I finished the draft of HOUSE OF BONES about ten minutes before midnight on New Year's Eve. Then I closed my journal (I wrote it longhand) and tucked it away.
It is agonizing to ignore something so new and exciting! But if I managed to ignore the iPad hubby got me for Christmas while it sat, unwrapped, in the closet, I can certainly ignore my novel for a few more days.
On Monday, I will visit it again. Not to do any revisions yet, but to type it into Word and make notes of things that will need to be changed/added/cut.
I'm thrilled to have a new manuscript to focus on in 2012!
What are YOU excited about in this new year?
