During the writing process, reading the same story every day, editing what you've written, anticipating where the story is going and then doing the final proofing and editing can be very wearing. When it's all said and done, I'll have read the same book MANY times and it stops being a story and becomes a "project" that needs to be finished. When that final proof/edit is completed and I send my baby out into the world, I rarely go back to re-read, unless I'm looking for something in particular. Upwards of ten times is plenty, thank you.

Now I'm reading along with the narrator to make sure she hasn't missed something or that she hasn't read something incorrectly (nice to know that doesn't just happen in print!), and I'm discovering that I still love the story. After every chapter, I have a moment of, "Did I write that? That's pretty good!" I suppose this falls into the category or writing a book you'd like to read. I'd definitely buy this book! 😁 I'm feeling pretty darn proud of myself.
The audio book is contracted to be completed by September, but if my narrator keeps at it the way she has been, it could be sooner. I'm pretty excited, more than I thought I would be considering how long it took me to dive into this new-to-me medium.
I hope you'll all love it as much as I do! Can't wait to share it with you.
