The Edits Are Done!

It's after 11:30 p.m. My eyes are drooping, my dog is wondering if I'm completely insane, and I know that 7 a.m. is going to come way too early tomorrow.

But my novel is done. Completed. Finished.

All new material to be written has been, well, written. All edits that needed to be done are done. All thoughts that I wanted to incorporate have been incorporated. Well, you get the idea. :-)

Now I have to get my synopsis in shape to reflect the changes, format the manuscript (I have to write in TNR, single-space for some reason, otherwise my creativity flees), print it out, and send it off.

And's time to work on the next one! Whether or not I give myself a break in between novels is unclear. I really don't want to take a break. I'm anxious to work on my WWII inspirational - that will probably be the next project. I'm about half-way finished with it, so if I concentrate hard enough, I might be able to complete it in a few months.

So tell me...where are you at with your writing projects?


  1. I hit the midpoint of my book last night and am ready to go back and revise my hero. I finally "know" him and he needs fleshing out.

  2. That's great Melissa - congratulations.

    Writing? I don't have access to my computer right now, so the writing is on the backburner.

  3. Congrats Melissa. About the same place as you :)

  4. Booya! That's seriously cool, Melissa! You must feel a huge relief.

  5. Awesome news Melissa! Congratulations on getting the novel done and edited. How does it feel?

It's Time

I've had this blog for over 10 years. But I'm finding that I go to it less and less. Maybe it's the death of blogging that broug...
