I am delighted. I have finished my 1st draft of my book. What has been interesting is noting the process. I had really struggled with having worked on my book for so long without making progress. Well, if I had not done all that writing as I went, I would not have the book today. I wrote down stories and peoples’ description of shame over the years. If I had not done that I wouldn’t have remembered them. If I wrote it down I had asked permission to do so. So, it helped me. Instead of being upset that I did it this way, I can see the process. Another lovely example of “trusting process.” It doesn’t always look like I want it to, and it always turns out to be for the best.
I now start the rewrite and editing. I still have much to do, but I had a dream where I was handed the finished book. I can see it now. YES!!!!!!!
