Thanks for sharing this! With the pressure from social media and to document everything, it feels like you’re *supposed* to have this wave of emotion when you touch your book for the first time. That’s hogwash. You can feel however you wanna feel, even if that feeling is “I don’t know if I feel anything.”

I love this post. Thank you for sharing all of these feelings and the weird tension that exists for authors.

I've always loved this quote on success: "When you are actually succeeding, it tends to be quiet and comes always quite unannounced and without a lot of fanfare." ~Teresita Fernández
