It's delivery day, the day I send my newest baby, my pride and joy, my current manuscript for out to meet the world. As with the birth of a child, there's a flurry of last-minute activity. A final read-through of the story, the careful administration of a few finishing touches, followed by huge sigh of relief that, yes, everything came together the way I imagined it would. Then, one final push to get the manuscript out the door.
Of course, as with a birth, that's only the start. There'll be revisions and several rounds of edits, dedications and letters to write before my baby slips into a beautiful new jacket (cover art). But all that is down the road.
Because, today is delivery day. Catch you later.
