Getting your first novel into print. It's like taking your hunk of manuscript (lets call it an elephant) across a small bridge that separates you from the publishing world.
It takes a step of courage and faith and madness. You need to keep going even though the chances are the bridge will collapse and you'll plummet to your death.
But heh if a bit of imagination can get Horton over. Then who knows. And authors are good at imagination.
Just one more step.
