Oh Sweet Relief!

It’s done. At least the first draft. Now, I have the arduous process of waiting for the edits to come back. But in the meantime, I can just bask in the knowledge that I have written the first draft of my first cookbook. How exciting is that?

Of course, after hitting send, I realized that some recipes that my husband and I really liked didn’t make it into the draft. Perhaps on the next cut. And some stories I wrote and rewrote, while others just didn’t make the cut.

I can’t help but worry. Is what I wrote enough? I love every recipe in the book, so I am not worried about that. But what about the stories? Are they detailed enough?

I worry. I can’t help that.
