Until the copy edits are done, that is. But the major changes are done - completed - finito. We're down to typos, commas, and misspelled words. I have lost all objectivity and can no longer judge whether or not my story is ANY good. Although I did just read the first page to a fellow published writer here at Hollins and we both got chill-bumps. I think that's a good sign. Yes?
     Still, it's mildly terrifying to know my words are getting that much closer to being public, where anybody can read them. I find myself torn between the pride of "Look What I Made!!!" and "No, don't read it, you might not like it!" I suppose it will be out of my hands very soon... I hope you like it. :)
     To celebrate sending my manuscript off—back to my editor, Ruth Sanderson and I went to Brusters and had banana splits for lunch. Best banana split EVAH!!!!!
