As of this evening, I have completed the first draft of the novel!

Sure, I realize it is far from being truly finished, but this is like getting the frame work done on a house and finally seeing kinda what it's going to look like when it's done.

I had a lot of help on this, and to all of those folks, I am incredibly thankful. I have also formatted it for 6"x9" trade paperback size, and even in it's current un-fleshed state we're looking at just under 200 pages, just at 53,000 words. Not bad for a first effort by a little old housewife in Indiana.

Hopefully this means a return to more regular blogging. This poor little site has really suffered from my inablilty to multi-task creatively. I can multi-task the mundane, but not things like this.

Wish me luck. I start with the agency query letters this week. I have a couple of leads I will be looking into.

And thank you for all of your patience.

Glad you're catching up, hope the novel is a success, I can only imagine the tribulations, since I'm on dial-up.

So have you set up one of those NaNoMo blog thingies for books? It might be good for publicity or something.

Good luck though!

Oops! Sorry. It's one of those blogger features that lets you publish a book blog. I forgot you're a MuNuvian.
