Sometimes, ignorance truly is bliss.

My team coordinator started the senior editor review of one of my books today, and discovered something I was too new to know. Specifically, the new book I'm working on with Enigman is too long for one volume, and has to be split into two. To judge from the groans of sympathy when I mention to someone that I'm doing a new book, and the gasps of horror when ReunionGal said that the book had to be split, I should be terrified and/or irritated by the whole process.

Instead, I'm excited by learning new stuff, and by the responsibility of a whole brand new book all to myself. Maybe I'll feel differently the next time I'm assigned a new book, but right now, I'm thrilled.
