Let It Go
At 12:50 this morning, I finished the book, Apart at the Seams. It’s due today. I just need to clean up a few things here and there, and then I’m ready to release it to the publisher. As much as I have loved it, as much as there has been a lot of happiness in writing this story, it has also weighed so heavily on me for the last four months since I started this edit that there hasn’t been a day when I’ve woken up without a stomachache.
And now, this is exactly how I feel as I let it go: not a sadness in the release, but an absolute peace that this thing that has been dragging down my heart finally doesn’t have a hold on me anymore.
I really hated that version of “Let it Go” that was popping up on Facebook last week where the person redubbed it with the words “fuck it all.” Because that’s not what Elsa is saying. She isn’t rejecting her power, casting it off. She’s embracing it by letting it go, by not restricting herself, and allowing herself to love this thing that has brought her so much heartache.
So I do love the book. And I hope you guys love it too. And I am so thrilled to let it go.
