mile marker 459

This morning at 9:30, I finally made it to the end of the draft. It is a whole book.   459 pages this moment, though that will change a bit.  Because of the way I write, polishing and easing and rewriting (a lot) as I go, what remains is aligning and putting in chapter breaks and filling in all the TKs (To Kome): this one needs a couple more recipes.  It’s SUCH a food laden novel!  I’m going to miss that part. 

Or maybe I’ll just write another foodie sort of novel.

    How about salmon, black beans and corn chili?

  2. Does it feel great to get to this point or are you concentrating on the next step of the book? A completed manuscript seems like such an accomplishment.

  3. Oooh, the salmon, corn and black beans sound good. I’ll have to nose around. Unless you have a great recipe?

    Rosie, it feels great. Great, great, great. But it’s better to mail.

  4. Yay! Congratulations….
    Do you have a book coming out in 2007? If so, this one, or one you’ve already completed?
    Can’t wait for the next, whenever it is.

  5. Congratuulations! The end is such a relief! And amazing rush!
