I figured writing and revising a story was the hard part. But now I realize that part is similar to pregnancy, and getting a contract is like delivery. There’s the rush of relief at finally completing your pregnancy and holding your child. (Or in this analogy, contract!) But after that, you need to learn a whole new set of skills like blogging, social media, etc. in order to help introduce your child to the world. I have a feeling that author-hood, like parenthood, will be quite a learning experience. Here I go again!!
