the end

July 17, 2007

That’s it. The End. At 17.40pm today, a few weeks later than I planned, I typed the last sentence of my novel, I have written 80,000 words in two months and a few days. But that was the easy bit. The difficult part is getting it published. Later this week I will email it to a literary agent and then I must sit back and wait. Now, since it is my birthday, it is time to go out and drink pink champagne.

Or, as I would predict, "The Beginning"....

Good on you gal! I knew you had in you. When are you starting on the sequel? Have a glass of pink champane for me. You deserve it.

I predict - I don't know why - that you won't be waiting too long. Good luck and keep up the blog.

HUGE congrats - I bet your fingers are typed down to stumps. Finishing on your birthday sounds most pleasing......it'll be published by the time the next one comes round. Mind you - working at that rate you could polish off another two........come on chop, chop! x

Congratulations Mimi! That's a fantastic achievement. I'm sure it will be a really great and amusing read. Looking forward to getting my copy and I'll be honoured if you'll please sign it.
Wishing you lots of luck with publishers and agents.
Happy Birthday!
