|I couldn't have done it without the patience (emphasis on patience)|
and support of my handsome husband!
I’ve completed the first draft of my novel! WHOO HOO!!!
Now, I know that I have many, many, many revisions to do, but it is a great feeling to have reached this first major milestone in my writing.
I want to jump right into the revisions, but I’ve decided to let my manuscript sit for a week without looking at it and come back to it fresh next week, ready to work.
|It was my mom's encouragement that kept me going. She's|
my biggest fan (although totally biased). I love you, Mom!
Who says that camping can’t be productive??? (Lucky for me, my computer battery died just as I typed – and saved – my final sentence.)
Cheers to accomplishing our goals and reaching for our dreams!
*Special thanks to my mom, husband, best friends Jill and Laura, and my sister. Also, I never would have started or continued this novel without the encouragement of my 6th and 7th graders in Arizona. I began writing with them in class and it grew from there.*
