BUT, BUT, BUT then you find out your book is on Goodreads and you do a dance that looks a bit like this:
"My book is on Goodreads! I can't believe it. It's real! Someone's going to read my book!"
Then you realize what you just said.
Suddenly, you're very motivated to rewrite, revise, and edit ten thousand more times. Which is exactly what I'm doing right now because if you click here you'll see that my book is on Goodreads! AHHHHHH!!!
