Big relief when I finished the first draft of my new manuscript this weekend. I felt so light, I hadn’t realized there was a 20 tonne weight on my back until it was gone. My first book was not a fluke. I may be a long way from being published, and I still have lots to learn, but at least I know I have the stamina to keep writing.

There’s more editing to be done, plus I’m going back to work on the last manuscript now that I’ve a learned a bit more from my reading, but for the moment I’m savoring the accomplishment.

Now that I’m no longer looking at the keyboard, I see that Halloween is almost here. My favorite holiday! There are decorations to go up, pumpkins to be bought and cookies to be baked. Off I go to live a little.

Thanks for reading! More posts on books, film, and writing can be found on my website at Lorel Clayton Author.
