Editing Emotions

Receiving proof copies of new book: Yay! Look, that is MY new book!

 

Beginning editing: It won't be bad. I've read this hundreds of times.

 

50 pages into editing: I swear I already fixed that stuff.

 

100 pages into editing: Did I send this to other people? I need to apologize to my beta readers.

 

150 pages into editing: Why am I crying? I wrote it! That's a good sign, right?

 

200 pages into editing: Alright, I think I'm on a roll.

 

250 pages into editing: Maybe I should have said more about that...no, less...maybe it's alright.

 

300 pages into editing: It will never be ready!

 

350 pages into editing: Well, that part wasn't too bad.

 

400 pages into editing: So many emotions! Where is my wine?
