I have over 34,000 words, written in a month that has seriously taxed my soul. I suffered two total emotional breakdowns, but I have also seen amazing highs and one of my favorite moments of all time1. My life is getting back on track2, and I still love my novel and am dedicated to finishing it. In fact, I'm confident that when it's done, it'll be publisher-worthy.
The people I've talked to about it are really excited. I have a handful of volunteer beta-ers that I absolutely adore and cannot thank enough for their continued support and coddling of my bruised ego. Believe me, I love. ♥
