Today I'm working on spinning fiber that might be used on the cover of my book. It's exciting and I'm also sure that I have lost the ability to spin a viable yarn.
That in a nutshell is what working on a book is like. Actually what writing anything for publication is like, at least for me.
First, I'm so excited about the writing and so grateful that I get to do it. I still can't believe this is my job. Then I do outlines, research, write and rewrite.
By the time I turn in my writing I'm sure I know nothing about the topic. But when the writing is published, I am proud and show it everyone that crosses my path. It happens every time.
