I had finished looking through my manuscript one more time before it goes for formatting. My agent, in his not so subtle way, was pushing me to move forward. Let go.
First Born is my first book. It's scheduled to launch in May. I've combed through the pages so many times that my
cat is saying "enough already" and so is everyone around me.
Later in the day, I spoke with my editor, Brittiany Koren of Written Dreams. In the middle of a sentence she stopped me. "Tricia. Breathe."
"What?" I asked. She reminded me that writers are never satisfied. I could edit this piece until I'm eighty. I realized she was right.
Without letting go I won't be open to the new opportunities around me. I also have to work on edits for Book 2 in the Lily Moore Series and Young Adult piece Into the Wind. Not to mention a series of shorts called "The Darkling Chronicles" require my attention. I have roughs complete for all these works and they are just waiting for final finishes.
Does it get easier? This first one has me by the ankle and won't let go!
