“If there’s a book you really want to read
but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.”
First, I held my book in my head. Next, I moved it to my computer. This weekend, I held my manuscript in my arms for the first time! It was magical (and heavy). I couldn’t help but think, “I wrote all that? Moi!?”
There are still many steps before my narcolepsy memoir will be available for sale. Believe me, I’m working on it. With so many cases being diagnosed worldwide in the wake of the H1N1 flu vaccine/epidemic, I believe time is of the essence.
For now, I must celebrate the small stuff. Writing a book is a long and lonely process. At times: overwhelming, painful and maddening. This little moment of glory helps to fuel me onward – towards the final product, a book with a cover and a barcode. Imagine that!
