I have never made so many false predictions of when this manuscript would be ready. I am amazed! Every time I’ve set a deadline, I’ve arrived there realizing that the manuscript is nowhere near ready. I’ve NEVER missed an article deadline with an editor, but I haven’t been right about this book . . . not once!
I don’t get it. This is, after all, my first book. This is what I tell myself. But the concern over presenting a perfect manuscript has me forever second-guessing myself. The editor in me is in high gear (not in my blog though . . . in case you’re wondering. Here, I don’t worry about that. I just want to express myself without being the editor.).
I’m close to a submission date. But the picky stuff has me by the neck. I’m going to press through though and hope to submit this manuscript by sometime next week. Let’s hope.
