Was it Gallo Wines that ran that ad? Well whomever it was did a good job with their advertising because decades later it has come back to me as the perfect phrase! It fits to a tee how I feel about the editing and publishing process. Just when I think I might be done with my book, alas, I read through the manuscript and find I am, in fact. not. And that phrase comes back to haunt me because I know it’s the truth.
I am beginning, however, to feel like a pregnant woman who is 4 weeks overdue. I mean, I know it should be time. I do. However I revert back to the wine ad and I know in my heart it is not. I want so badly to cut the cord of my first book, my memoir. Ah, but I can’t. Not yet. Soon. And oh how I will rejoice on that day.
