And I’m excited that today I completed my middle grade novel. I’ve plodded along steadily for three months, gritting my teeth through the muddled middle, waiting to be swept away by my quirky characters and their story.
And then it happened. This week, I averaged thirty-two-feverishly written pages a day.
This is where most of the magic happened.
There are plenty of revisions ahead – miles to go -- but right now I’m celebrating the fact that I completed another novel.
And I’ll leave you with this quote by Horace Mann (1796-1859): “A house without books is like a room without windows.”
