PLEASE LET THE END BE IN SIGHT

Today I am feeling a bit disheartened. Why? Well I have been editing my first novel for a while now. A Year and a half to be exact. The funny thing is that it only took me 3 months to write it. It currently feels as if I won't ever get past the editing process. I know editing is necessary but 9 drafts of the same book? No, I think it is time to stop editing already. At least that is how I feel. My brother who wasn't very enthusiastic about my writing, read my book and has recently joined my personal cheer section and wants nothing more than for me to be published. He believes I am that good. He, like me, is a perfectionist and reminds me constantly to make my manuscript perfect. It can be a bit tiresome wanting to be perfect all the time.

The other reason I am a bit bummed is that I completely missed my 1 year blog anniversary! The horror! I don't know how the 17Th of May passed me by. I only realized that today is the 18Th. And the sad part is that you only have your first blog birthday once...

So... A BIG THANK YOU TO ALL MY FOLLOWERS. I APPRECIATE EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU. THANK YOU FOR ALWAYS BEING THERE FOR ME AND CATCHING ME WHEN AT TIMES I KEPT FALLING. YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME. AN EXTRA BIG THANK YOU TO HEATHER GARDNER. WE BOTH STARTED IN THE SAME MONTH BUT YOU HAVE ENCOURAGED AND HELPED ME ALONG SINCE THE BEGINNING. THANK YOU. I COULDN'T HAVE REACHED THIS MILESTONE WITHOUT YOU.
