    Thank you! I can so relate and as I’m in one of the negative stages of my novel–it’s done, no wait it’s not, no wait it is, no…yeah..that stage–this just brought me to tears with laughter. So, again, thank you.

  2. Ok, this was great up to stage 5. But it’s missing at least 1 stage, maybe 2. What about AFTER the editing is done and you have a publishable manuscript? And what about AFTER it’s accepted and you have a book? Yep. It needs at least 2 more stages. 🙂

    Thanks for the laughter, though.

  3. Fun-ny!!!! And so true! Thanks for sharing it, Eddie. I’m going to post it on my Christian Writer’s Den blog for tomorrow!

    This was perfect! I can soooo relate as I’m in the editing stage right now >:0 (that is my editing face – mostly stunned aggravation). Thanks for sharing your video.

  6. Thanks for posting this, Eddie! I considered adding more steps after Editing, but I was hoping to keep the film PG . . .

    Write on!

    Hilarious! I laughed so hard, and all the while kept saying that’s me, that’s me!
