I’m happy! I finished the major portion of the revisions on THE PROPOSITION late yesterday. I still have more to do, mostly cleanup and a final edit, then it goes back to the editor for her final round of edits. But I am really happy. God I love this novella beyond words. We’ll see if I can get that across in the pages If nothing else, writing this book has brought me true joy.
Next week, I’m going to face the truth–Christmas is coming and I shall be forced to shop. I’m going to try to make a new deal with myself. Normally, I get really anxious (huge understatement) over gifts. I don’t want to disappoint anyone. Last year, I drove myself to exhaustion trying to make the perfect Christmas.
Then BLB was hurt. And just like that, the presents and meals were meaningless. No one cared. All that mattered was that we pulled together as a family to deal with BLB’s injury. In the moment we needed each other, we were there.
So this year, I’m going to focus on what we all enjoy, be grateful we’re all here and that BLB has come as far as he has. We’ll do gifts, but they are just things. One missed-the-mark gift doesn’t change the love we have for one another.
Have a great weekend!
