It feels a lot like the ninth month of pregnancy right now. After many years of planning, years of remembering, and almost a year of writing (and a whole lot of texts to my mom to get facts and dates right), the manuscript is finally written.
There's still plenty to do before "my baby" can make its appearance, however. This website, for one thing. Then there's editing, formatting, and cover design that all need to be completed. But it's close. So close.
Will people like my baby? I wonder. Will it be received the way I intend? Or worse, will the whole world take one look and shrug their shoulders in indifference? I want to scream, HEY, LOOK! THIS IS SPECIAL!
But we'll just have to wait and see. Time will tell.
