Don't get me wrong, I've been waiting for this time for a while. I'm very excited and can't wait to see my ARC (advance reader's copy---- I know how much my non-writing friends love it when I explain these terms). Yet, the moment is a touch bittersweet. Hmm, bittersweet... I bet chocolate can make me feel better. I can use chocolate for celebration or as a comfort food. Sorry...I got side-tracked there.
So, today I'm going to think of those early days when The Red Umbrella was only an idea bouncing around in my head. Tomorrow I'll start on my work-in-progress again, but for now... just pass me some Oreos.
