I know you Dear Readers are waiting for the Grand Poopbah prizes to be announced, and they will.
Today is our one year blog-o-versary (it's actually almost over) and something very exciting happened. I printed up a rough, rough, rough first draft of the novel and gave it to a volunteer reader!!! Oh my stars, I thought the day would never come. But it has, and it feels oh so marvellously ... better. Like an itch that's been scratched, or a perfect back rub.
Now all I can think about are the changes I want to make in the rewrite, and the parts I want to expand, and the relationships I want to develop (in the book). It's all good.
The first draft is done!
hugging my hounds, and my saint of a husband, and my friend and advisor Rhonda, and all of YOU, Dear Readers
What would you have done?
