Oh, that inevitable moment when you look at the book that’s about to go into print and realize it’s superficial, clumsy, repetitive, and needs to be tossed in the bin and rewritten from scratch.
I know the feeling — I have it after every paper or proposal. You need to leave the book be for several months until it’s out of your system and you’re more likely to appreciate it again.
So true. I only looked at it because the editors forced me to. 🙂 I knew the results wouldn’t be pretty.
And the editors are all, “are you sure this is the final final version?” Well, I used to be sure but I no longer am!
Neil Gaiman once said – for a writer, a book is a long piece of text with something wrong with it. 🙂
I’m sure it’s great, like all your other writing!
I feel like throwing up.
You’ll be fine. The book is fine.
Thank you. I’ll get over it. It’s like an obligatory flu at the beginning of winter.
Oh, just go ahead and gloat a bit. 😀 You deserve it.
Congratulations on the book!
Thank you. 😁
