It starts here

Today is an auspicious day — Jen, Amanda and I are sending the completed manuscript to our editor at Chronicle Books. Two hundred Polaroids and 30,000 words of Polaroid-y goodness – DONE. The edits and design will come next, but for now, it’s really satisfying to know we have made it this far!

Which of course means that from today I have one month left to finish my other book, the one penned by me alone. And I’m feelin’ the pressure, my friends–hoo boy! Sas sent me this link the other day when i was feeling particularly overwhelmed, and now, whenever i feel the pressure rising, I tell myself to just keep swimming just keep swimming just keep swimming

    1 down 1 to go then! Must be a good feeling to have one all packaged up and sent on its way. Cup of tea or possibly bottle of gin (i won’t judge!) are in order!
