Manuscript Done!

I finished.  9,500 words, 40 double spaced pages, and a very happy writer.  Feels good to be in this moment.

Real good.

My reward? Four clean chickens and a new Food Savor.

But right now, I got me some Nickelback to listen to, while I have myself a damn good jog.

  11. If not here, then where? We gotta know!

    Very well done! I can imagine that happiness. They may just be a number, but those 9,500 represent a lot of energy and emotion.

  12. Porky: Talked to Tim about it a bit on the ride to the game store. I'm reconsidering an excerpt.

    Yes, the happiness is good. It's been a long hall with that bugger and I'm mighty happy to be in this moment.

    Thanks for stopping by and getting me to reconsider the whole excerpt thing.

  20. Before you post an exerpt, you should check whether a publisher will have objections to printing anything you've published, even partially, before.

    That aside, congratulations!

  25. Thanks, Lori: I had a FoodSaver back in the day, but after so many years, he died. Thanks for stopping by and catching up. I know you've been busy. Still no grill for us.

    Happy Eating :-)
