The final stretch
Just one last click to approve the pre-press, and off she goes! Off to the printing machines 😀 Oh boy, what have I NOT felt during this period: awe, pride, doubts, the critical voice in my head, the perfectionist in me (didn't think I had one, honestly 🤷♀️), a sort of motherly and protective feeling of sending my 'baby' into the world, on its own! 😮, feeling anxious and excited about the fact that 'my baby' is being born into physicality (on actual paper, that is), exhaustion, frustration when in my experience things were taking too long, but most of all I am so happy about the whole process, what it has brought me and continues to bring me. Would I have made the decision to actually publish, if I had known it would be such an emotional roller coaster? Maybe, maybe not,....I'm not sure 😂 But in all seriousness, I'm very glad about where I'm at in the process😀
Holding Concepts in my hands is coming closer and closer, and I'm so thrilled to say that I've already had several orders, without even putting it online 😍😍😍 This makes me really excited and it gives me that little bit of confidence that I do sometimes need.
