Waiting for Proof

Well, I've finally finished all editing for Solitary Sky.  Truthfully, I could go back and change little stuff, rearrange sentences, add, chop, and more ad infinitum...but I had to cut myself off.  I had to be firm and remind myself it will never be perfect and I don't want to spend the rest of my life editing.  (O.O)

Tuesday of next week I will get my proof copy and if all is well, SolSky will be released mid to late next week. If I have to make changes (god forbid) and send it back there will be more of a delay.  Obviously Tuesday I will be able to give more specific info. ;o)

The whole process of writing this book...finishing it and going through all the details of getting it published has been such a crazy experience for me.  Crazy because it has encompassed so many different emotions from the highest highs to the lowest lows.  It's been a real education not just in the literal sense, but also in the discovery of who I am here at the beginning of my 5th decade of life...as well as who I was always meant to be.

The journey is of course ongoing, but I'm taking what I've learned with me...and hoping the crazy ride never stops. =)



  1. How great it must be to finally finish edits. I seem to edit as I write (I know, I shouldn't) so I don't know if I'll EVER finish the damn thing.

  2. Vicki, I did the same thing, editing as I wrote...I couldn't help myself. =P And still I went crazy with the editing after, up until the day I finally cut myself off! lol

    With my 2nd book I am seriously going to try to avoid editing until I'm done...not that it's *entirely* possible...but there were many lessons learned from this 1st go-round...that was just one of them. ;o)

    Good luck with your writing...give in to your urge to edit, but remember to cut yourself off eventually. ;o) xoxo
