Fiction Friday: I Finished It!
On Tuesday evening I turned my novel over to my writing group for review.
This is the fifth novel I've attempted, the third to make it to completion. It's far better than anything I've written before and represents the culmination of:
1) Three college writing classes
2) Fourteen writers' workshop, ranging from ones lasting a single afternoon to one that ran for a full week.
3) A million words written
4) 10,000 hours invested
5) Dozens of writer's group meetings
6) God only knows how many book on writing I've read and digested (and, often, read again)
I'm hoping to find an agent and a publisher, but if not, I'll publish it myself (either digitally or print-on-demand). Because this one's going to see the light of day.
This means I'll actually visit other people's blogs and catch up with everyone again.
At least, until it's time to start the next one.
