All boxed up and ready to go!

Well, for better or worse, the manuscript is in a box awaiting its journey to the editor. I will be mailing it out tomorrow morning. I have mixed emotions. Mostly, I am thrilled to be moving forward and going to the next step. I am pretty sick of writing and am looking forward to my vacation from Sick Girl Speaks.
On the other hand, I feel obsessive, like the book is incomplete and I should hold onto it and rewrite most of the chapters! I don't think I will ever feel like it is good enough. I suppose I should just get used to that feeling....

On another note...I will be flying to San Francisco on Friday. This is a major big deal for me. San Fran is my favorite place on earth. I lived there while I was waiting for my lung transplant and have not been back since I left 8 years ago. I have never had the joy of walking the hills of the Bay Area without struggling for breath. This trip will be a testimony for just how far I've come and just how far I can go...I will also be turning 34 while I am there!

Here's to the next chapter!

I've been 'meaning' to write a book for years. I truly appreciate the magnitude of your accomplishment.

Happy birthday!

Congrats on finally finishing and enjoy your trip to SF - I've only been there once and I LOVED it.
