“Hi Tanita: I have finished the novel–and I really enjoyed it!”
Oh, thank God. Really. This has seriously been a LONG HAUL, and I should have let go of this novel at least three months ago, but kept rewriting it and doing stupid things like, oh, changing character names. (You know you should STOP FIDDLING ALREADY when no one in your writing group knows the characters names anymore. “Oh, is her name still Donnalyn? Or Ceici? Or is she Alice?”)
It’s amazing how good it feels sometimes to just get a book out of your hands.
And now the real work begins…!
