least. I mean, I want it to be published, that’s what I’ve always wanted that, but I guess I never really thought about it. When I was writing it there was just a rush towards the deadline, and then it was entered in the competition and there was the waiting. For to be actually published, for me to receive the ISBN number for my book in my email, well, that makes it real.
It’s like, I’m scared that once it gets published, it just won’t be any good. This is a silly reaction of course, numerous people who I trust not to be foolish enough to lie to me have told me it’s good, and more than that, I can feel that it’s good. The story runs through me and it is good.
So, onwards, through piles of editing and design choices. But the waiting is over, this will happen, before the year is out, I will be a published author.
