I had a major writing breakthrough last night. MAJOR. I am so stoked about it that I want to shout it from the tops of cliffs, preferably while wearing a white shirt that billows in the breeeze. But since cliffs aren't subway accessible where I live and this shirt will definitely make me look fat....

... I'll settle for typing out jubilant whoops
on my blog.

Woo hoo! Yay! Yippee!

I can see the end, people! I'm almost done with my (latest) rewrite of novel #1! Another couple weeks of hard work, followed by a couple months away from my manuscript, then another read/edit with fresh(ish) eyes, a read by my trusted writer friend, more edits and then -- five or so months from now -- I'll send it off to my agent.

I am very excited, I must say. I feel like I spend so much time worrying and thinking and working working working that I don't enjoy the moments when everything comes together and clicks, you know? So today I'm throwing a party in my brain. And you're all invited! Who's bringing the guacamole?
