It's Manuscript Day

Today's the day I'm finishing up my book manuscript (Starcat's Corner: Essays on Pagan Living) and submitting it to my publisher. It's my deadline, not theirs. The publisher said that whenever I get it to them, they'll start there and get rolling on putting it into production. But I know myself, and if I don't have some kind of deadline, I can procrastinate indefinitely. So I decided to finish the book in May. Which means, today being the 31st, that I'm frantically working on getting all the details straight (or I will be, once I get home to my laptop, clean the kitchen, and get dinner made).

One thing that's been surprising and rather pleasing is that, throughout the process of putting the essays together and editing them (multiple times), I still enjoy reading them. I'm proud of these little creations, and glad that they're book-worthy. I'm so much looking forward to sharing them with you! And despite the title, I'm sure that the book will appeal to a wider audience than those who consider themselves Pagan. In fact, I think anyone who is looking to deepen their personal spirituality in the midst of day-to-day life would benefit from reading it.

Of course, I'm also beyond thrilled to be on this path to fulfilling a lifelong goal! I'll soon be a published author. I'm loving it already! And believe it or not, I'm already thinking ahead to my next book, and the one after that, and...
