Brown paper packages


Nerves aside, I love this part of the process. Submission! Printing 300 pages, placing them in a clear plastic box file, wrapping the whole package in brown paper with parcel tape cut very precisely, all clean angles cushioned against the vagaries of the postal service. The weighty feel of it in my hands. I might hug it before I send it out there, to the agent, tomorrow.

Wow, brown paper, how beautifully traditional. Much much luck and speedy returns with excellent news!

Thanks, Nik and Tania. Yes, brown paper. How else to wrap something the size of a phone directory?!

Take a photo of you hugging it for posterity...

Thanks, MG. I tried to get Milly to hug it for luck but she just gave me a weird look and backed away. x
