I've thought a lot about the book today. I haven't been really thinking about the story, but all that has gone into it. I've thought about all of the time I've worked on it, how much time I spent editing and how much my content editor spent on it, money I've spent on it, and now more money..., the time that my beta readers spent on it. It's crazy. It's just a process that doesn't seem to end, but the story is done...and hopefully there is now a real end in sight. I've thought a lot about the encouragement I've gotten over it from most who have read it, and the reading between the lines of who might not have loved it. I've thought about all of these things, but at the end of the day, I'm still happy about it. The book will be out of my hands for the next month. This time, I'll handle the process much better. This book has taken more time than anything over the past two years, and I'm finally to the point where I'll just sit and trust. My word, I just looked at how much I've written about the damn book. The word count is nearly as high as the book itself!
I have so many things on my mind today. Too many things. Things I should just sit with. So, I should end this before I ramble on about more things you don't want to hear about. My mind is a crazy thing sometimes, it never rests. Especially when I'm laid out for a week. The bottom line is, I can't control everything, no matter how much I want to. I wish I could change the way I thought about some things, but then again, I wouldn't have the good that comes with this never ending crazy ass brain of mine. It's what lets me write, kick ass at F/Marry/Kill, and entertains me in mind numbing meetings.
I wish you all a fantastic week. It's our week, we can make whatever we want out of it. That's pretty cool, right?
Oh, and how about them Seahawks!
My fave song right now. Is it just me, or could this dude be straight out of Making A Murderer?
