First of all, thank you all who have put up with my numerous posts about this novel saga, a 20 year novel saga. I finally finished my novel draft today, on Labor Day, 2018! At first, I was comparing the completion of this project to my dissertation. That's not quite accurate. Let's just say, I am not so deflated as I am freed. My shoulders are lot less tense, and now I can move onto the revision, the pitching wars, and other short projects.
The novel is currently 24 chapters 110,371 words. Of course, I will have to lengthen some of the chapters, and this version will look different than the final version. Now, I have to develop a revision and writing schedule because I want to have this book accepted for publication or self-published by summer 2019, no later.
I can't say enough about how much your support means to me. With that said, have a fantastic Labor Day Weekend. (If you haven't done so, download my free book La Bruja del Barrio Loco. Today is the last before before the big Black Friday event in November.)
Celebrate with me! #Resist!
