Staggering to the finish line...

I turned it in !!!
The ms of the sanitation history book (for teens).
Whew.
I feel like I ran a marathon.

Why do I judge myself so harshly for having a long hard time writing this?
If a friend ran 26.2 miles in, say, twelve hours, I'd say,
 WOW!!!! you covered 26.2 miles at one time.
Who CARES how long it took?

OK. So that's what I'm saying to me.
WOW! You wrote a book!!!
Who cares how long it took you?
Who cares it's "only" for school libraries?
YOU, Fresca, ARE AN AUTHOR.

Well.... OK, then.
*hangs head in sheepish delight*

Thank you very much.
