Last night, I finished the rewrite of my first novel. So, I have actually completed a finished novel, not merely a draft of one. I know editors will probably disagree, but I’ll put off thinking about that for now.
I worked on it for so long, finishing it feels a little like finishing high school. The end was always in some vague far-off future. Now it’s here. I feel I should get a diploma to frame.
Add novelist to my biography. Yay me!
I live in Missouri, a more beautiful place than many realize. I love writing, reading, walking, bicycling, and making lists. I’ve written poetry since I was seven. A few years ago I branched out into short fiction and memoir pieces. I also perpetually have a novel in progress. My brain pursues ideas at a brisk pace, wandering all over the map. This blog represents one of my efforts to keep up with it.

One thought on “Finish Line Crossed”
I am one of the very few people so far who has had the privilege of reading this novel. I will tell you one thing about it: IT IS GOOD!
