I’ve been working on something exciting for the last four hours: the Acknowledgments section for my book. It has been difficult for me, not only because there are so many people to thank, and not only because there is no possible way I could list every single one of my friends, and not only because I hope there are no hurt feelings about that fact, and not only because my brain is a jumbled, thankful mess at the moment, but also just because I’m having a hard time editing myself.
I mean, I’m just not the type of person who can write, “To so-and-so: thanks for everything!” I have to expand on that.
You long-time readers know that I tend to be long-winded when it comes to certain topics. Expressing thanks in writing happens to be one of them. You people might as well settle in, and grab some snacks.
So I’ve written this HUGE Acknowledgments section that doesn’t even thank every single person in my life whom I’d love to thank, and I am freaking out a little bit (I’ve noticed that I nearly always need to be freaking out about something) because I think my publisher just might laugh at me when she sees how long it is.
Then again, it’s not the first time I’ve been laughed at. So never mind.
I think it’s time to back away from the computer for a little while, and drink some tea.
By the way, thanks for reading.
P.S. Don’t worry, every post from here on out will not be about my book. Yet.
