Last full day to work on the book. It never gets easier. So far, I've done a dozen, but finishing a book is always difficult. All the last minute changes, trying to squeeze in all the things I forgot to put in, trying to edit out all the mistakes I thought were already taken out.
It's a booger, I tell you. My neighbor, Tom Augherton, just came up the hill and caught me in my typical royal, serene, total confidence mode.
But, like child birth, the misery will soon fade and the next book idea will loom ahead like a sensuous dream.
