What A Letdown…

I never thought I’d experience it…

I read it on the Long Ridge Writers Group forum, but never thought it would happen to me.

Someone on the forum mentioned feeling a little bit of “what do I do now?” after completing a writing course, that they put so much into.

The forum moderator chimed in, and said the same thing happens when finishing a novel–it’s a mixture of happy and sad.

I felt the same thing, but in a different way…

For about the last month, I’ve worked on the script for my first video sales letter (VSL), which involved a few client consultations, several drafts, as well as researching and learning the framework I needed to use.

Today, I sent the final draft for client approval. I’m happy to hand it off, and to say it’s done, after any edits.

But I’ve invested so much time and inspiration into it…it’s almost like I’m sad to see it go–seeing a great friend have to take a plane home after a week-long visit to your house, or something like that.

But in order to have its full impact, this script has to move on to be recorded, and then posted to the internet. To spread its wings and fly.

How about you? Have you ever finished a big project, story, novel, or what-have-ya, and then felt a little sad after it was done?

Drop me a line and let me know.

Until next time,
