Just a quick status report.
Today was my goal date to have my revisions done, but due to my life being totally out of my control, I'm not quite there yet. My new goal is next Tuesday. That should give me enough time to get all the loose ends wrapped up and get a few queries out the door. I'm feeling all giddy just thinking about it. :)
Even without accomplishing my goal, today is still pretty significant for me. It was one year ago today I sat down and wrote the very first words on my precious little novel. :) The thing that suprises me the most is that the very first scene I wrote is still in there. The original version is awful, and it's been heavily revised, but the heart of it is still there.
And I'm still here. Not here on Blogger. Here, still writing. This is the only "hobby" I've ever followed through on. That sounds really sad, now that I've typed it, but it's true. (Now I have Metallica going through my head. Sad but Truuuuue! Complete with a little headbanging at my desk.) My enthusiasm for every other thing I've tried has fizzled out after only a few months. So, looks like this one's stickin'! Woohoo!
Guess you guys are stuck with me. Like it or not. ;D
