I submitted the final draft of the manuscript of Bird on Fire to the publishing house today. Now it goes to the copy editor for a final comb through, then to the publisher for styling and other lovely appearance things, and then to print!
So, of course I called my mom to tell her the news. As we talked she asked about sales of my first book, Glitter in the Sun. I said, meh… once in a while a new sale will show up…
But then she remembered and reminded me of this verse -
Every great thing, every great movement, every great artist started somewhere.
While I don’t know if I will ever be considered “great”, it is nice to be reminded that a small start is worth rejoicing in.
