I interrupt this blog for some self-congratulatory tomfoolery.

I finished my novel Lotus Petals.

So after six months (holy crap!!!) of writing.  A fabulous critique from a literary agent. Followed closely by a devastating critique by another literary agent. A total collapse of my self-confidence. Trashing a THIRD of my novel to rearrange the plot. I typed the words THE END last night.

Fairly accurate depiction of how I look after writing a novel.

I know there's still hard work ahead. I have November for editing, then it's off to my beta readers in December. January brings another round of editing. And THEN off to my editor.

But for now, spare me this moment of self indulgence. This one moment to say: booyah!
