Oh snap, final editing is done

I feel kind of nervous and terrified at the same time. I have finished my self-editing and have sent my novel off to my beta-readers and I am shaking as I am typing this post. I was confident while editing, but now...at this stage not so much. My courage is hiding in my shoes. What if they hate it?

Anyway, I still haven't saved enough for professional editing services yet and will probably only send it off for editing next year only. I have stupidly given myself the publishing date of September or October of 2015. But I have no problem postponing it even further if I have to. The reason I chose September or October of next year was because I wanted to publish my first book before I was thirty. But it might not be a good enough reason. If everything goes according to plan, which it never does, I will probably make it. But I am not stressing about it right now.

At least I will have my brother's data to keep me busy for the rest of this month and next month. We have a mammoth task in front of us, but I know we can do it. To give you an idea, I have over 10 000 pages of scientific data to enter into a specific document and format, but I feel happy about the fact that I will be making my brother's job easier, as he doesn't have all that time to enter data.

Anyway, enough about me. How are you doing? What is going on in your life?
