finished. again.

Sometimes, for kicks, I go back and read my blog posts from a year ago to see what I was doing.

It's funny how cyclical life is. This time last year I was finishing up edits for my super-agent for Luminance Hour. This time this year I'm finishing up edits for my super-editor for Luminance Hour. Hopefully (hopefully) this will be the last time I'll have to revise Luminance Hour. I would've said edit, but there's this lovely little stage called copy-edits that's looming in my future!!

I know my journey with Luminance Hour is far from over, but it's still very strange to be "almost done" with the brunt of the manuscript work. After over two years of writing, revising, writing, revising... This whole writing a book thing is not for the weak or faint-of-heart.

Good thing I finished in time for the 4th of July!


  1. It is absolutely never-ending, isn't it? I predict every author is basically sick of their novels by the time they hold them in their hands. (Although I'm sure they get re-interested really quick when they realize they are HOLDING THEIR NOVELS IN THEIR HANDS!) Best of luck with getting to hold yours fairly soon, and thank you for your sweet comments on my blog!

    1. It is the manuscript that never ends! And it goes on and on, my friends!!

      Yes. That's how I feel now, all the time. But I'm thinking that moment I first hold it will make it all worth it!
