Manic Mom's Mental Myriads

Stop by and have a laugh from Manic Mom's Mental Myriads on Motherhood, and some other stuff too, but mostly motherhood, wifehood, thoughts on writing, etc. No politics will be discussed here or geography, and I will not be solving any mathematical equations. Just some BS on whatever I feel like blogging on...

It's Finished

Thirty-eight months in the making (probably more than half of that time I wasn't even thinking about it).

Four-hundred forty-seven pages.

One-hundred twenty-one thousand, nine hundred fifty one words.

Done.

My first novel. Will it see the light of day via a bookstore window? That is my dream.

Congratulations, Stephanie? Isn't it a wonderful feeling? Did you get all teary-eyed when you typed the final THE END? I wish you the best of luck with editing it and finding an agent/publisher. I bet it's wonderful!

Thanks for the congrats guys. Anna--I really didn't feel the way I thought I was supposed to feel when THE END came. My husband came home from work all like, "It's time to celebrate!" because I had finished but I don't feel like it's real. I won't feel like I "wrote a book" until (pray, pray, pray) it gets published someday.

Stephanie, Dorothy here from the chick lit group. Why don't you change your settings to where no one can post anonymously? It would save you a lot of headache! Good going for finishing your manuscript, btw! We will be seeing you in New York before you know it!!!
