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.
Hurray! What's your next step?
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. :)

I finished my first draft yesterday so now I can start round 2 of edits on my memoir. How did I end up with TWO MSs to edit? lol.
Thanks, ac and Janna! And geez, that was fast, Melanie! Congrats to you, too!
YAY!!! Congrats! And good luck with querying!
Congrats! Now, the next book?
Thanks, Precie and Diane. The next book is out there in the ether, but it's slowly forming in my mind.
I'm a little late to the party, but congrats to you. What an incredible feeling!
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...
Thanks, Aaron and Amy. Glad you stopped by!
