The eleventh hour has finally come. The second draft has been turned in to my editors and I cannot tell you the relief. It's been a long exhausting road and I can finally breath. I am nervous an a little anxious for the feedback. I never really thought I would get this far and I hope it is the start of a whole new adventure. I have been reluctant to really expose myself to much because the fear of not being good enough. I've struggled with self doubt for so long, but to get this far is a major achievement. I think about how long I have been writing, and I look back and realize this is what I have been waiting for. What is the next step as I wait to hear back? Figure out how to promote the book. I admit, I am not really good at this part and it is something I have been struggling with. I like things to work out on their own but it is not reality. It's a comfort zone problem. I need to break those walls if this is ever going to work.
