On to the finish line

So, I was away for a while. I made some long-held dreams come true, and I gained confidence in getting out in the world on my own.

Here's some evidence of my travels:

Now I'm in the home stretch on my second draft, deep in the the third act. I'm very conscious of not ruining things as I rearrange, edit and polish the final pages. It's a struggle between not rushing through scenes, while keeping up the pace. I feel as though I can see the finish line... at least the 'send it out for beta readings' line. I can't wait to get this baby out into the world, whether that's traditionally (which I'll attempt first) or via self-publishing. It's also nerve-wracking as my heart and soul is in those words, but I'll save stressing about that for another day.

Here's a song inspiring me at the moment - what's inspiring you?
(unfortunate freeze-frame)


  1. Wow, I'm green with envy right now. Croatia, Greece and OMG - Venice! Looks like you had an amazing trip that will stay with you forever. How wonderful. As for your writing, well nothing beats typing those two little words - The End - so all the best for that and now I'm wondering if there might be a trip-inspired story in the pipeline too :-)

    1. You never know! I'm hoping those two little words will happen this weekend.

      Thanks for stopping by Amanda :-)
