TBW Revision Finished!

Well, this draft is finished anyway. There will be more.

I've added over 20,000 words, so now TBW (which is a YA fantasy) has 80,108 words, 291 pages. And I've transferred it from the dinosaur (my old PC without internet) to Mount Doom (the MacBook I'm writing this post from).

"So, why is a raven like a writing desk?"

Do any of you know where this question comes from? Perhaps you have an answer. Mine would have something to do with dreams at the moment. That might have something to do with the story I've been working on, or it might be that I'm longing for my pillow.

Happy August! 


  1. Congratulations!! It is such a strange feeling to finish something you have worked on for such a long time...surreal.

    Well done, you!


  2. Yay, Myrna! Great job! And I think that question comes from ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND (or at least Disney's animated version of it). I think it does. I'm not entirely sure...

  3. Congratulations.

    I like the nicknames for your computers. My PC should be called Slowpoke.

  4. Finishing a draft (or a major revision) is ALWAYS cause for a celebration!

  5. Congrats on finishing your draft! How exciting and what a great feeling. Hope you can relax a little now. :)


  6. Wow! Look at you go! I'm so glad you are getting it done. Now for sleep.... And the question is from Alice in Wonderland, isn't it? Something about being a rest for pens and the other a pest for wrens.... Have a great day. I'm back to blogging and so happy to reconnect!!! Hugs!

  7. Are all of your kids in school now?

  8. Hi, I'm newer to your blog and want to say congratulations. That is a great accomplishment!

    I hope this doesn't sound odd, but I noticed a comment you left on Natalie Whipple's blog re anxiety and wonder if you'd be open to a quick chat about it with me? Do you have an email address or should I give you mine? I guess I'm just trying to figure out how other writers balance serious anxiety/depression with the day job and writing . Thanks either way, just let me know.


    1. Hmm. I doubt that I ever have things balanced; that's actually a source of anxiety for me. My e-mail is in my profile. You're welcome to use it, but make sure you include a subject line or I'll assume it's spam.

  9. Hello there! Did you ever deal such a position when someone has stolen any of your personal ideas? Can't wait to hear from you.
