Four years ago, almost to the day, I sat down and started writing a book. I had never written a book before. I had never attempted to write a book before. Until a couple of months earlier, I had never even considered writing a book.
And then I was. Starting at page one, with no idea how I would get from here to there.
After four years of writing and rewriting, editing and reediting, cutting, rewriting and re-reediting, I have arrived.
About 104,000 words typed, less about 20,000 words cut, equals 84,000 words on the page. It is done.
There has become here. I’m not sure how I made it but I did. The book is finished and the journey to publication begins.
And once again, I go from here to there.
