Delores Fletcher is finished!
I just finished the last chapter on my latest children's book, Delores Fletcher, Cobweb Catcher. It's such a good feeling to be finished with this part of the writing. This is not to say I'm completely ready to submit. Now comes the equally hard part of revisions. I have wonderful notes from Alan Gratz's critique of my first ten pages from last year's SCBWI conference and from my wonderful critique group. It's a nice feeling to know that even though the writing was done by me, I have the support of others to lean on for help. It's sort of like having the writers' equivalent of the Verizon team outside while I'm sitting at the computer. I now have two completed novels that I will be working on to revise and get out by the spring. I'm going to begin this weekend, but right now, all I have to say right now is Aahhh!
