Finished Manuscript and Other Updates

December 22, 2011:
          I finished my first complete manuscript! Ahhh! The Lighthouse (to be renamed) is complete (first draft) at   94,472 words, forty-two chapters, and roughly 271 pages. There is no set date for the starting of the second draft, but I will be taking approximately a one month break.

          In January I am taking a two week college class, so any serious writing/editing is on hold until I get back. Most likely no starting dates will be set any earlier than February. Even so, I'm starting to construct my list of possible people for my "editorial team", who will start coming onto the scene sometime after the second draft. Exciting stuff! I'm also looking into both independent publishing and traditional publishing. Hopefully by the time that comes around I'll have all my researching homework done.

          During my hiatus from writing The Lighthouse, I have a pile of books that need to be read and reviewed before my class in January, so that'll keep me busy in my spare time. When I get back, I'm going to be kicking butt on the school so I can finish up and put in a lot of hours rewriting before I start working this summer. Ah, the craziness!

          Woke up today to about 3-4 inches of snow! Woohoo! It's about time it found its way to Vermont. However, it's melting fast :-(  I'm hoping it will snow again before Christmas - there's just something wrong with Christmas in Vermont with no snow. Makes me think of the movie White Christmas.

         Enjoy your Christmas!!
