I Did It!! #amwriting #Rainbows

“Standing In The Rainbow”

Woohoo! I took one look at my dog this morning, and knew this would be the day! Even luckier than a rainbow on the floor is one on a chocolate and tan dachsie. (Look it up. It’s true, I tell you!) So, who am I to scoff in the face of a lucky dachshund, standing in a rainbow? Instead, I sat right down and plowed through the epilogue of my WIP, typing The End at about 3:00 this afternoon. Yep. It’s official! Harbinger is done!! (Okay, except for the editing part, but I still think I can get this out by the end of May. That’s my story, an’ I’m stickin’ to it!)

Happy sigh. After a brief bit of R&R, I’ll start #3 of the Riverbend series, but for now, I’m going to bask in the sense of accomplishment that writing my 5th novel in less than three years has given me. And believe me, it feels FANTASTIC! Will they ever be studying my books in Literature Classes across the country? Nope. Do I care? Not a whit. Because there ARE folks out there who are enjoying them, and that’s what I set out to accomplish. I’m living a dream come true, and couldn’t be happier. (Richer, maybe, but not happier.) 😀

Dreams happen, folks. Never give up!

    • Thanks, Linda! I have a wonderful relationship with my editor. As I revise each chapter, I send it to her, and we work back and forth on it, until we’re ready for the next one. We have a good system, and we usually finish 3 to 4 chapters a week. I like to think what I give her is in decent shape to start with, so her job is easier. Of course, just because I like to THINK that, doesn’t mean it’s true. 😀 But we’ve become a good team over the last 3 years, anyway.


    • Thanks, Olga! I’m happily working on editing, now, which might be my favorite part. I learn something new (my editor’s a Grammar Goddess) every time, and I like seeing things get polished up. Have a great weekend.


    • Thank you, Gem! I’m still basking in the glow of accomplishment! 🙂 And glad you like the advice. If I can make my dreams come true at 72, I figure just about anyone can. Why not?


    • Never too late for kind comments, Liz! 🙂 Thank you so much. I didn’t take any basking time, though, as I started to work with my editor immediately. We’re still trying to get this out by the end of May. (Probably dreaming!) So we’re hard at it. Good thing I love editing. It’s where I see it all start to sparkle. 😀
