The waiting game...as you see bits of your book coming together. Like a jigsaw puzzle with the end-piece border in place but so much of the in-between remaining.
But working with a small press means only two or so projects are in play at the same time, so progress continues faster than usual.
Still, at a slower pace than my patience has the tolerance for on any given day.
I want to rip off the wrapping right now!
I want all the candy!
