Hurrah and, Whee and wow and whew…..
I am such a happy and rather exhausted bunny.
A couple of days before my actual deadline, I finished the manuscript, photos, diagrams and photo coding for my new book: Peg Looms & Weaving Sticks: Woven Projects & Techniques, Basics & Beyond.
Wow. BEFORE deadline. Wow.
My lovely editor is off in Scotland perusing fibery goodness there, so bless her heart, she has said to me to take a week or so to do the proofreading. I love my editor.
Taking a week or so to do the proofreading is the most sanity saving way of doing the slow and essential plod plod plod through the manuscript, so I am eternally grateful that she has suggested this. Like I said. I. Love. My. Editor.
The final couple of weeks of finishing the book were grindingly intense and the last few days were proper pinchers, so I have been having some delicious recovery naps in the last couple of days.
Changing gears and shifting back into ‘real life’ is a quietly satisfying process.
I got explosively inspired for the ~NEXT~ book, so have been galloping into it, being incredibly inspired and feeling all excited and delighted and then taking another recovery nap.
And, now…. for a few hours of sipping tea and sending my eyeballs on a mission across the screen:
Must. Find. All. The. Errors.
Must. Polish. Any. Clumsiness.
And, then…. I’ll take another lovely nap.
I love this book.
I love the next one.
