it's done!

I'm sorry to be so long in posting, friends. I've had my face in my computer almost constantly. I've been up since 3 a.m. this morning. I am exhausted. But I just e-mail the manuscript--Use Your Words: A Writing Guide for Mother--to my editor. (It hasn't sunk in yet. I just feel numb.)


Andrea suggested having a virtual margarita party to celebrate. What I'd really like at this point is a nap. But my 83-year-old dad has been watching Zoe and my nephew all morning, and I need to relieve him. And tonight: dance recital. Oh yes. And I ma even in a small portion of one of Stella's numbers. Very scary. I know.


I'll be more present here now. I promise.

Hi Kate, rmemeber me, one of your Literary Reflections writers? Anyway, I just HAD to write back, because I think I know that feeling. Not to an editor yet, but every time I finish a revision or a draft, that's just where I am. And no matter how exhausted you are, remember ot bask a little :) Cheers and congrats!

Congratulations, Kate! You're amazing! Too bad you can't catch your breath today. The work of a mother who writes is never done. :)

Congratulations! I think it seems perfectly apropos that you should have to take care of the girls and go to a dance recital on the same day your book is finished. That's life as a mom, huh?
Great job, and I'll look forward to buying the book!

Well, congrats on turning in your manuscript. That's HUGE! I will make a margarita over here tonight, perhaps, and join you if you decide on the virtual party.

Congratulations! Leave it to the universe now. And instead of a margarita party, I think we should have a nap party. All mums are eligible to join in :)
