(Imagine me dancing and singing in my kitchen)
I did it, I did it. I really, really did it. Oh yeah! Alright! I’m a rock star.
My entire novel is WRITTEN. Sure it took ten months (really only eight if you don’t count the two months that I didn’t write at all), sucked the life out of me, and made me want to delete it at least a dozen times. But, IT. IS. DONE!!
Am I ready to query? Heck no! Does it stink in a lot of places? Oh my goodness, yes. Yet, it has a beginning, middle and end. Not that I’m happy with the end (actually the last four chapters are making me crazy), but it’s done.
AND THE EPILOGUE IS AWESOME! It was a little flash of brilliance in an otherwise dismal denouement. Not that the writing was perfect, but the idea is just lovely.
I wish you all a season full of happy moments just like this one! WAHOOOOOOO!!!!
Doesn’t it feel great?
I’ve written sixteen novels, and I still get that same kick when I get to the end!
It does! It’s wonderful! Wahoo!!!

I just finished my first novel in November and now I’m revising it. Your bio and mine sound almost the same.
Wish I had the room for the Viszla, my husband’s favorite dog. Do you have a name picked out? Is it Angus?
Congratulations! Kick back and enjoy the holidays!
@Desert Rocks – Our Vizsla is a girl. My daughter wants to name her Scarlett, and my son wants to name her Rosy. It will be a battle.

My husband had one called Ginger.
I think they are adorable.
Our dog was a compromise ’cause he looked like a Vizsla without legs. He was Napolean- we called him Nappy and he was a miniature dachshund. I miss him so much. He did our homeland security for sixteen years.
I can’t wait to read it after it’s published and sitting on the shelves at Barnes and Noble!
