I really can’t wrap my head around this last week.
- The emergence and separation of offspring from the body of the mother.
- The act or process of bearing young; parturition.
- The circumstances or conditions relating to this event, as its time or location.
- The set of characteristics or circumstances received from one’s ancestors; inheritance.
- Origin; extraction.
For lack of a better term, that best describes last week.
My manuscript that I had been working on since 1998 (see http://wp.me/pz9y7-a), the final tally of pages put it at 405 (370 abridged), was finally mailed to be shopped to be purchased / published. As I posted last Tuesday, September 8th:
“I feel sick, elated, melancholy, awkward, accomplished, lost, pained, victorious…11 years of painstaking work, memories, happiness, loss, discovery…the time is here, Blue Lines is about to be shipped off…the time is now.”
