I emailed my rough draft to my editor today. Pressing SEND was a bit scary, but also a huge relief.
It’s a huge milestone on this journey. It’s come so fast and I still have a ton of work to do (including finishing up a few chapters 😬), but I’m on my way.
I feel the content in this book is going to impact so many people’s lives. Whatever kind of editorial scrutiny that comes my way, I don’t really fear it if it gets me one step closer to helping the folks on the other side of it all.
Internally, I’m lying on the battlefield – called writing – completely exhausted… but I can’t express the great feeling of fulfillment, I am at this very moment, experiencing.
Please do the things that are in your heart. Please live out your dreams. Not just for your own gratification, which will be great, but for those who will be touched on the other side of your works completion.
