Good news times two!
First bit of good news - I reached the end on my manuscript over the weekend! Did you hear my cheers across the miles? Oh, I was so happy! And I'm really pleased with it, in general, which is always a good feeling.
I revise a lot as I go along, it's what works best for me, so by the time I reach the end I have a pretty clean draft. (Please note if you are a writer and you do NOT work this way, it's okay - we all have to figure out what works best for ourselves. There is no "right way"). Still, I will be going through it this week and doing some revision before I send it off to my agent to see what she thinks.
The other bit of good news is that THE BRIDGE FROM ME TO YOU is a South Carolina 2016-17 Junior Book award nominee. Making state lists is always great because it means more kids will find your book.
I was thinking I might go do a little shopping to celebrate. I still have a bookstore gift card I haven't used yet from Christmas - ack! But first, I better finish those revisions...
