It's happening. It's nearly here. My first book

I can't really believe it, the moment is nearly here and it's a mixture of emotions. While there's an unbridled level of happiness that it's nearly finished, there's also a massive sense of relief.

I started writing the book over two years ago, and it only took me roughly a month to write 120000 words. Since then life happened, and I put it on the back burner. I went back and read over it, and it was clear there was so much more work to do. That put me off doing it, and I really went through a long period of time where I lacked any motivation.

Then it kicked again. And now its done. It's been edited, it's had a cover made for it, I've got an ISBN for it, its really all happening. This all feels so surreal. Soon I'll be able to hold a physical copy of the book in my hands and say, "I wrote this".

I can't think of anything else at the moment than getting to that point.
