Almost There

Almost. That’s a good word. Very hopeful. It’s been a good five years at least. But I think it’s almost done. My little novel, that is. It’s a really patient one. I mean, it’s put up with me for a long time, and never bugs me when I have taken months away from it. And sometimes I have done that, although its always in my mind. I have to be in a certain state and have a certain emptiness and calmness in my mind to concentrate. Otherwise the things like kids, work, kids…keep yelling too loud for me to think about it. So it really has had to be patient a good deal. But now it is beginning to stir and to stretch its limbs because we can see the end of the tunnel. Now the question is, what to do with it. Recently a friend’s husband published his own novel on Amazon. That has a certain appeal to me. I just want to share my little ideas with others. And hope that someone else out there finds it as moving/entertaining as I hope. What have you, bloggy friend’s of mine, done with your own achievements?

  1. This is exciting news. Getting to that finishing line is a major moment. I sent mine to an agent, and of course that will probably involve a lot of rejection, but I felt it was important to let it go and see where it ended with out my tight hands around it.

    • Thanks Kate! When I read about you sending yours off, I was so filled with admiration. It is an exciting thing. I am proof, proof, proof reading and I think the ending needs a teeny bit. Then on to the next! (which I kinda started anyway) I can’t wait to hear of the progress of your own literary baby.
