Happy New Year everyone! I’ve had an exciting Holiday season and decided to change the look of the blog to celebrate my big news:
I FINISHED FIE EOIN!
I also found out that I won a contest at Kowloon by Night for a full manuscript critique! So a few minutes ago I hit “SEND” on the entire re-written and edited version of The Nameless Warrior, which you all know as Fie Eoin 🙂 I can’t wait to see what he says! He’ll be the first person who has read the entire re-write, beginning to end. Did the new storyline work? Did he like the twists and turns the plot takes? Are the relationships more solid, the head-hopping gone, the description more vivid? I know the pacing still needs work, and passive voice snuck in (ahhh scientific writing, you will not let me go), and I probably repeated things, but I do hope that overall it works.
For right now, though, I’m not worrying about that. I’m taking a break, playing LOTS of WoW, and beginning the read through of Apollo and Daphne to figure out what needs work there (ugh, pacing).
And I’m celebrating. Oh yes, I’m celebrating! Ten years of work, and it’s finally to a place where I am happy sending it out to complete strangers 🙂 Why don’t you celebrate with me – there’s plenty of wine to go around!
Finally to Kindra and Kaye, who have let me enjoy their journey with them, I say: Shine On!
