Not only was there just your general run-of-the-mill writing, but there were also projects to invent and tutorials to write for the projects, and photos to take for the tutorials, and Matt did a TON of design work for me, from the overall proposal package down to creating diagrams and helping me professionalize my pattern pieces. I don't know how anyone manages to put together a book proposal without a professional graphic designer in her family. It was a CRAZY amount of work, but seriously engrossing, as well, as I'm sure you can imagine.
So today some proposals are wending their way off to some agents who wanted to see one, and tonight:
Trip to the comic book store?
Sitting alone and staring at the wall, infused with the feeling of exhausted relief?
It's weird, but I cannot even think of a celebration celebratory enough.
