A Letter

Dear Blog,

It must be said. You, dearest Blog, are covered with dust and layers of loneliness. You're not meeting my eyes right now - could it be that you feel abandoned? Do you resent that you've been left to fend for yourself in cyberspace?
I take full responsibility and I offer my deepest apology. I do, however, have a rather wonderful excuse.
The novel is finished. It is, of course, still in need of lots of reviews and edits - but I finally wrote the end. In order to get to that point, I had to put all of my concentration into writing....which resulted in my absence from you. But it's done - and now, during the ensuing search for an agent (yikes!), I will have more quality time for you.

Thanks for hanging in there with me.

Love, Christie

HALLELUJAH!
It's go great to hear that you have finished "the novel"! I am so proud!
I know that it is going to be wonderful; can't wait to have my own copy.

Yaaaayy! Great job, Christy! Are you happy with your ms? It's a great feeling to finish, isn't it?

Good luck with the agent search. I'm so glad you're back! I missed you.

Wooohooo!!! Nothing feels better than writing those two magical words at the end of a manuscript. Looking forward to it with my current WIP, but alas, it's many thousands of words and a few months away.

Congrats--and good luck finding it a home!
