Done

This day was a long time in coming. I finished my rewrite.

Boo-yah!

Even better -- THE BOOK IS FREAKING AWESOME.

I broke down today and went to Starbucks because it's the only place that I seem to crank out pages. And I wanted to be done.

Let me tell you, I HATE paying close to 5 bucks for a drip coffee. It kills me. I will never complain about the price of Starbucks in the States again. Although 5 bucks / finished manuscript = TOTALLY WORTH IT.

Of course, I'm not really done.

Tomorrow I have to read through the whole thing to see if it all works from start to finish. Then I have to ship it off to my betas so that they can give me their opinions before I send it on to agent extraordinaire, who I hope (god help me) will love it as much as I do.

I'll keep you posted.

  1. I can identify with you. just finished rewrite # 123 of my book. It is at the proofreader's and we are beginning to design the front and back covers. Isn't it exciting?
