WIP: Wow, It's Turning into a Book!

And with only eleven days until deadline, it better be!
When you’re working on a massive project like a 125,000 novel, it’s so hard to see the whole. Today, I took a step back and really looked at it as a “book” instead of one little scene after another, and I felt such relief! It’s a complete story and not half bad. I definitely still have eleven days worth of work to do on it, (and after speaking  with a most helpful criminal attorney today, I realize I have a few scenes in need of a complete overhaul), but the light is now visible at the end of the tunnel.
On another note, my June 5th post about my friend Michele Moomaugh has turned into a lovely tribute to her by her friends around the world. I never expected that, and it warms my heart to see so many memories about her shared on my blog.
It’s after midnight, so I’m off to rest up for another full day at the computer tomorrow.
Night, all.

    Good luck in overhauling those scenes Diane. Eleven days — who needs to eat or sleep, right? I can’t wait to read the book in its final form.
    I was sorry to hear about Michele Moomaugh.

    Thanks, Trina.
