I need a cigarette and I don't even smoke

I seldom blog about my own writing process, mostly because there are already tons of blogs about that. But I will say that one of the most satisfying things in the world is not so much to finish writing a book, but to finish reading a book you just wrote. The thing is, if you like a story well enough to invest the time and effort to write a whole book, you want to read that book!

And I just did. (sigh of immense satisfaction) Anyone got a light?

Wow! Congratulations, Karen! I know that feeling - not well, but I do know it. I hope to join you for a, um, cigarette in about a month.

It's a great feeling, isn't it?

I only enjoy the reading process about six months after I'm done writing it. Congrats!

Really? I find it changes after six months ("I don't remember writing this!") but it still feels great right away.
