I've finished the writing - thanks for your prayersJust put the final period on the final sentence of the final chapter of my book. What a feeling!
Next up: begin editing - cut from 55,000 words to 50,000; format properly, find pullquotes. Then print manuscript and do the same looking at hard copy instead of computer. Finish by Friday and send off on a wing and a prayer.
Then wait for editor's edits, go over and reconcile.
Will keep you posted. The creative part is over, though. Thanks for your prayers!
Hooray, so glad to hear that you're finished with that part of the process!

Oooh, I do hope you don't have to edit your manuscript from 55,000 to 5,000. That would be the most brutal editing job ever. :) Congratulations on finishing!

WooHoo! Light at the end of the current writing tunnel! Self-editing is always an improvement. We both know that. Praying for this last mile before it flies out the window and you take your vacation. Sal
