Somebody Give Me a Cookie

Today I did it. I finally finished edit # 41,506 and completed my WIP. 

It wasn't looking good this morning, what with a sick kid who had to skip surf camp and hang out with me all day. But hooray for Jimmy Neutron, because I plopped her down in front of the TV nanny and finished my last chapter. 

Whew!

After you eat all your cookies, I mean. : )

Thanks, Melody and Spyscribbler. Next steps include: researching agents, posting my query in AW's SYW for a polish, and gearing up for a conference in September.

But first I think I'll drink heavily.

Yes! I'm so thrilled for you! And how exciting that we're going through all this together. :)

Thanks, Precie and Diane. The next book is out there in the ether, but it's slowly forming in my mind.

I just found your blog -- and what good timing -- as you've proved that one can indeed finish a first draft!

That's my goal...I'm 2/3 there...
