The catch? I'm still not done with my story. I may have - oh, let's see... carry the one... another 25% of plot to complete. Then I will go on a massive editing spree and make everything mesh and sound coherent (which may take the rest of my life or something) and then - I might be open to having people read it and critique, which will result in more edits and meshing and blood, sweat and tears.
But dudes - I WROTE A NOVEL!! And it is an awesome feeling!
For now, WE DANCE!
(I'd like to give a special thanks to my supervisors at work for turning the other way when I was writing in my little blue notebook during down times so I could meet the 50K mark by November 30. And with this thanks, I ask that you continue to look the other way when I start in on the climax of the story - 'cause it's gonna get GOOOOD!! I hope...)
