Got the ending of the novel and danced wildly around the living room. The rush was great enough for me to stop caring about the scary food growing in the fridge, the dog hair in the corners, and just about everything else. If you’ve never finished a novel, you should try it. Quite a thrill.
Now I’m going through the whole thing to edit bits here and there, and hoping all the while that it makes sense. If no panic attacks set in I may post the first chapter online…I may have to drink a lot before I do something that crazy.
